As one drives up, marvelous views appear before your eyes, carrot & potato plantations, the countryside, and on a clear day, scenic views of the Province of Cartago and Valley.
At an altitude of 7,000 feet above sea level (2200 meters) and surrounded by the unspoiled ecology of the area, Trogon Lodge sits amidst dazzling flowers, showing amazing shades of colors and where centennial oak trees show their impressive roots.
The song of the Resplendent Quetzal in its magical fly, is a sample of the exuberant vegetation that lives in the area. A collage of green trees and mountains; a peaceful setting enhanced by the sounds of the river in its endless travel through the rocks, lets you feel nature and see it come alive, in a place where the mist of the scenery sets the mood for those searching to get away from it all.
San Gerardo de Dota is a small community of about 220 people, and part of the area known as “Los Santos” (The Saints, in English), towns named after the name of a Saint (just like Santa Maria, San Pablo de Leon Cortes, and others).
It is part of the Los Santos Forest Reserve, a biological corridor for a great array of wildlife, some of which are in danger of extinction. Only 9 km away from San Gerardo is Los Quetzales National Park.
