This place is about as close to Heaven as you can get on Earth. A trout filled chrystal clear river runs through the village and there are small hotels and lodges dotting the banks. The weather here is very cool at night (can get in the 30's) and this is the home of the delightful Quetzal bird. You can hire a local guide to find one living in the wild. They feed on miniature avacodo's and this is one of two places on earth where these trees and birds live. This is a very laid Back place with several restaurants, fishing, birdwatching, and horseback riding. Beware the road can be dangerous at night as the clouds lower so plan your drive to San Gerardo de Dota earlier in the day.
