With more than 900 different species of birds, spread over 27% of protected land, visiting Costa Rica will be a birdwatchers paradise. Visit the cloud forest area of The Savegre Valley (also known, Los Quetzales National Park or San Gerardo de Dota) for its crisp mountain air and great opportunities to spot the Resplendant Quetzal, a colourful rare bird which was once considered divine by ancient civilisations. Located in Costa Rica's Central Highlands, the region is a haven for bird watchers and hikers alike.

Please note, the Savegre Valley can get quite cool in January through March and rain can even occur in the dry season.
