This lodge is in the middle of nowhere, frequented by more birds and hummingbirds than you can believe. The only access was on foot or by mule but also the accommodation rooms and the food was top class. I cannot believe it is possible to do this on this location. It is only possible because the staff are top class. Give it a go, you will not be disappointed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tandayapa Bird Lodge comprises of a main building (where ten of the rooms are located), and another outlying building with two further rooms. The main lodge has been designed with convenience in mind;there is no need to hike between your rooms and the dining area. The outer rooms are used for those who wish for more seclusion, away from the main building. The entire lodge is based within verdant cloudforest, on the western slope of the Andes in Ecuador, virtually on the equator. The lodge’s centerpiece is the balcony, where a series of feeders bring in a variety of hummingbirds species daily. Over 30 hummingbird species have been recorded, and usually more than a dozen species come in daily. Forest trails are available on site, and the lodge is situated within a core of excellent birding and nature areas, and so is often used as an extended base to visit these too. ... more less
