There are no words for the Finca Palmonte that will describe the feeling and the experience you will have as this magical place. If you are a family and want to share with your children the magic and knowledge of this special biological part of the world, then stay here. This is not just a place to stay, this is an experience led by the owners Arlette and Alex. A Ecuadorean-European couple that wants to share this magical place with you. They speak multiple languages, but language doesn't matter when you go into the forest with Alex, his passion and excitement for the land and the biodiversity allows you to understand how special this jungle is. Since you are literally staying in the middle of the jungle, meals are part of the package. Arlette makes such wonderful big meals you won't be disappointed and we enjoyed sharing our meals and learning more about this special sliver of ecological importance. The suite we stayed in was perfect and we enjoyed reading to fall asleep and waking up.to the music of the jungle. We did several hikes here, going to see a lick of endemic cock of the rock birds and a night walk to see the jungle come alive (our 11 yr old favorite part). The best thing is just sitting on the balcony in the morning and watching the birds, so many birds! We loved our trip to Ecuador and the highlight was staying here at the Finca Palmonte, everyone in our family enjoyed themselves and learned. During the planning of our trip (during a pandemic), Arlette was great in communication and helped in planning, at one point we hit a wall with trying to get a ride to Banos and she was able to help arrange a safe driver (which is important in Ecuador!). Thank you Finca Palmonte for a trip and experience of a lifetime.

Finca Palmonte is truly a hidden gem! This reserve managed by a Swiss-Ecuadorian couple, located on the eastern slope of the Andes in the Llanganates-Sangay ecological corridor is a beautiful place, full of orchids, insects and birds. The food is delicious and abundant (especially breakfast). The welcome is fantastic and you feel at home very quickly. A place to come and come back to!

Gracious, calm and secure atmosphere to view and photograph birds, flowers and insects. They offer challenging forest hikes with amazing waterfalls in a second growth rainforest. Relax in an outdoor dining experience eating delicious European-Ecuadorian home cooking. Super clean hosteria and kitchen, in an Ecuadorian rustic environment with modern twists. This rainforest jewel is 35 minutes from Banos de Agua Santa, and 45 minutes from Puyo. Hosts are quite knowledgeable in the activities of the region. Several languages are spoken. Reservations are required. On a personal note, we have participated in World Wildlife meetings and other environmental group meetings at this facility. It’s actually a good place for a yoga retreat.
