"Parque Internacional La Amistad" Guadalupe by kyoub

Guadalupe Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 23 photos


Tucked away in a highland cloud forest, Los Quetzales Preserve is ideal for those longing to retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern living. At 6800 feet above sea level (over 2,060 meters), the Preserve lies inside the primary rainforests of Volcan Baru National park, which was established in 1976. The Volcan Baru Park is adjacent to the one million acre Parque Internacional La Amistad, which straddles Costa Rica and Panama.

    Wow Kay, what a great bird-watching vacation, with great sightings of amazing Quetzals, Violet Sabrewings & White-throated Mountain Gems!! Your whole experience reminded me of Sue & my adventures in Royal Natal NP in South Africa.

    I like how the cabins look somewhat like treehouses since they're nestled in the leafy landscape. You must have been in bird heaven here, Kay!

    I have to go back to Panama one day. Seeing your pics I notice that a one day excursion from a cruiser wasn't enough to see the nature beyond the usual touristic highlights.

    I love this page, ..dont really bother about those birds, and dirty cups ..lol...I think they could cope with any condition, as long that it is food. Lovely narratives.
