• Birding, orchid and butterfly gardens and waterfalls.

  • More than 30 km of trails for day and night hikes.

  • Chance to see Andean Spectacled bears at a walking distance from the lodge.

  • Swim in pristine rivers and pools, at one with nature.

  • Spot humming birds - more than 4% of the entire world's species live in the wildlife reserve.

  • Easily accessed from Quito, with lovely, comfortable accommodation.

The highlight was a whole family of spectacled bears. The male was up one tree and the female and two cubs were up another, I managed several reasonable photos.

I stood and watched them interact for 20 minutes - what a privilege!!

I also managed to photograph some beautiful humming birds.
