I just returned from an amazing two-weeks filled with adventures in birding and hiking with The Magic Birding Circuit. The accommodations at Tandayapa are beautiful and I was in a corner room with an unbelievable view. The location itself is amazing and as a beginner birder and hiker, I still can't believe the number of birds I was able to... More

My honey and I plus another couple traveled together to Ecuador, and am I ever glad we landed at San Jorge de Tandayapa Hummingbird Sanctuary & Lodge! I went for the hiking but was definitely into seeing all those beautiful, colorful birds — big and small. Hummingbirds everywhere. Beautiful lodge. Our room was fantastic with lots of glass overlooking a... More

Although August is a relatively quiet time for hummingbirds in Ecuador (there are too many flowers in the forests so they don't have to come to the feeders) we still had a great time here trying to get good photos. All very easy as the best spots were just in front of the breakfast area. All overseen by Stalin who... More

This lodge has an incredible view of the Andes, beautiful hiking trails, and attracts an amazing array of hummingbirds and other species. It was a pleasure to live in this stunning place for a couple of days. The lodge hosts were most attentive.

I spent two nights here as part of a photo safari. My only regret is not being able to spend more time. The accommodations are wonderful, the setting amazing, the staff so helpful. Overall a wonderful experience. I was here to photograph and literally could set up the camera on a tripod and jump up from meals at any time... More

My son and I had a fantastic time at Tandayapa! Excellent views, great food, fantastic orchids, hummingbirds flying all over, and the help of a wonderful guide. The whole experience definititely exceeded my expectations. If you are not used to being in living forest, be prepared for lots of chirps, tweets and hums. Nature is alive, and you get to... More

The views of Tandayapa valley from San Jorge Tandayapa (SJT) are stunning, as are the changing patterns of cloud forest clouds with periods of full sun. I really enjoyed sitting in the covered but open-air outdoor restaurant and watching the parade of hummingbirds and tanagers come to the sugar-water and banana feeders. I also enjoyed the challenge of hiking (with... More

My two friends and I spent four days in Dr. Jorge Cruz's Ecolodges in mid July. Cheryl customized our trip to maximize our hiking, birding and touring time. We spent two nights at the San Jorge Quito Lodge, one night at Tandayapa, and we hiked there and also at Milpe. On all of the hikes at Tandayapa and Milpe, and... More

Our stay at the San Jorge de Tandayapa Hummingbird Sanctuary was spectacular. We saw more hummingbirds than we could count, all close up. We actually had to dodge a few of them! The staff was very knowledgeable and was able to help us identify those we did not know. The accommodations are comfortable and even elegant, and the food was... More

This was our second stop on our orchid-birding tour personally guided by the well-renown Dr. Jorge Cruz. On the way to the lodge we stopped and visited the El Pahuma Orchid Reserve. It's located right next to the main highway and is very accessible; they have clean rest rooms, so it's also a good pit stop. We didn't see a... More
