We chose to do a 5 day tour with the Magical Birding Circuit on the recommendation of a friend who had visited several years ago. While the brochures and online information were enticing, we truly had no idea what a remarkable experience we were about to have when we were

I stayed in this lodge with my parents and my 11-yr-old sister as part of our eco-tour through the Magic Birding Circuit. The food was excellent and the staff were very helpful. The accomodations, though not the best in the Magic Birding Circuit, were more than good enough. Our

Waking up to the delightful grounds and surroundings of this eco-lodge on our first full day in Ecuador was a magical experience. The lovely grounds are a riot of colourful flowers, interesting plants, little walkways that lead you to unexplored nooks and seating areas where you

A lovely hill-side eco- lodge with rooms to fit your style. Greeted by a helpful and courteous staff. Hummingbirds zoom around you while sitting on the ivy-draped veranda. Great photo opportunities. In November, it was cold, so warm clothing needed for night and early

We only stayed one night and morning before moving on our Hummingbird Trip. But we saw several hummingbirds we only saw at this location so it was a great way to kick off the trip. The trip itself was easy to sign up for with clear instruction throughout the process and any

Apologies for the delay in replying.Tipping is a confusing activity to an Englishman as we are use to paying for a service and expect the charge to cover the whole activity.However we did tip the guide thirty dollars for a good couple of days bird watching and site seeing. I had the impression the Ecuadorians expected tips off the Americans but did not expect it off tourists from other countries. I handed tips directly to those who provided the service. There was no envelope or box.

"The rooms are all lovely and well done: I wouldn't worry about choosing."
"Be sure to request heaters for upper rooms."
"All rooms are nice, no need to upgrade choice of rooms."
"I recommend the lower rooms at Quito (more accessible, and perhaps larger)"
"Rooms in the main hotel are much more convenient than those in the upper level."
