Trogon Lodge

Another surprise while traveling to Los Santos Forest Reserve was this female sloth crossing the road, while not exciting for my first video, this was a curious sight:


Our destination was down about three miles, deep in a lush, green valley. Trogon Lodge was very beautiful with trails leading to waterfalls, rare birds, and brilliant flora and fauna. The grounds themselves encouraged a serene, relaxed environment like a taste of paradise!


We take a short hike in the late afternoon to orient ourselves to the surroundings.

  
  
The next morning we set out with a guide for some bird watching. We mostly discovered the local variety of hummingbirds, toucanetts and woodpeckers but the Quetzals , which is the national bird, alluded us until the following morning. Our guide Grayvan had a high-powered telescope that allowed us to get some nice shots.

    I’m remembering our trip to CR now and the extraordinary array of large and tiny brilliantly colored hummingbirds and one lone toucan sited as well. Enjoying your blog!
