This year we decided to spend our holiday in Ecuador once again like we did last year. And even this year we stayed at the Reserva Ecologica Pachijal for a week, its position is great (1800 m. high and no mosquitos) and it is located near a charming and foggy forest.
During our stay we were surrounded by a relaxing and friendly atmosphere.
Even though the lodge doesn't have many rooms, they all have a bathroom and are very clean and comfortable. The food is a mixture between Italian and Ecuadorean and I recommend trying it. You could also ask the owner to take you to its restaurant pizzeria that he owns in Mindo, you will definitely enjoy it. The staff is nice and friendly, as in every lodge in Ecuador, and our guide was well prepared: he always knew which direction and which path to take and he could also tell us the best spots where we could see rare birds and take pictures.
On the way back from our walks we could always have some delicious fruit to eat while watching hummingbirds come and go from the food that was placed for them. One of the best moments was lying on the hammock while listening to the sounds of the forest.
This lodge is perfect if you want to experience adventure and outdoor life.
