We stayed at the Huasquila Jungle Lodge for 3 nights. The lodge was located just outside of Cotunda. The lodge was well kept, the room was clean, and the gardens were beautiful. It was not deep in the jungle so therefore there isn't a lot of wildlife present. However, we did see lots of birds, insects, a snake, and smaller animals. We did 3 walks in the jungle and learned about medicinal plants, edible fruits/plants, etc. It was interesting and beautiful. We also visited an animal rescue center. The driver that picked us up in Quito and dropped us off drove a little crazy. The food was great except for some mushrooms that we ate. They made us sick. Other than getting sick from the mushrooms we had a wonderful time and would definitely return if we had the chance.
