Travel Today Was Not For The Faint Of Heart

A travel blog entry by marty387


As orientation was at 7:45 am, most of our group met for the first time at breakfast at 7 am. The group consisted of 16, 7 couples plus two women. From the onset everyone was friendly and eager to get going.

Our transportation was a 22 seat bus, with room for luggage on the roof. By 9:15 am we were on our way and heading south out of …

It's Time To Put On Our Hiking Boots

A travel blog entry by marty387


At 5:30 am I was in the bathroom trying desperately running the water so it would eventually turn hot so I could shave and shower. The bathroom mirror was not designed for someone that is 6' tall. It wasn't much fun shaving hunched over. As for the shower, the hotel only provides liquid soap and shampoo from a dispenser. I don't have a problem with …

Quetzal valley

A travel blog entry by bargreenwood


I am sorry to leave this magical place in the rainforest, although the humidity it not something I shall miss, but strange to say I coped remarkably well with the heat.We retraced our steps to Dominical then started climbing up to San Isidro which is the largest town in the area, certainly the largest we had seen since San Jose. We had a good break …

Waterval en quetzal

A travel blog entry by winkitinki


Was gisteren Sébas niet lekker, afgelopen nacht was de beurt aan Debbie. Hevige buikkramp heeft haar geruime tijd op het toilet laten bivakkeren. De details laten we maar achterwege....... Vanochtend ging het redelijk en besloten we na het ontbijt een bezoek te brengen aan de waterval van 8 meter hoogte die zo'n 6 km van ons huisje afligt. Het …

Day 58- Birds birds, and a few more birds

A travel blog entry by millhousers


Stumbling into the Rio Savegre Valley was kind of like discovering Shangri-La.

We spontaneously decided to visit this area because there was a slim chance of spotting the beautiful Resplendent Quetzal (rhymes with pretzel). The resplendent quetzal is a member of the trogon family and the national bird of Guatemala. They are as beautiful …

    We came here on a bit of a whim--we're not serious birdwatchers, which is the target audience, and we have two kids under 4--but wound up loving it. We stayed in their more budget-mnded accommodations, which are perfectly fine and very clean, but there are some more upscale-looking cabanas available as well. The staff here is extremely friendly and helpful, even by Costa Rican standards, and really made our family feel welcome. The restaurant is perhaps a little expensive for lunch (about typical for dinner), but the food is good and the buffet approach works well for a quick bite before heading back out. The grounds are lovely and attract many birds from the surrounding Parque Nacional De Los Quetzales. The lodge has its own private reserve with hiking trails through the forest. You can see an amazing variety of birds without ever leaving the property. If you have any interest in birds at all, this is a great, relaxing place to visit.
