The field station will not accept more reservations until further notice. We apologies for any inconvenience. During summer and fall 2022, the dorms and the apartments will be closed due to Corona Virus (COVID-19).

  • El Verde provides visitors with a bed and bed sheets, access to a kitchen for meal preparation and very limited laboratory space. 
  • We charge a fee that allows us to maintain the station running. Feel free to contact us for current rates (
  • To assure space, contact us at least 30 days in advance. Field courses are welcome, but should contact the station with enough time to arrange its use.
    The forest at El Verde is part of El Yunque National Forest and most scientific activities will require a research permit from the USDA Forest Service and the Department of Natural Resources of Puerto Rico. We will be glad to provide help with the permit process.
