Just returned from a 3 day/2 night stay at Pachijal Lodge, Mindo. What a fantastic few days! Our host Jaime was fantastic, great company and very attentive to ... view more our needs. Our guide, Julia, is a great birder and the only licensed female guide in Ecuador! She was able to show us some fantastic Species including Choco toucan, Sword billed hummingbird, Golden head quetzal and Black and White Owl. We were also treated to close views of Antpittas and Andean Cock of the rock, thanks to local landowners Angel and Rodrigo. All in all a smashing few days, clocking up over 100 species in breathtaking landscapes. Cannot recommend this lodge and its staff enough. any questions please email me. James

My husband Mike and I visited Ecuador in Jan 2007. We really enjoyed our birdwatching tour arranged through Pachijal. It was an individual bird tour with both a ... view more guide, Julia Patino and our driver Jaime. Julia is an excellent guide. She knows the area and the birds by sight and by vocalizations. We started from Quito after our return from the Galapagos Islands. We left at 6:30 am to arrive at a Jocotoco Reserve Yanacocha where there are a lot of the puff legged hummingbirds. We spent the morning there, ate lunch and continued on the Rute de Quinde birding along the way. We arrived at Pachijal to a nice spacious room with hot water and a view of the valley of the Pachijal Reserva. Day 2 we spent at the Pachijal Reserve where boots were included. Day 3 we visited the Paz de las Aves private reserve. We got up early to see the Andean Cock on the Rock. Angel the owner of the reserve discovered how to call the Antapitta species present in for a close view. That was a treat. We spent some time at his hummingbird feeders. We saw a red brocket deer and some puma tracks. He included a very nice breakfast and produced the article written about his work with the Antapittas. We spent the rest of the day in the area around Mindo including the Butterfly reserve and the hummingbird feeders in town. Day 4 we went to the Rio Silanche Reserve. Julia found 5 different species of trogans here and the great antshrike. We saw a lot other birds also. One of the highlights near the end of the day was the "oso perezoso" or two toed sloth. We observed the sloth for a long time. Day 5 we went to Milpe and the Carretera Rio Pachijal. The highlight in Milpe were the great views of the club winged manakins displaying. Each area we visited had different species of birds due to the change in altitude. In all we saw close to 200 species of birds. We didn't use a laser or playback. The lodge was very comfortable and quiet. The food was tasty and plentiful. The staff pleasant.
