The Bellavista Nature Reserve is located just 2 hours from Quito making it the perfect short nature-escape break.
The area offers a high biodiversity of bird, plant and animal species and is recognised as a worldwide wildlife hotspot with very different flora and fauna to that of the rainforest. It is particularly famous for the hundreds of colourful hummingbirds that flit between the many feeders located around the lodge.
Above all the peace and tranquillity of the lodge make it an ever popular trip with our clients.
