• Santa Lucia is perched in a privileged position, atop a mountain with wonderful views.

  • Varied altitudes means incredible bio-diversity through its differing climatic zones.

  • Protected area set up by, cared for and worked by the thirteen families of the Santa Lucia community.

  • Wonderful wildlife, from spectacled bears to hummingbirds to cock-of-the-rock and more.

  • Beautiful forests full of orchids, flowers and ancient trees.

  • Intimate main lodge and comfy cabins with spectacular views over the forests.

The walk up was well worth it. We were the only people at the lodge. Our guide was the best we had in all our South America travels, he showed us so much.

The cabin had a beautiful view. I wish we could have stayed longer.
