Savegre Valley area
Located near Cerro de la Muerte (one of the highest areas in the country), Savegre Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Costa Rica. Stunning mountains surround this spectacular valley which is crossed by the magnificent Savegre River. The cloud forests of the area have been acclaimed by birdwatchers as the best place in the country to see the quetzal all year round (in other forests in Costa Rica the quetzal is seen only on a seasonal basis). Also, it is the home of more than 200 species of birds and boasts great hiking trails that lead you into the fascinating vegetation where you will find an amazing variety of epiphytes growing over the trees.
