Last weekend our guide Leo Chaves, visited Albergue del Socorro, a rainforest Lodge owned by Don Jose Miranda. Two years ago the Cinchona earthquake destroyed Don Jose´s house and caused great damage to the cabins, today with economic support from CRST and other people, they have a new restaurant, known as “Rancho” serving delicious meals like the traditional casado.

We are happy to see Don Jose´s family is again receiving tourists. Albergue del Socorro is located at aproximately 1000 mts elevation on the Caribean side, making it a hotspot for birding in Costa Rica. It is part of the Costa Rica Bird Route, a suggested route for birders to see high diversity of caribean species. Contact us to enjoy the best host, best local meal and the best birding, just 45 minutes from Sarapiqui hotels!
