About The Toucanet Lodge
25 years ago he had a dream, the dream of sharing the Copey de Dota forest, its birds, its fruit trees, its food, the fruit of the earth, its simplicity ..... its peace. The dream of being able to give other people the opportunity to experience what is our home for us and what we live day to day.
That dream led us to create El Toucanet Lodge, a small family business that is located in the heart of the Los Santos Forest Reserve, just two hours from San José, in which the visitor will have the opportunity to relax surrounded by the enigmatic cloud forest. , which is the home of the majestic Quetzal, sacred bird of the Mayans. As well as having the opportunity to live the experience of tasting one of the best coffees in the world. We are back and today our dream is still intact.
