Ask about our specials: 3 days/2 nights Condor watch and 15 days/14 nights bird watching trips.

With over 1,600 unique species of birds already observed and recorded within its various ecosystems (tropical rainforests, cloud forests, high-altitude paramo, and coastal mangroves, to name a few) Ecuador is one of the planet’s most bio-diverse nations. And each day more species are added to the list. This is twice the number of birds recorded in North America and three times as many as are known to exist in all of Europe.

Ecuador’s small size and well-developed transportation system gives tourists easy access into the various habitats of these birds. Ecuador is one of the world’s most impressive destinations for bird watching and a tour is a must for anyone interested in bird watching.

Bird watching trips are available for one or more days to a number of excellent bird watching destinations – Pasochoa Reserve, located an hour from Quito; Mindo, Nambillo Protected Forest, Boliche Recreational area, Cotopaxi National Park; and La Perla, a protected forest on the coast.
