Talari Mountain Lodge is widely recognised among nature lovers -
"This rustic lodge in the country near San Isidro has excellent wildlife viewing
opportunities on the grounds. It is easy to observe seventy species in a morning of
birding there. An excellent place to see the Slaty Spinetail and Red-legged Honeycreeper.
Many birds come to the feeders. A good place to stay if visiting Los Cusingos."
Carrol L. Henderson in "Field Guide to the Wildlife of Costa Rica", University of Texas
Press, Austin USA, 2002.
There are other excellent birding opportunities in the area, including Los Cusingos
& Quebradas Biological Reserve - please see 'Activities'
for more details.
