Set in the enchanting cloud forests of San Gerardo de Dota, Suria Mountain Hotel provides a unique ecolodge experience. The lodge specializes in hosting birdwatchers that come to see the many species of highland birds that inhabit Los Quetzales National Park. Lodge amenities include a restaurant, bar, nature trails, and internet access.
San Gerardo de Dota is well off of the beaten tourist path. This remote mountainous area is 7,000 feet in elevation, making the climate cool and damp. It is the cloud forest after all!
Birdwatching is not only fantastic in Los Quetzales National Park, but also the entire area. Resplendent Quetzals are abundant, as are Hummingbirds, Trogons, and many other rare and exotic species. Tours depart daily from the lodge with naturalist guides that know where to find the elusive birds. Of course, you can just walk the grounds of the lodge's ten acres property in search of birds and other wildlife.
Suria Lodge provides a peaceful ambiance. The grounds are well-maintained, surrounded by cloud forest, creeks, and farms. The restaurant serves typical Costa Rican foods and specialty dishes such as trout. Tropical drinks are served at the lodge's bar, or just enjoy a cup of fresh brewed Costa Rican coffee.
Rooms are basic but clean, cozy, and tastefully decorated with wooden furnishings. Each offers comfortable beds and private bathrooms with hot water showers; all that one would expect from a rustic mountain ecolodge. Check the Amenities Section for a complete list of what is in each room.
