San Gerardo de Dota is unlike any other place in Costa Rica – a bucolic mountain village run through by a clear, rushing river and surrounded by forested hills that more resemble the alps than the tropics. It's set deep within a mountain valley; the air is crisp and fresh, and chilly at night, and the orchard-lined Savegre basin hosts numerous high-altitude bird species, including the eye-catching and beloved resplendent quetzal, that draw birdwatchers from around the world.
