Named for one of the most spectacular birds in Central America.
Los Quetzales Lodge has four cabanas tucked into the forest at 6,800 feet above sea level.
It is a very blumpy 20 minute ride by four wheel drive from Guadalupe.
When we arrived it was raining so hard we could hardly see out the windows of the van.
After we arrived we still had a nice little climb up to our cabana.
The cabanas are spacious, wood burning stove, hot water showers, but no electricity
There is a lady that will come in of an evening and cook you some fresh fish for dinner.
Unique Qualities: The birds will keep you entertained for hours.
Huge Violet Saberwings, Magnificent Hummingbirds, and White-throated Mountain gems are easily viewed at the feeders and flowers.
We also saw the beautiful Replendant Quetzal in the trees just a few feet away from our balcony. That is what we had came here hoping to see.

We were out on the road in front of the hotel, looking for birds, when I spotted a big ball of fur in a tree. Finally it moved and to my surprise it was a three-toed sloth. I was so excited. I went back and checked on it several times that day. It moved some but very slowly.

The food is good. The owner grows her own organic vegetables and herbs.
