Welcome to Biotopo del Quetzal
You need a fair bit of luck to see a quetzal, as they're rare and shy, though you have the best chance of seeing them from March to June. Even so, it's well worth stopping to explore and enjoy this lush high-altitude cloud-forest ecosystem, which is the quetzal's natural habitat. Early morning or early evening are the best times to watch out for them – they're actually more prevalent around the grounds of the nearby hotels.
The reserve has a visitors center, a little shop for drinks and snacks, and a camping and BBQ area. The ruling on camping changes from time to time. Check by contacting Cecon, which administers this and other biotopes.
