The lodge is situated in the green forest at an altitude of over 2000 m. A visit to San Gerardo de Dota perfectly describes the outward or return journey from the South or Panama to Santa Ana.
San Gerardo de Dota is known for the numerous reserves of the Quetzal in the surrounding woods. Guided tours are arranged by the lodge, and you will get nearly certainty to see and hear them.
The Quetzal belongs to the family of trogons, therefore the name of the lodge.
