El Toucanet Lodge
Lonely Planet review
A great place to spend the night is at El Toucanet Lodge a lovely country lodge that is perched at 1850m and offers seven rustic hardwood cabins with wonderful views of Valle de Dota. The valley and the surrounding cloud forest are excellent for bird-watching and co-owner Gary leads daily tours – fruit birds are commonly sighted, as well as the resplendent quetzal and the namesake toucanet. The Flintstones-style hot tub is an excellent place to recover from the day’s activities. To reach the lodge, drive east from Santa María or turn off the Interamericana at Km 58.
