Ecuador: The South

Southern Ecuador is a spectacular place… …with stunning wild vistas… …and fabulous birds… …everywhere we look… …and often just outside our rooms. We’ll range from the high elevation paramo… …Polylepis woodland… …and cloud forest… …through vast areas of magnificent middle elevation forest… …and even a bit of desert… …before reaching coastal mangroves… …and the expansive Pacific. We’ll stay in wonderful places, some charming… …a few elegant… …but all comfortable and clean… …and most with superb habitat just off the balcony. Our meals will be healthy and fresh. The road network is now very good… …and there are great trails and woods roads at every turn.
We’ll see hundreds of bird species… …of varying sizes… …and shapes. Some large and arresting… …and others tiny and easily overlooked… …and lots more very different birds near the Pacific.
We may well see 40 or more species of hummingbirds.
We’ll look at everything… …on our travels… …but will probably not stray too far from the birds.
