Los Quetzales Lodge and Spa is a rustic, somewhat run-down cross between a hotel and a hostel. If you come expecting luxury, you will be disappointed. That being said, it had a certain charm and a lot of character and would be a great place to come with a large group of nature lovers. Our room was clean and comfortable but very basic, (the bathtub, however, was pretty awful, with a big patched hole- see photo). I had a massage in the spa which was inexpensive and good, (though it was a bit of a shock to step from behind the curtain and encounter the next waiting guest; each of us clothed only in a towel!) What made Los Quetzales special was the cloud rainforest hike which is included with the price of the room. We were the only guests on the hike, and were taken by tractor up a very muddy path into the rainforest. Los Quetzales has some spectacular cabins built up in this rainforest; they would be a perfect place to stay if you are into bird watching or hiking. We quickly found out why we were given rubber boots for the hike- it was extremely muddy and rocky. But what a hike! We took the easier of the two hikes up to the waterfall, and it was breathtaking. We don't speak Spanish and our guide spoke little English, but he was still able to communicate several interesting things about what we were seeing. The highlight, however, is when he took us to one of the cabins and gave us a hummingbird feeder to hold. Instantly we were surrounded by at least a dozen lovely hummingbirds, flitting around our heads and through our arms and surrounding the feeder. Giant iridescent purple hummingbirds were part of the mix. It was incredibly magical- a truly once in a lifetime experience.
