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 …
... wir San José umfahren. Carthago befindet sich auf einer Höhe von etwa 1432 m über Meer am Fuße des Vulkans Irazú. Die Bevölkerung zählt 140'000 Einwohner. Den momentan rauchenden Vulkan Turrialba sehen wir leider nicht, der hüllt sich in Wolken. Weiter gehts auf der Panamericana Richtung Süden über den Pass Cerro de la Muerte. Der heisst so, weil Männer früher zu Fuss das Gemüse und Früchte von San Isidro de El ...
... and two TV epsiodes is a new personal record btw) I managed to get some sleep on the flight to Costa Rica and when I arrived this morning just about made it to the bed before collapsing. The family I´m staying with are really nice and have people from Europe to stay regularly. It was set up by the company from which I will be getting my intensive Spanish course over the next two weeks. This consists of three hours ...
... and hopeful. We walked over at 6am on the dot. Spoke to a guy who we had talked to the day before and still no trace of the passports. He asked us to return at 8am when he could call the other office to ask what bus they were on. Needless to say, we were very discouraged at that point thinking we'd have to go back to the capital and go to the U.S. Embassy for new passports. Great.

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.
