I owe it to a lot of people on Tripadvisor who provided me with useful and accurate information for this trip. So here is my trip report. I arrived in Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO) in Alajuela at past midnight. All was good except that my luggage did not arrive with me. Since i took a connecting flight from the US,... More

After backpacking through Central America we got upgraded to the nice cabin with a couch and full kitchen overlooking the cloud forest. Perfect spot if you want to visit the cloud forest and not be in a super touristy place. If you are looking for a cozy cabin close to good hikes and birding but not looking for a 5... More

Spent three nights here as a couple in May and loved it. We had been backpacking around Central America for 2.5 months and this was definitely one of our favorite places. Had one of the bigger cabins and it was very comfortable and had everything we needed. It isn't luxurious but a cozy private cabin in a peaceful area with... More

I unfortunately was not able to stay here, however, the service I received when considering a booking was exceptional. These are incredibly helpful, kind and honest people and I hope to stay sometime in future!

The past two years I have stayed at Quetzal Valley Cabins in San Gerardo de Dota. As a birdwatcher I could not ask for better accommodations. Outside my door I could easily find almost every highland specialty I wanted. Flame-colored Tanagers and Flame-throated Warblers, Large-footed, Yellow-thighed, and Peg-billed Finches, Black-billed and Ruddy-capped Nightingale Thrushes, and Sooty Robins are only a... More

We stayed at Quetzal Valley Cabins for two nights at the end of January. Everybody we met there, Miriam, Liliana, Alex and Nelson were very friendly and helpful, though communication was not always easy as our Spanish is weak/non-existent and though Liliana’s English is reasonable and Alex’s is very good, Miriam and Nelson speak no English. We had the cabin... More

My wife, son, and I spent two nights in Cabin 4 last week, and had a wonderful visit. Cabins are in beautiful location close to head of the valley, with amazing views toward both valley and surrounding peaks. Area is cool at night, but we expected that - Cabin 4 was comfortable & cozy with a small electric fireplace and... More

A great place to spend a long weekend; great view from every place, cosy cabins; nice and comfortable beds; great attention by the owners. Specially good of you are into hiking. It is a place that I will definitely be coming back to relax. If you have the chance, bring a telescope, on a clear night it should be great.... More

Spent 3 nights in a cabin for 6. Was very cosy, clean and totally private. Hot shower. Excellent bird watching right off the deck or on the nearby trail. Close to Miriam's restaurant for home cooked meals.

San Gerardo by itself is a pretty nice place. You get to watch different bird species and to watch the sky full of stars during the night. If you want to relax in a mountain paradise, this is the place! The cabins are really nice and cozy. Even if the place is cold, you will be nice and warm within... More
