Most of the times there is a lot of wildlife to observe when we go on Waterfall Hike in Piedras Blancas National Park but the wildlife bends with the environment in a great camouflage show and this makes it more difficult when you want to spot them in the rainforest. So you learn how to be train your eye and listen carefully to the sounds of the forest. This time I was walking down the trail after swimming in nice cool water with Cheryl, Hall, Kate and Nelsy and I heard a Slaty Tailed Trogon singing but I could not see it so we all started trying to follow the singing of the Trogon from tree to tree and finally we spotted it! There it was, the Slaty Tailed Trogon with its bright colors that help the majority of times in spotting them but not this time. This Trogon is related to the Quetzal but unlike the Quetzal it only lives in low lands and they feed from insects, especially termites.
Mango Guest HouseThe Mango Guest House is a 2 story accommodation that has 4 private rooms. Set in a beautiful jungle garden area with mango trees on all sides and open views of the surrounding rainforest. Each room has private entrance, beautiful hardwood floors, private bathroom, private terrace, louver doors and windows that wrap around the room to afford panoramic views. Rooms have queen beds (or twin beds upon request) with mosquito netting and ceiling fans. The Mango Guest House is separate from the Main Lodge.
The mango house is great for all types of travelers. Especially a good choice for friends or families that want to be close, but also have the privacy of your own room with private bathroom. Also great for single travelers or those who are a bit nervous about staying in the jungle, as the mango rooms are more in an open area then the private cabins that are tucked into the rainforest. Also great for parties of approximately 6-10 that want to rent all 4 rooms at once.
