This was our second stay at Paraiso Quetzal and it was even better than the first one. Jorge is the best guide for finding Quetzals that I have met and that includes 2 other lodges that we have stayed at in the nearby San Gerardo...More
This lodge has beautiful birds around and they will take you to see quetzals in the wild. They radio each other to see where they are, they don’t disturb them, everyone has to be quiet and no flash allowed and you see the magnificent birds!
We visited Paraíso Quetzal to do some hiking and bird watching. The staff were really nice and helpful. The food was very good and the cabins nice a clean. We would highly recommend that you stop for a visit here if you are in Costa...More
I can not say much about staying at the hotel because I didn't spend the night, but from what I could see the rooms seem to have a nice view and I can imagine the cool weather makes it a very soothing and relaxing/ romantic...More
We arrived for two nights, included was a Quetzal trip in the early morning. We liked our two little houses and the main house with a wonderful fire. It was pretty cold outside. The restaurant was good but the service was a bit slow. And...More

Distancia de Cartago no es mucho menos de 2 horas en coche.
La mejor época para ver Quetzales es en marzo y abril durante sus estaciones de cría.

Happy New Year to you as well. We were four adults traveling ages 48 to 66 and did not experience any headaches during our 2 day stay. We did feel the altitude when walking uphill from the cabins to the lodge feeling slightly more winded then normal but recovered in seconds and was not a big deal at all. We also live close to sea level and researched the topic prior to booking our stay. Enjoy you time there, it is an amazing place particularly for children. It can be quite cool up there, be sure to bring warm clothes.

Our cottage was wonderful, but steep down the hill. We travelled up and down only by 4WD car. About the crib I don't know. About Opal and the access I think I do know. If you are a good hiker the addition of a one year old will not be a problem or matter. It might be more about the grandpa...;-). A stroller will not work. I do too agree with the advice to get a cottage close to the main building. This is a family operated place and I am sure they do everything to make you feel comfortable.
