Selva Biological Station, Selva Verde Lodge, or TirimbinaHi all,
Looking for feedback on the above places.
I am planning on spending 4 nights in the area in total, divided between two or the three.
Many main focus is wildlife photograhy - so am looking for the places with the most accessible and easily photographed animals.
I am most interested in frogs, monkeys and sloths.
If any one has been to the above places, (ideally more than one) - which would you recommend?

Thanks for the reply.
I think the La Biological Station is my first choice too. But I am torn between the other two. I was wondering what your reasons were for preferring Tirimbina?
I've seen some amazing frog pictures from Selva Verde, and it appears that the are easily found, which was making me lean towards them - but perhaps Tirimbina is the same?
Thanks for your help

3let's face it, dude... you can get "amazing frog pictures" all over the place!
my recommendation of tirimbina is subjective, of course. but it's a place that is for people that are interested in a more "in depth" experience. selva verde has 500 acres and tirimbina has 345 hectares (designated as a wildlife preserve by the costa rican government) and a much stronger education element.
really, for photographs, you could pick any of them. the most important part of where you stay is finding someone to show you and help you find the amazing frogs and other wildlife. i once volunteered at a small ecolodge and their gardener/maintenance man was always so happy to show people any animals he had found and photographers LOVED him.
