Not far from San Jose, yet not as highly visited as other cloudforest areas, you can have a more private and less touristy experience here. Trogon Lodge is a great nature lodge.
Located in San Gerardo de Dota, near Cerro de la Muerte, Costa Rica's highest peak. The drive takes approximately 2 hours from San Josť heading southeast in the Pan-American highway. As one drives up, marvelous views appears before your eyes, carrot & potato plantations, the country side, and on a clear day, general overviews of the Cartago Province and Valley.Amidst dazzling flowers, showing amazing shades of colors and where centennial oak trees show their impressive roots sits Trogon Lodge, at an altitude of 7000 ft above sea level, surrounded by the unspoiled ecology of the area.
