Bird Watching

Globally, the tropical dry forests of Ecuador are considered a conservation priority. Less than 25% of the original coverage of this forest still remains in the country.


There are three guided walks, ranging from 1 ½ hours to 4 hours, as well as shorter self-guided trails and a 3 km bicycle route for those who enjoy biking.

Forest Nursery
