  • We went here to see Quetzals but didn't actually see any. I don't think the tour groups did either. We were first to arrive, which is important because weather can change in an instant. Although we saw no quetzals, this place should still be on your list. These forests are primordial, with lots of old growth trees and beautiful flora. Even handicapped or elderly people can enjoy these trails because they are easy to navigate and the main trail is paved. There is some up and down though. We did see lots of other birds.

  • Wonderful and peaceful place ! But you need a 4x4 car to get there to be sure you don't get stuck if rain hard... just an advice.
