We got picked up by a taxi our hotel arranged (Belmond Las Casitas) around 7am. I think we probably arrived around 7:45 which was perfect timing. The main spot was pretty crowded so we walked down to a lower viewing area that wasn't too crowded...More

This is where all the tour buses stop to see the condors in the morning, and therefor is absolutely heaving with people. If you have seen condors elsewhere in South America then you can avoid. You’ll get better canyon views elsewhere.

It's really quite exciting as you approach and see the odd Condor flying off over the valley. Like a lot of wild animals they don't always appear on queue, however our guide was worded up and told they are making an appearance around 9am lately...More

One of the most amazing experiences of my life was to spend some time here watching the Condors, truly awe-inspiring. It’s best to get here early in the morning, before it gets too busy, and I believe it’s also the best time to see Condors.
