The Serrano Family has been the owner of the Mirador de Quetzales Lodge in the Cloud Forest since the early 90s …
They have owned the land, where the Mirador de Quetzales Lodge is, since 1948 and now this is the result of their life process, a dream made true
The story the family and Mirador de Quetzales Lodge goes back to those days when Eddy Serrano married young and beautiful Leonor. They were young, he was bold and full of dreams.
Like in any romantic novel Eddy was a tall, strong and handsome young man. And she was petite and sweet. They got married and started living in between two volcanoes: The Turrialba and the Irazu Volcanoes… Fertile soils, chilly and foggy areas… Highlands. However, in those days the Irazu Volcano was starting to wake up after a long dormant period.
The rumbling of the volcano sounded like an underground road with hundreds of oxcarts passing through it. And Leonor started to feel very afraid, day after day. It was an isolated, chilly and noisy trembling area.
Too much to take, for a young girl that was beginning to form a family, there, where the Mirador de Quetzales Lodge is.
Eddy, on the other hand, was working for a relative’s dairy farm. But he was always talking about getting some land of their own. It had been a long term dream and Leonor knew that more than a dream this became an obsession for the young man.
Finally, one day, he went to visit a friend, who lived in the Southern part of the Panamerican Highway. Kilometer 70.
