Arrival in San Gerardo De Dota

The beautiful winding drive through the mountainous highlands sees the road plunge into a valley, where you’ll discover your lodge sitting at an altitude of 2500m. Your afternoon and evening are free to relax, and the peaceful surroundings make it difficult not to. The lodge has everything you need, with a restaurant and bar, along with some lovely outside areas where you can sit back and take in the sounds of the forest.

Nature Walk & Departure

After a restful night sleep away from the heat of the coast, you’ll meet your guide for your early morning walk as the forest begins to come to life. This is one of the best parts of the country for bird spotting, with Toucans, nightingales and many other colourful birds waiting to be discovered, including the famous Queztal. The forest floor is just as rich with wildlife, with frogs and reptiles going about their business, and waiting to be spotted by your guide.
