Our rustic, but popular Eagle's Lair is a hand crafted wooden cabin with a tree house feel, perched on the mountain side overlooking the lush river valley. 4km's from the center of Vilcabamba this ecologically friendly cabin has a downstairs living area and kitchenette with a 4 burner stove, blender, water filter and basic pots and utensils; an upstairs sleeping loft; a balcony overlooking the lush mountain river valley; and a 24hr hot shower. It is a short uphill walk to the cabins. Please check our other cabins. Integrated into the midst of a typical rural Andean community we offer a unique cultural opportunity to enjoy the local color of traditional country life, while hiking the best trails around Vilcabamba; or just kick back, relax and go back in time, in a truly natural retreat. ...Our rustic, but popular Eagle's Lair is a hand crafted wooden cabin with a tree house feel, perched on the mountain side overlooking the lush river valley. 4km's from the center of Vilcabamba this ecologically friendly cabin has a downstairs living area and kitchenette with a 4 burner stove, blender, water filter and basic pots and utensils; an upstairs sleeping loft; a balcony overlooking the lush mountain river valley; and a 24hr hot shower.

Our color bird guide has photos of the most common species around the cabins.

If you want to visit the beautiful countryside of Vilcabamba "the eagles liar" is a place worth to visit. You need to be able to walk up and down the hills, because it is a challenging climb to reach the accommodation but it is worth....More

About the neighborhood
While Vilcabamba is no longer the quaint little Andean village it once was, the countryside remains as unspoiled and stunning as ever. Nestled in the foothills of the Podocarpus National Park, Cabañas Rio Yambala is the ideal spot to enjoy Vilcabamba's picture-book valleys & clear mountain rivers. Local trails lead to swim holes along the river, to local beauty spots & waterfalls, or into the heart of the mountains, to the edge of the cloud forest and the Podocarpus National Park - Vilcabamba's best spot for hiking, horse trekking & birding!
Getting around
We are 4 km's from the center of Vilcabamba, in the upper reaches of the valley, reached by a dirt road. There are plenty of stores and restaurants in Vilcabamba but not much further out, so it is advisable to eat or get a few groceries before coming up if you are arriving late. It is a beautiful and culturally interesting 45 minute to 1 hour walk to Vilcabamba, or a 15 minute $3.50 taxi ride. We can call a taxi for you whenever you need one. As the instigators of eco-tourism in Vilcabamba we have a wealth of knowldege about hiking and horsetrecking in the area, birding, visiting the Podocarpus National Park and general activities in the area.
