We just arrived late as expected but the staff awaited our arrival in the middle of the night. As tour guide and operator, I am quite impressed by the service They offers a friendly atmosphere. The lodge location it's quite privileged as known , it's nice feeling to be surrounded by the andean mountains and colorful birds. Thanks for all your dedication !
We were recommended Wayqecha by an Amazon Conservation Association colleague, for its setting, the birding and its mission, which supports ACCA Peru in conservation efforts. 4 family members including 2 senior citizens with mobility concerns stayed at Wayqecha for 3 nights in December 2019. The lodge staff and our guide and driver were very helpful and accommodating with our needs. We spent a full day birding the road down into the valley and it was a legendary as expected. We also did the orchid trail, canopy walk and spent time just enjoying the frenzy of hummingbirds at the lodge feeders; all of these activities were accessible and enjoyed by the whole party. We were only in Peru for 2 weeks, but the cloud forest ecosystem captured my heart. The epiphytes, diminutive flowers, dripping lichen, rushing streams, drifting clouds and bird life (which is not nearly as difficult to see as in the lowland jungle) were a flora and fauna wonderland. Thank you ACA, ACCA and Wayqecha staff for showing us this little gem. I only wish we had had time to stay at the other properties.…
We spent three days here and had a great time enjoying nature and bird-watching. The lodge is perched above a cloud forest valley, very scenic. We had some excellent meals, and enjoyed walking along several of the trails.
Just an overnight stay! The rooms are in cabins situated in the grounds, the restaurant is in a newer building(could do with having toilets near this). Free tea, coffee, chocolate available all day! Room 2 has a view over the valley. It gets very cold at night, beds have sheets, blankets, duvet, spare blanket and a hot water bottle! Shower had plenty of hot water. Breakfast was cereal, eggs, fruit, bacon and plenty of fresh coffee, dinner was lovely, delicious soup, beef with plenty of fresh vegetables, amazing! Electricity in rooms from 1800 - 2100. Staff were lovely.
Great setting in a cloud forest. Numerous trails for exploration, orchid trail, canopy walk...much to keep us busy. Well placed cabins allowed for enjoying the cloud forest and the mixed flocks of birds that came by. Electricity is limited and the lights go out at 9pm. Beautiful road with waterfalls and wonderful flora and fauna. Being at high altitude, it does get a bit chilly.
