Osa Biological Station (Piro)


One of three cabins

Osa Biological Station (Piro) has 3 residential cabins. Each cabin is situated with 3 spacious, rustic bedrooms with capacity for four individuals in each room. Bedrooms are furnished with 2 bunk-beds, dressers, shelves, outlets and mosquito nets. We provide towels and sheets, but you are welcome to bring your own set. Cabins also include an indoor shower and bathroom, a gorgeous tropical outdoor shower, a bar and sink combination in the common area, chairs and hammocks, and a clothes-line for hanging clothes out to dry. The total capacity here is 36 individuals.


The dining area and common space

Osa Biological Station (Piro) also has a cabin designated as a workspace area that comes with a small library, an office, internet, and ample room to work with samples. This is a perfect area to hold workshops, discussions, and to give lectures and presentation.

Osa Biological Station’s large dining hall, dubbed Rancho Piro, has enough space to host large lectures and presentations and a community area for visitors to relax and get to know one another. It also provides wireless internet. A fully stocked and staffed kitchen and a brick oven complement the dining area, along with an office for the station manager.
