Bellavista Cloud Forest Lodge
Kapawi Ecolodge
El Monte Sustainable Lodge
Cabañas San Isidro
Quijos Valley
San Isidrio Cabana in Ecuador. Unmissable and complete with "mystery" Owl. Birdingpal Fred Hodgson, UK
Hosteria San Jorge
Tinalandia Eco Lodge
Tinalandia - east of Santa Domingo de los Colonados and 2.5 hours from Quito. The lodge provides very comfortable chalets in the forest and quite exquisite food - the best I have had in any lodge, anywhere in the world!. The restaurant lovely has an open aspect with good birds all around. Very pleasant and very friendly. We only stayed for 24 hours on our tour - not enough!

Tandayapa Bird Lodge
Tandayapa Bird Lodge - great place for hummers with scores of them around the feeders all day long. Great trails around the lodge. Handy for the Tandayapa Valley(obviously!) and the Old Nono-Mindo. Good standard of accommodation and food. Very steep path to the lodge from the car park maybe be a problem for those with mobility difficulties - I found trekking poles to be a big help here. Communications with the outside world are very difficult - a blessing in some ways. Birdingpal Bob Foskett rfoskett(AT)ntlworld.com
Sani Lodge
Hostal Restaurante Mirador Río Blanco
Río Blanco
Hostal Restaurante Mirador Río Blanco (Trel: 2770307) in San Miguel de los Bancos or just "Los Bancos". Basic rooms but an excellent birding spot with feeders on a veranda that overlooks the huge valley of the Rio Blanco - spectacular. Trees all around gave us species that we didn't see elsewhere. Another place with great food and staff that are so helpful and welcoming. Los Bancos oddly enough doesn't have a "banco" but there are phone booths in the town. Worth a visit for lunch and/or dinner if you aren't staying there. Handy for Four Rivers, Rio Silanche and Milpe. No website. Birdingpal Bob Foskett rfoskett(AT)ntlworld.com
Alambi Cloud Forest Reserve
Tandayapa Valley
Wildsumaco Lodge
Wildsumaco Wildlife Sanctuary
Shiripuno Amazon Lodge
Yasuni National Park
