“It took about 2 1/2 hours to reach our destination — the Savegre Mountain Hotel in the village of San Gerardo de Dota. The hotel is located in the so-called cloud forest, deep in a valley along the Savegre river, but still 7,000 feet above sea level. The climate and terrain were much different than what we’d seen at Tiskita. It was chilly, in the 50s, and the setting appeared more European than Central American. Oak and spruce trees outnumbered palm.” Ben Sturtevant survives Cerro de la Muerte (“the mountain of death”) and boot-chafed calves to fish for rainbows with Dave Sherwood deep inside Costa Rica.
