Sueños del Bosque Lodge
San Gerardo de Dota, Costa Rica
Family-run Sueños del Bosque Lodge, just minutes from Los Quetzales National Park, provides a front-row view on the Costa Rican cloud forest’s colorful flora, waterfalls and abundant wildlife. Ten cypress-wood cabins fronting a small lake embody the rustic mountain ambience of the region, with knotty-paneled interiors, exposed wood beams and balconies overlooking the serene environs. Each is furnished with two double beds, a separate sitting area and large tiled en suite bathroom with shower. Amenities include Wi-Fi and cable TV. The lodge grounds include groves of avocado and other fruit trees, and a 250-foot suspension bridge for access into the higher reaches of the forest. From our cozy lodge base, we have easy access into the Talmanca Mountains, replete with flowers and birds.
