San Gerardo de Dota

Situated high on Cerro de la Muerte, it is among the best places for spotting the Quetzal and other endemic species that inhabit its cloud forests. San Gerardo de Dota is located half way between Cartago City ( Eastern Central Vallery ) and San Isidro de Perez Zeledon, the main gateway into the South Pacific region. The Valley is located between 2400 and 3000 meters above sea level. It is currently within the Los Quetzales National Park. Dense tropical cloud forests are everywhere. Birding is the main activity. Especially interesting are the Quetzal or Paradise Bird and other, like some species of Hummingbirds. The Lodges in the area offer cozy accommodations, great dining, friendly staff and personalized service.
