It is a functional place which becomes both a home and a study station for participants. Participants sleep on comfortable canvas cots placed either inside of the field station or outside on the sandy beach, next to the water and under the stars. From the station porches you will have an unparalleled view of the many islands in the bay. Glorious sunrises will softly awaken you. The islands in the bay are protected under Mexican law, and the college operates in them with the permission of the regional office of the ministry of the environment
