What our clients have to say

Visiting Ecuador with Birdecuador was the most amazing experience! Carmen organized the best places to stay around Quito's cloud forest and highlands, and our one week trip to the Galapagos seamlessly. The meals at both Guango Lodge and San Isidro were like going to a 5 star restaurant, and we were well taken care of at every turn. We had the most amazing naturalist, Roberto, who we joked we could not stump with any question; he knew everything. We were so fortunate to have had this experience. Birdecuador kept us safe despite covid, giving us outdoor dining options and making sure all staff were masked at all times. Ecuador is much better than the U.S. in terms of masking and keeping safe, very impressive. I was also impressed with all the activities that were available to choose from in addition to the wildlife viewing--heated pools, thermal springs, canoeing, archery, etc. My kids enjoyed the monkey's, hummingbirds, and pool alike. I could not have imagined a better trip, thank you for making it so special!
