Quetzal Watching Tour

Visiting San Gerardo de Dota and the surrounding areas may be the best choice you can make to escape in search of birds. This lovely and stress-free place offers plenty of birding spots, where you will definitively delight yourself in its nice weather, kind people, and exuberant forests. We depart very early in order to take advantage of the morning hours. This is a long but pleasant journey, where you can witness the change in both vegetation and climate while we aproach the area. Once in Quetzal’s Paradise, we are going to use the trails to look for the Mighty Quetzal and some other species, such us Fiery-throated, Volcano and Magnificent Hummingbird. After lunch, we head for the  community of San Gerardo de Dota, a nice village along the Savegre River, where we will spend the rest of the day birding. Finally, you will return to the hotel hoping to come back at some point in the future.
