The property holds a guest bunkhouse named Casa Hola Chau (Hello,Goodbye) that includes two indoor bathrooms, and dining hall, and communal living space. There are 4 bedrooms, each situated with two bunk beds, mosquito nets, electrical outlets and shelves. The maximum capacity at Casa Hola Chau is 12 – 16 people.

If you’re looking for a scenic experience, the property also has 3 private, screened platforms leading to a composting latrine and outdoor showers. These platforms will provide you with the closest experience to nature and the most breathtaking views – just don’t forget to bring a tent! Keep in mind that these platforms do not have electricity. The maximum capacity per platform is 1 person.

The Greg Gund Conservation Center also includes a beautiful education center donated to us by the Gund family. The education center includes a casual dining hall, kitchen, office, and is one of the best locations to hold workshops, educational courses, and general group assemblies.

Not far from the education center are the offices of our Executive Director and Land Conservation Manager which lead to the Cerra Osa trail. This 1442 meter trail cuts through areas of forest restoration, primary forest, and secondary forest. The trail eventually splits in two, with both ends trailing down to our Piro Stations, but more importantly the trail also passes by our tree-nursery which is located close to the GGCC property.
