Wear good shoes

Go with a guide as you'll get a lot more out of it. The terrain is quite difficult so where good shoes with ankle support. Lots of different birds here

We stayed for a week in April at Los Quetzals in cabin 8. Which is right inside the border for La Amistad International Park. The cloud forest scenery is truly stunning. Very prehistoric looking. We saw a total of 5 Quetzals, 3 females & 2 males all right at the cabin. We also had nightly visits from the cacomistles and... More

So cute. AT dusk go to Los quetzales Hotel and the staff will bring you, equipped with a bunch of bananas deep into the park to one of their cabanas and there you will open the bananas, reak them apart and if you are very quiet you will see the kinkajous or honey bears in spanish descend from the pines...

This is the real thing and a fabulous opportunity. We contacted a name through the website and a Naso guide (Adolfo) arranged the whole thing; an hour and half boat trip up and down a jungle river, three hour guided hike in park, hot lunch, and ride to and from boat . Exceptionally well organized. It was not super challenging... More

I was told they recovered it after I left and that they would mail it to me. After several follows up I never received the phone. Disappointing end to... More

It is located along the Talamanca mountain range which contains the highest peaks of Costa Rica and Panama: the Cerro Chirripó at 3,819 m, and the more accessible high peak, Cerro de la Muerte. It...
