Pros - warm, has hot water, ok for a night. Good breakfast and supper. Cons - no ATM nearby so the staff should say before supper and breakfast how much it will cost. We were shocked to find breakfast not included. We were bothered by other tourists who talked and smoked and ruined our experience in the morning. The family... More

After many years of staying in the area and going to the Biotopo to see quetzales, and having never seen a d**n quetzal, we gave this a try. The owner told us the property, just north of the Biotopo, had been in his family for generations as a retreat and when he retired, he decided to create a perfect habitat... More

My husband and I decided to stay a night at Ranchito del Quetzal after we read all the great reviews about how easy it was to see the quetzal bird there. We arrived after a very long drive from Flores and were extremely exhausted and hungry! We were greeted very warmly by the family and in no time were sitting... More

This is a small operation - so don't expect polished floors...or any carpet...but I went there with my 4 children and we loved it. It was very basic - but just enough to feel comfortable. And the food was very affordable. We were there to see the Quetzals. My son saw one but the rest of us didn't. I plan... More

Fantastic little place. Stop by for an early breakfast meal or come early afternoon and stay the night. Owners have lots of fruit trees on the property where quetzals come to eat. Rooms are basic, but tidy. Staff is very friendly and the food (especially breakfast) is excellent! Highly recommend if you are on the Quetzal hunt.

I stayed here a night to see the Quetzal bird, on of the most beautiful birds of the world (in my opinion), and I was highly rewarded, when they were flying around and feeding at 6.30 am. It is said to be one of the most reliable places to see these birds. There are several rooms and cabins, check them... More

This small Ecolodge in the middle of the Quetzal rainforest is really a gem. You can select from a few different bungalows, all at very affordable prices. The bungalows are very simple, nothing fancy, but suited well to the location. Most importantly, the family who run this lodge are the sweetest! Their school-age daughter brought us a tortilla upon arrival,... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Not because of the ammenities (which are quite limited) but because of the special one-to-one attention you receive at a small family run hostel. Our rooms were a good size with private toilet/shower. We had a problem with the hot water, but this was fixed when asked. The room isn't the cleanist and I... More
