San Gerado de Dota
San Gerado is a small little farming hamlet tucked into a valley of orchards, trout-filled streams and a large population of Quetzals, one of the most spectacular of the Trogon bird species.
Quetzals have been reported here regularly every April and May (during breeding season) but are often seen during the rest of the year as well. The trout fishing in the River Savegre is also very good.
Ballena National Marine Park
Situated almost the same distance between Manuel Antonio and the Osa Peninsula, the Ballena National Marine Park encompasses 270 acres of land and 13,300 acres of ocean (5,400 marine hectares). It also contains the largest coral reef on the Pacific side of Central America around Isla Ballena.
There are wonderful beaches and great opportunities for swimming and snorkelling in the clear waters, as well as kayaking through the mangroves. Isla Ballena can be visited as can Caño Island with its spectacular beach and snorkelling / diving opportunities. Humpback whales are often seen in the area between December and April, and Olive Ridley and Hawksbill turtles also visit.
