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… (photo by Richard C. Hoyer) …through vast areas of magnificent middle elevation forest…(photo by Richard C. Hoyer) …and even a bit of desert…(photo by Richard C. Hoyer) …before reaching coastal mangroves…(photo by Richard C. Hoyer) We’ll stay in wonderful places, some charming… …a few elegant…(photo by Richard C. Hoyer) …but all comfortable and clean…(photo by Richard C. Hoyer) …and most with superb habitat just off the balcony. (photo by Richard C. Hoyer) Our meals will be healthy and fresh. The road network is now very good… …and there are great trails and woods at every turn. We’ll see hundreds of species of birds… …of varying sizes… …and shapes. Some large and arresting… …and others tiny and easily overlooked. We may 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.
