We stayed 2 nights at the lodge with Tere, Pablo and their son Ignacio. We had a lovely time, the place is amazing ! It's in the middle of the nature in a quiet place. The view is beautiful ! Tere is a great cook. The vibe is cosy and familial, we felt like at home during our stay. Everything is very clean, the food is fresh and covid mesures are respected. To see all the hummingbirds in the garden was really amazing !
My family of 3 (2 adults + 1 teenager) stayed 4 days at the lodge and enjoyed every moment. Pablo and Tere are very welcoming and made us feel at home. They provide an outstanding service and help you get the most out of your trip, both at the lodge as well as in the nearby area. The lodge is clean, rustic, homely and has a spectacular view, both during the day and night. The food they serve is delicious, healthy and well balanced. The Bird watching experience is out of this world, with 20+ Hummingbird species to admire, plus other bird species from the area such as Tanagers and Motmots. During the day we made active hikes with breathtaking views and drove to nearby Santa Maria town to buy exceptional coffee. All in all, Quinta Galeon Lodge is a wonderful place, in a beautiful area, ran by lovely people. We will certainly return to reconnect with nature.…
As last stop of our holiday in Costa Rica we arrived at this special place. It is not a typical place for birders rather a place for fotographers that want a picture of one of the hummingbird spieces enjoying life around the lodge. There are hummingbirds all over the place we counted more then 20 different spieces during our stay. The food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) were great, prepared with care and really of high class. Nice was also the arrangement of a guide that could show us the quetzal( hit rate 90+percent) High quality justified the pretty high prices so price/quality was in balance. The owners are passioned about their product and Pablo really will do everything to please the guests and convince them to listen to the interesting presentation on the life of hummingbirds. The motto " come as a guest, leave as a friend" ensures you're supported in a very good way.…
An amazing oasis for hummingbird viewing and photography. Pablo and Tere are wonderful hosts and do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are all unique, clean, and quiet. I visited with some friends and we had an amazing 5 day visit. Situated at a higher elevation the temperatures in February were pleasant. A beautiful place to relax and enjoy nature. In addition to hummingbirds, it is a very short drive to view and photograph the Resplendent Quetzal, a magnificent bird. With a covered patio you can comfortably view and photograph the hummingbirds in any weather. I believe we photographed 12 species and saw several others. I highly recommend a visit to this amazing and unique lodge.
Pablo and Tere do a great job of taking care of you, the food is wonderful and the birds are fantastic. The property has a great view as well. I look forward to going back there. It's the best food I have had in Costa Rica!
Our bird photo trip stopped twice at Quinta Galeon. Terri and Pablo were gracious hosts and the food was excellent. The view is special and the hummingbirds are plentiful. Whether you are a birder or just someone looking to have some peace and quiet in Costa Rica, this is a place to consider.
This was the perfect setup for Humming bird photography. Many species and a lot of them. Our hosts went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. The property is beautiful. Rooms were very nice. Food was excellent and they met my dietary restrictions as well. Perfect hosts! I will definitely be returning.
I was part of a group who visited for lunch and bird watching in November! The Quinta Galeon Lodge is in an extremely beautiful area with incredible views. From the time we arrived there were birds to see everywhere, but the hummingbirds were simply amazing! The lodge has lots feeders set up all around the lodge, and no matter where you were you were able to watch, photograph and enjoy thousands of different hummingbirds, woodpeckers, tanagers, etc. It was simply amazing! Our lunch was so, so good too and the staff very nice and accommodating! I hope to return to experience this unique place again soon. If you love to watch or photograph birds, this is the place to be!
My wife and I were very splendidly surprised to stay for 3 nights for hummingbird photography. We felt right at home after a few minutes of chatting with Pablo and Teresita, who were excellent hosts. Food was unmatched ,personally prepared. Pablo personally attended to our photo setup needs. We were not for want of anything. it is not often that we have a chat with the hosts ,during or after dinner daily !! We were able to obtain what we came to photograph and even left with some souvenirs. Having travelled 7 continents & almost 100 countries there is non more warm and friendly than here. Thank you & sorry for the late post.
Very good location of the Lodge and excellent if you are looking to see and photograph Humming Birds. There are more than 11 species of humming birds on any day. The rooms were also good and so is the food.
