Why Ecuador is the perfect place for bird lovers!

Ecuador is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots for birding, due to its wide variety of different habitats and microclimates.

Nowhere else is it so easy to encounter such diversity of bird species in such a small-sized country, including many endemics. In fact, often we only have to drive 1-2 hours to change from the Choco bioregion to Temperate dry forest, to Amazon foothills for a completely different Ecuador birding experience.

With over 1640 possible bird species packed into a country the same size as Wyoming, Ecuador is a true bird-lover’s paradise!
