Description

The always elusive Resplendent Quetzal (Pharomachrus mocinno) spends most of his life migrating looking for his favorite meal – wild avocados fruits – among other species. On our highland birding and coffee expedition, we will meet with a local expert who knows when and where the Quetzals are any time of the year. As we explore Los Quetzales National Park – one can see the ways the surrounding villages have respected this magnificent place.

Our guides will pick you up from your accommodation at 4:00 am, our first stop will be San Isidro del General (one and half hour drive away) to drink a quick coffee and have a light snack. Our day starts bright and early as the best time to reach Los Quetzales National Park is before 7:00 am. We want you to have the best opportunities to observe and photograph this unique, beautiful bird. Once we had accomplished our mission we will drive or walk back to Mirador los Quetzales Sanctuary for more birding and some hummingbird feeders action.

Before we start our journey back to sea level, we will continue with the second half of your highlands adventure. We will drive to the well known Costa Rican coffee town of Santa Maria de Dota, where we will have pre arrange a unique coffee experience for you, designed specifically as an opportunity to navigate into the secrets of coffee and discover new sensations in a specialized tasting of COOPEDOTA coffees. Learning to identify the characteristics that make a coffee … a world class coffee, as well as the benefits and qualities that each batch has during the cupping process.
