Day 9 - 24th December 2023

Discover Quetzals & Hummingbirds

Quetzals and Hummingbirds Bird Watching - Photography Workshop in Savegre y Sauraceas - Night in San Gerardo 

Quetzal and Hummingbird Bird Watching - Photography Workshop in Savegre y Lauraceas - Night in San Gerardo 

One of the most iconic Costa Rican birds is the Quetzal, with its bright colors and elegant plumage. On this morning, we will take some time to discover and document this bird, while also learning about its interesting physiognomy.


In the afternoon, we will visit and photograph the Savegre River, which flows into the Pacific, and the Lauraceas Garden, which is home to many colorful types of flora. We will celebrate Christmas Eve with a special dinner in our hotel in San Gerardo.

Indeed, San Gerardo de Dota is known as one of the best places in the world to observe the Resplendent Quetzal, a striking and elusive bird that is revered throughout Central America for its colorful plumage and cultural significance.

In the morning, the group can embark on a guided tour of the area, led by an experienced birding guide who can help the group to spot and photograph the Quetzal and other bird species in the area.

The Quetzal is a challenging bird to photograph, as it often hides in the dense foliage of the cloud forest and can be difficult to spot. However, the guide can provide insights into the bird's habits and behavior, and help the group to position themselves for the best photo opportunities.

The group can also have the opportunity to capture images of other bird species that call the area home, such as the hummingbirds, trogons, and toucans.

In the afternoon, after the birding tour, the group can take some time to explore the beautiful and charming towns around San Gerardo de Dota. The Dota region is known for its picturesque villages, lush green valleys, and stunning mountain landscapes.
