We stayed for a weekend in september... and it was amazing! The rustic cabana was fully equipped and it was much more comfortable than we expected. We loved to ignite the iron stove to warm up the place, thankfully the cabana had a vast stockpile of dry wood so we didn't had problem starting and keeping alive the fire. The... More

San Gerardo de Dota is THE PLACE if yo want to see those elusive Quetzals in Costa Rica, especially if you are arriving in off season when the mating is over. I tried my best to see them in Monteverde in July and only managed to see a sleeping female one in the night, despite having two very experienced guides... More

Loved the rustic but confortable cabins. Good location. Nice view. Quiet since it is not too close to the mail road. Nice trails for walks. There are eating establishments close by if you do not wish to cook. I recommend this place.

We stayed in San Gerardo de Dota for one night as part of a larger trip, and it was our only time in the Cloud Forest. Our cabin had a great view of the mountains and foliage. The cabins are wooden, inside and out. They have private bathrooms, a coffee maker, and a space heater (it does get quite cold... More

We visited this peaceful place a few days ago and enjoyed it's natural beauty and quiet surroundings. The cabins where comfortable and the staff was friendly. The temperature is cold at night, but warm during the day.

Most foreign tourists come to this area of cloud forest to be thrilled by the improbably marvelous collection of exotic birds that thrive in these cool mountains. Our cabin (number 4) had a superb view of the whole valley and the trees and shrubs below our balcony was a little bird paradise. The cabins are beautifully designed with all the... More

We booked with Quetzal valley cabins on short notice and were very well taken care. From lifts from our good hearted driver Nelso being arranged for us once we got off the bus on the side of the highway to meeting our needs for information, the Quetzal valley cabins team were on point. The cabins themselves were clean, cute and... More

I stayed for a night with my girlfriend, my brother and his wife and two more little siblings. The cabins ate completely comfortable and cozy. They are just to the side of the main road, so that makes them easily accessible. There's a path on the property which takes people to a beautiful river, where we had fun fishing trouts,... More

We really enjoyed our stay here! The welcome was warm and we received birding tips right away. And they paid off: we saw the Quetzal and Emerald Toucanets. The surroundings are gorgeous. We had a beautiful view over the valley. Many birds, every day a flock of flycatchers who were amusing to watch. The lodge is basic, but offers all... More

My wife and I arrived JAN 27 and we were jaw dropped with the views of the gorgeous cloud forest, the mountains and mist floating through the valleys. The private transfer through Biotrans (CRTTE) took us about two and a half hours to drive up along the interamericana highway to get to San Gerardo De Dota from Alajuela. When we... More
