          The Wilson Botanical Garden and Las Cruces Biological Station include thousands of varieties of plants, miles of trails through different habitats, and great birding. Also really enjoyed the orchid building. The guest accommodations are excellent and the food is good.

          As a working academic research station, this may not be for everyone, but we loved it. Everything is modern and spotless. Rooms are plain but well appointed, each with a balcony overlooking the forest. Family-style food is solid and well-prepared, but don't expect gourmet. For...More
