A Must on your Birding Vacation

Located in the mountains close to Cartago, you will find a true birdwatchers paradise – Hotel Quelitales. It is an authentic, up-scale hotel with lush gardens, which provide a home for hundreds of birds. The abundance of birds and wildlife is also caused by the proximity to Tapanti National Park. Hotel Quelitales is in the neighborhood Peñas Blancas in the small town Cachí. In this area you can explore rich green coffee plantations. Furthermore you can discover a sugar mill, which dates back to the early twentieth century. But the true highlight here is definitely the variety of birds! Keep your eye open and with a bit of patience you might spot different species of Oropendolas, Euphonias, Tanagers, Herons and many more. And all this from your suite’s balcony or on one of their mountain trails through the virgin forest!

A little Luxury in a lot of Nature

Hotel Quelitales offers modern style blended into the forest. Relax in their large suites and bungalows and enjoy elegance combined with comfort. Memory foam and 100% cotton sheets on all their deluxe beds invite you to a sleep you never had before. Furthermore wake up to the sounds of the forest and refresh with a dip in their waterfall Doña Ana. Your culinary well-being is of course also taken care of in their world-renowned restaurant Casa José. Sit back and enjoy spectacular mountain views, while enjoying first-class service and a fusion of traditional Costa Rican cuisine with recipes from all over the world. Whether you are here for business or for leisure, you can take advantage of all their activities within the hotel and beyond. In the last consecutive years, Quelitales has won several awards for their hospitality. Justifiably! They plan each detail of your stay to assure you will be able to make the most of your time.

Reconnect to Nature

Hotel Quelitales lives by the philosophy to be an example to follow. They aspire to be in harmony with nature and to serve as a bridge so that their clients may interact with and take advantage of nature without affecting it. Warm mornings and overcast afternoons offer you the chance to start your day with exploring the area and to read a good book later on in the day. With an average high of 82 degrees Fahrenheit (28 Celsius) and an average low of 51 degrees Fahrenheit (11 Celsius), they do not need air conditioning. Furthermore to increase the feeling of reconnecting to nature, Hotel Quelitales does offer Wi-Fi, but no television. The best television is looking out of your window or observing wildlife firsthand anyways. So for the best possible experience they recommend to take a warmer jacket, a water-resistant poncho, comfortable walking shoes, insect repellent, your camera and of course binoculars to observe all the birds on your birding vacation to Costa Rica!
