We didn't sleep in the hotel, but took here a break on the road from San Jose to Uvita. We didn't see the quetzal but many other beautyful birds. The fish we had was delicious and the price was realy good.

I went to Miriam's Quetzals a few weeks ago and the overall experience was very good. What I liked the most was Miriam's personalized service, she took her time to tell us stories about the area, to show us many different species of exotic birds...More

After reading the reviews on trip advisor, it was a no-brainer to visit Miriam's cafe. We were staying at the Quetzal cabins down the hill, so this was our local eatery. We had breakfast and dinner, as well as coffee stops during our two night...More

Hola Miriam - la visitamos en 2009 y no nos olvidamos de usted - abajo esta el anuncio que pusimos de nuestra visita en tripadvisor para que la conocieran mas personas. No creo que se acuerde de nosotros - salimos muy temprano en la manana nuestro ultimo dia - pero por si acaso - Daniela, Carl y nuestros 3 hijos. Nos gustria regresar en Marzo del 2018 y quedarnos en una de sus cabanas! Le llamare a: 85-93-60-32. Muchas Gracias! “Wonderful views and bird watching!! Cabanas at Miriam's - great deal!” Reviewed 20 May 2009 San Gerardo de Dota was the last stop in our 2-week trip to Costa Rica. I am SO glad we went!! The drive to get there was very "interesting" - the road is narrow and steep, but SO worth it!! After a whole day of searching, we were able to see the famous and incredibly beautiful quetzal bird! Along with hundreds of hummingbirds, woodpeckers, and many other birds. We found out of a GREAT place to eat very close to a hotel called "Dantica" - with Senora Miriam - who offered us wonderful locally made meals! Mrs. Miriam and her husband also have 2 cabins for rent - very simple but clean - we saved a LOT by staying here. To reserve a cabin, you can call Senora Miriam at [--]. She does not speak a lot of English, but is a wonderful host.
