Trogon Lodge is located in the bird watching paradise of San Gerardo de Dota, an area of the cloud forest home to hundreds of different species. Situated just 2 hours southeast of San Jose, tiny San Gerardo de Dota is reached via a narrow, twisting mountain road that leads to the valley floor of the Savegre Valley. Surrounded by mountains and forest, this pleasant lodge is surrounded by flower filled gardens and trees. A series of wooden bungalows – each with two separate rooms, a shared verandah and a distinctive green roof – cascades down the hillside overlooking the river and forest, connected by pathways. Accommodation is simple but comfortable – its 23 rooms all have en suite bathroom, hot water heating for chilly nights. The restaurant serves delicious hearty meals – you can even catch a trout in the pond and have it prepared for dinner. Various bird watching tours and walking tours are available (at an additional cost) on a daily basis lead by in-house naturalist guides.
