The Quetzal is one of the most beautiful bird species in the planet. Its size and color green and red (especially visible in the males) makes it a real gem. These birds inhabit the cloud forests of Costa Rica, however, they are easier to see in San Gerardo de Dota, and the entire Savegre River valley, where they are seen almost all year round.
San Gerardo de Dota is a pristine cloudforest valley located in the high mountains of the Cerro de la Muerte Mountain Range. The area is among the best for nature observation, especially birdwatching, but also adventure tours and ecotourism activities such as hiking, birding or cloud forest tours.
One of the newest national parks in Costa Rica that protects the upper Savegre River Valley as well as thousands of acres of tropical cloud forests and paramo.
