Property description

The Unicorn lodge is nestled among ancient oaks along side the pristine Savegre River in the cloud forest of San Gerardo de Dota. Our area is famous for its dense concentration of the Resplendent Quetzal which is sought after by bird watchers from all over the world. We have had breakfast on our front deck with these magnificent creatures several times. There are several high end eco-resorts in our magical valley, but we have the only fully equipped homes in the area. We have an additional villa(Dreamwater Villa) on the property as well.

The lodge has 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, and an sleep 4-6 comfortably. The Savegre River is just off the front deck and was called 'the cleanest river in Central America' by National Geographic. We are located just 75 miles from the airport in San Jose or about a 2 hour drive

Location

Located in the pristine cloud forest of San Gerardo de Dota.....this area is often called the best kept secret in all of Costa Rica. One of the few places on the planet to view the Resplendent Quetzal, San Gerardo de Dota is truly a must see on your visit to this amazing country.

San Gerardo de Dota is located off Highway 2, about 2-3 hours from San Jose and 2 hours from Dominical. Like everywhere in Costa Rica, signage is not the best; however, there is a small sign at the turnoff. It helps to keep a lookout for kilometer markers. San Gerardo de Dota is located at kilometer 80.

Once you turn off Highway 2, you’ll descend into the valley for about 15 minutes, maneuvering down several steep switchbacks before arriving at the village. Just one main road runs through town so there’s little chance of getting lost.

Leave early in the day: Driving after dark on Highway 2 is not recommended. The road is windy and steep and visibility can be very limited when it rains or the cloud cover increases.

Why the Owner Chose Cartago, Costa Rica:
The valley in San Gerardo de Dota is one of Costa Rica's best kept secrets. It is one of the most pristine environments anywhere on the planet. The area is world renown for its birdwatching, but offers amazing waterfalls and ancient forests nestled into an unspoiled cloud forest at 7500 ft elevation.
