Sitting at the base of the spectacular Talamanca mountain range in south central Costa Rica, the rural town of San Gerardo de Dota rests surrounded by misty cloud forests. The high altitude provides cooler temperatures with an abundance of light rain, creating a lush green highland forest. Perfectly placed next to Los Quetzales National Park, the year-round home of the Resplendant Quetzal, this charming community offers unique birding and hiking opportunities. Horseback riding has been the prime means of transportation until recently and guided horseback tours are a great way to explore this rugged cloud forest terrain. Coffee grows well here and might make a good gift to take home. San Gerardo de Dota is located about 2 hours south of the capital city, San Jose.
