When you wake up at our mountain retreat, you are greeted by the calls of howler monkeys. Trails at your doorstep lead you in a few short minutes into some of the most spectacular upland forests remaining in Central America. At 1900 meters the site is a prime nesting area for Resplendent Quetzals and Three Wattled Bellbirds.
Black Guan, Mountain Lion, and White-Faced Capuchin all can be found in a mosaic of habitats from open pastures to ancient cloud forests draped with a cornucopia of epiphytes. Rich riparian areas from forest seeps to large streams cut through an elevation range from 1500m – 2600m.
The Los Pozos Hotsprings are located 2km from the homestead and are frequented by guests who enjoy soaking after a long hike.
View the location on Google Earth (8°53'03.11N,
82° 41'04.80"W) and notice the vast area to the north, part of La Amistad National Park, the largest tract of protected virgin upland forest remaining in Central America.
