My friend and I stayed at the Tandayapa Hummingbird Sanctuary and Lodge as part of our participation in San Jorge's "Magic Hiking Circuit." My only regret is that we didn't stay there longer. So much beauty, and so many unexplored trails. Our room there was tastefully appointed with stunning, mythic views. The trail we did get to hike led up... More

This pristine forest abounds with nature: birds are everywhere and the entire staff are there to help you spot them. Love hummingbirds? They cannot be missed here. It's a buzz of activity at the comfortable dining area: I'd call it mesmerizing. And not only hummingbirds but toucans, all kinds of tanagers, euphonias, warblers and more: oh my! I loved this...

This Lodge is a hummingbird heaven we never got tired of watching them whist having breakfast and lunch. The scenery is spectacular and you can watch the clouds role in and out. We had the corner room which had views all round, it was very large and clean, foods great and all staff happy and helpful.Miguel our guide was really... More

We recently had the distinct pleasure of staying at San Jorge de Tandayapa Lodge. Mounted high on a hill overlooking a beautiful valley, with all the best the cloud forest has to offer was memorable. Our hosts there were most accommodating and the birding was the best. Up at 6:00 and 60+ species observed before breakfast! And, we never left... More

We take yearly birding trips all over the world and, over the last 10 years we have visited four eco-lodges in and around the Mindo area. This was an unplanned visit to relatives in Ecuador and we thought we’d like to visit a different lodge from the previous ones as San Jorge and it’s “Magic Circuit” have excellent internet reviews....

You are not a birdwatcher. How do four noisy and distracted completely unexperienced people try to bird watch with one set of binoculars? While observing 65 bird species at our restaurant without moving means an Eco-Luxurious area! Especially for folks that walk only one hour a day. Our prices are totally competitive and enjoyed by birders worldwide. San Jorge properties... More

I visited three San Jorge ecolodges--Quito, Tandayap, and Milpe. All were excellent! My room at Tandayapa had a stunning view, with giant windows that opened. Meals (superb Ecuadorian food) were on a deck with hummingbirds, tanagers, etc. visiting constantly. At Milpe my room had three walls of windows, and a private porch with a hammock (perhaps the most restful place... More

Visited Tandayapa in december 2014 as part of San Jorge Magic Birding Circuit, and have only positive comments about the tour, the lodges, the food and the staff. Guides were exellent, and we managed to find no less than 365 different bird species on this 10 day tour! Returned home with lots of photos, both of nature and birds. I... More

My favourite of the San Jorge Lodges. Amazing food, birds and views. Saw 86 species here not counting heard onlys. If you like nature you will love this place. The hiking trails are great as well. We stayed two nights and it was very hard to leave.

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.
