Introduction: Whether you are looking for excellent birding or just a place to relax amongst nature, the modest Talari Mountain Lodge in south central Costa Rica is a great destination. Indeed, nature and a peaceful environment are the major themes of the lodge. Its 20 acres combine wonderful gardens, flowering trees, a private primary forest, and a bordering rushing river which all together invite a host of birds. An early morning bird walk in the gardens may well be one of the highlights of your trip with birds seemingly everywhere. Its location is ideal for those visiting the Savegre area to the north and to those traveling to points further south as well. Excellent meals and the friendly hosts of the lodge will only add to your experience during your stay.

Location: Talari Mountain Lodge is located approximately 7 km east of San Isidro del General at the base of the Talamanca Mountains in the Pacific south-central region of Costa Rica. It is approximately 45 minutes inland from Dominical, 1 ½ hours from the Savegre area, and a little over 3 hours from the San Jose Airport. CRG will provide you with exact directions
to the lodge if you are planning on renting a car and driving during your visit.
