    We were here in April and had to come back. There were not as many hummingbirds as in April, but still enough to be entertaining. We did find more birds while touring the grounds. Meals were excellent, again featuring fresh local ingredients. The room was...More

    This lodge is not for the casual traveller. It is for birders and photographers, especially for those who are interested in multi-flash photography of hummingbirds. This is the best lodge that I have visited in Ecuador for this purpose. Additionally, the food was great.
