We enjoyed the Eco Lodge and the reserve and relished every minute. A fabulous experience (only 2 hours) away from the buzzing megacity of Quito. A large variety of birds from tiny colibris to big aras, and last not least impeccable accommodation and really great food!
Beautiful stay, service was amazing, food was excellent, and absolutely everything was perfect! The whole experience was worth it. I would go back again and again.
Guides were expert and the hikes were exciting, totally committed to conserving the forest that is home to the endangered spectacled bear. We saw many beautiful birds, orchids and butterflies.
This is an eco lodge in the lower altitude cloud forest. It is lower than Tandayapa or Bellavista, so the flora and fauna are a bit different. A place to enjoy relaxing, walking in the forest and sharing in the natural experience with the very enthusiastic staff.
