About half a kilometer downhill from the restaurant (their trout soup is delicious!), and down a steep rocky path, there are 5 or 6 cabins. Now, the birding opportunities in the area are great. We had the Quetzal at 5 minutes walk from the cabin. But the lodging is rather primitive and way too expensive for what they offer. Nights are nippy in that area and except for a tiny hot air blower, there is nothing to break the cold. On top, there was no hot water in the shower, not even luke warm. Not in my cabin and not in my guides one. For what they ask per night, I had expected a little bit more of basic comfort.

ES una pena, que no nos avisaran por que tal vez solo, se desconecto un interruptor, por que todas tienen agua caliente, con mucho gusto, si nos hacen saber, de algun problema, estamos mas que dispuestos, a solucionarlo

We stopped in for lunch and spent several hours here enjoying the view and bird watching from the back deck. They were incredibly accommodating and, even though the outdoor area was not set up for dining (due to rain all morning), they helped us set up a dining spot when we asked about eating outdoors. They also added fresh fruit to the fruit feeders when we asked. We ordered two typicals which were served family style, in several serving bowls for sharing. The food was delicious and we enjoyed every bite. The feeders brought in a wide variety of bird species and a large number of acorn woodpeckers. The area was quiet and peaceful and offered a beautiful atmosphere for a lovely lunch.

Stopped for lunch at Miriam's after visiting Los Quetzales NP based on the recs from TA. Very glad we drove down the winding road to do so! We sat at the single outdoor table to watch birds while we ate. It was raining on and off, but that made it all the more magical as the clouds rolled in and out. Really high quality bird watching here—we saw 15+ species easily, including the gorgeous golden-browed chlorophonia. Ordered trout filet and chicken soup. The filet was delicious (and local), and the chicken soup was top notch. Big bone-in chicken pieces with a rich broth. Dessert (included) was home-made fruit in syrup. Don't know what the fruit was but it was not your grandma's canned peaches! Exotic flavors for sure.

Nice and clean cabins with a beautiful view. Delicious Food, very kind and supportive stuff, and a very smart tour guide (Alex) we highly recommend the Quetzal Tour with him in the mornings. Small market where you can buy some food and drinks. Liliana also prepared a package with some sweets and flowers in the room. Wi-Fi works next to the super market. Bring some warm clothes with you cause during night times it could get very could outside. Thanks to the whole family. We felt very comfortable:)
