San Gerardo de Dota

It was colonized a little more than have a century ago. The first populations dedicated themselves to the craft production of oak carbon. Later the production of agricultural products such as apples, blackberries, peaches and dates became important. Agriculture combined with tourism makes the most of the interest of the international and national visitors, allowing them to enjoy their climate, the biological diversity and the hospitality of the neighbors. It is a farming community that extends along the western foothills of the Cerro de la Muerte; it is famous for bird watching. During the months of April and May, during the nurturing period you can see quetzals regularly and during other times of the year, it is one of the best places in the country to observe this species. You can go trout fishing in the Río Savegre.
