#42 of 270 Speciality lodging in Province of San Jose
The Serrano Family has been the owner of the Mirador de Quetzales Lodge in the Cloud Forest since the early 90s … They have owned the land, where the Mirador de Quetzales Lodge is, since 1948 and now this is the result of their life process, a dream made true The story the family and Mirador de Quetzales Lodge goes back to those days when Eddy Serrano married young and beautiful Leonor. They were young, he was bold and full of dreams. Like in any romantic novel Eddy was a tall, strong and handsome young man. And she was petite and sweet. They got married and started living in between two volcanoes: The Turrialba and the Irazu Volcanoes… Fertile soils, chilly and foggy areas… Highlands. However, in those days the Irazu Volcano was starting to wake up after a long dormant period. The rumbling of the volcano sounded like an underground road with hundreds of oxcarts passing through it. And Leonor started to feel very afraid, day after day. It was an isolated, chilly and noisy trembl

We just returned from a trip to Costa Rica and an overnight in Mirador de Quetzalas. If you are looking to find the Quetzal this is absolutely the place to visit. Jason and his family run the resort and Jason serves as guide/Quetzal spotter. We were quite fortunate to spot several Quetzal including a group of about four males and two females. We ran around the jungle following them as they flew from tree to tree. The accommodations are basic and being at such a high elevation it is quite cold. Dress warmly for the evening as there is no heat in the rooms. Heating bottles are supplied. Dinner was very good, with a fantastic pumpkin soup. You are up early to search for these elusive birds and then return for a hearty and excellent breakfast. We only stayed overnight and did not explore the area other than to find the Quetzal - mission accomplished. Great job by Jason and everyone at Mirador.

The view from this hotel is beautiful with glorious sunsets. Lots of Quetzales nest nearby. The hotel consists of cabins which face the view. There is a mirador shelter. Saw lots of quetzales and the guide was very good. Cabins are basic but comfortable, clean with no heating but lots of blankets and hot water bottles. Food is reasonable.

Situated at a certain altitude, nights here are cold, and there are no heating in huts, which are basic. Food was great and bird guiding excellent; the owner is probably the best bird guidd you can get, taking you both to the forests and to the peaks for high altitude specialities - and he knows the quetzals areas better than other.

We stayed here for a night. The place is good for sighting resplendent quetzal though you can’t see them around the lodge . The lodge is in a mountain range at 2700 meters and was very cold.It was impossible to beat the cold despite provided with good clothing. Cabins are small but adequate, rooms clean and well maintained. Bathroom small but clean and provided hot water for bath but the wash basins dont have hot water. The wooden cabins were perhaps recently wax polished and were slippery at places.Cabins have good lighting and charging points.Food is good and service of staff appreciable. The view of mountains from the lodge is breathtaking. For quetzal you have to go with a guide in early morning to a different farm/ valley and it’s a bit difficult trekking. We saw quetzal and could take reasonable photos. The lodge has hummingbird feeders and one can see them in plenty

Simple cabins with good bed, tiny baths, very clean, no heat. But in an incomparable location high on the mountain. Food prepared by the lodge kitchen was quite good. Due to the altitude, while in the valley the temps were in the 80s, there was frost on the grass when we set out on our bird walk. We were happy to see unusual birds, though, especially the resplendent quetzal. If you visit this place, be prepared for the chill. And breathtaking views.
