View Trips to Sirena Ranger Station

Overnight at Sirena Ranger Station
Our trips to Sirena Ranger Station are typically offered as day trips, with accommodations in comfortable eco-lodges, but overnight stays can be arranged for those who want an exciting and remote (and very rustic) night in the jungle. Sirena is the only ranger station that offers overnight lodging in dorm style accommodations. Bunk rooms are rustic and share common restrooms which include a shower, sink, and toilet. Because the station is in the wet, lowland jungle, mosquitoes are prevalent especially in the morning and evening (more problematic from May-November). Meals are typical Costa Rican casados for lunch and dinner and gallo pinto (beans and rice) for breakfast. Portions are hearty, and the fare is simple but appetizing. Sirena Ranger Station is run by solar panels and a generator and power is turned on facility wide from 5:30am to around 8:30pm. Cell phone communications are available in case of emergencies.
