Our stay at the San Jorge Eco-Lodge and Botanical Reserve couldn't have been more enjoyable. It is a beautiful spot, located above the noise and bustle of Quito, yet close enough to have easy access to the city. The staff is courteous, accommodating, and interesting to talk to. Dr. Cruz helped us arrange a fascinating birding circuit, which he led himself. He is a gracious host and we are sure knows every bird in all of the ecosystems of Ecuador, as well as most of the flora and fauna of those diverse places. He gave us a copy of his book on medicinal plants of Ecuador as well as the hummingbirds around the Quito area, and we will treasure those gifts. We will definitely be going back!
