The forests serve as a haven for a large number of mammals and countless species of insects, amphibians, amazing plants and colorful birds! San Gerardo is a real paradise for birders… More than 170 species of birds have been recorded in the area. This place is also known as one of the best places in the world to observe the resplendent Quetzal, a rare, beautiful and discreet bird.
