About this activity
San Gerardo de Dota lies within the valley of the Savegre River located in the Talamanca Mountains. This area is a favorite amongst bird watchers as the surrounding cloud forest and crisp mountain air combine to create prime habitat for many species of birds.

San Gerardo de Dota besides being inside the beautiful Los Quetzales National Park, is near Dominical beach, Tapantí-Macizo de la Muerte National Park and Cerro Chirripó. You can be picked-up at any of this places.

Morning birdsong heralds the start of an unforgettable experience in the cloud forest. During breakfast the hummingbirds give you an indication of what your excursion will be like.

San Gerardo is also a paradise for birdwatchers as it has more than 170 bird species, including some of the most rare and endangered bird species. This area is covered with virgin cloudforest and belongs to the endemic rich Talamanca mountain chain. This is one of the best places of the world to spot the spectacular resplendent Quetzal, a highlight for many on a Costa Rica birding tours.
