Resplendent Quetzal

The gem of Monteverde

The best place to see Quetzals

Monteverde Cloud Forest is one of the best places in the world to see the amazing Resplendent Quetzal. These cloud forest birds require very specific types of forest for nesting and foraging, and there's a healthy population of these birds here at Monteverde.

Esteban Mendez knows these forests intimately, and knows all of the secret places to find these spectacular birds.
