Birdwatcher's Paradise Lodge
Tina's BIRDWATCHER'S PARADISE LODGE
EXCLUSIVELY FOR NATURE LOVERS
Tina's Birdwatcher's Paradise Lodge
is the perfect choice for nature lovers that don't want to be confronted by hectic and bustling tourism.
Bird watching is easy right from the sunny terrace at the lodge in the amazing Monteverde area in Costa Rica.
Even from your bed you can observe hummingbirds taking a sip from the ''cola de gato'' flowers.
Birdwatcher's Paradise Lodge is peacefully located on the 3 acres of former farming land called ''Finca Cielo Verde' (Finca Green Sky), right at the edge of Santa Elena village.
The large terrace is surrounded by primary forest and country side, with lots of flowers and coffee- and banana plants.
Walking on our trails, you can watch Toucans, Trogons,
Quetzals, the Three-Wattled Bellbird, Motmots, Manakins,
parrots, hummingbirds, Toledos, hawks, woodpeckers,
butterflies and other winged beauties of this zone
with a little bit of luck. We have also seen a
variety of mammals such as raccoons, opossums,
agoutis, foxes, bats, which come right to the house at night time, between other more shy species.
Finca Cielo Verde has a special location. Birds and
animals stay there in the mountains, as further down
the Pacific slope the forests have been cut. Enjoy
views of the mountains and of the Pacific Ocean from
Being only 7 minutes away from the center of often
noisy and touristy Santa Elena, gives you easy access
of other attractions of Monteverde.
Many tour providers pick you up right at the farm's entrance for free.
The 48 square meters sized cabin is just a year old. It is built with an artistic
rustic touch. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a wonderful hot
shower. In the sleeping room we provide 2 double beds
and one single bed. As a special you find a Costa Rican fireplace with a cozy sitting
area, to relax during cool nights.
Tina's Birdwatcher's Paradise is protected from the wind
and off the gravel road. For this reason days are warm
and dust is not a bother. The huge terrace invites you to enjoy
Have a wonderful cup of our coffee every morning. We produce 100% organically coffee on the farm. See some of the plants right beside the house.
Or, get a branch of our peppermint plant and prepare a fresh cup of tea.
We are trying to reforest ''Finca Cielo Verde'', as it was before 20 years. With the help of the ''Monteverde Institute'', that provides native trees of the zone, we try to help endangered species to survive.
Tina will help you with all information and tour bookings at the best price of the things to do in Monteverde and other places of Costa Rica, in Spanish, English and German.
You can find Birdwatcher's Paradise Lodge only in the Reise Know How guidebook, because it is a new place to stay.
