  • Description


    The ecological reserve located in Ecuador has more than 200 hectares of "cloud forest". The "cloud forests" have a rich native endemic biodiversity of the world. However, many of these forests remain poorly known such as the "cloud forest". 80% of the reverve remained a primary forest where there has been identified hundreds of different species of birds, 40 species of mammals such as Pumas (Mount lions) and glasses eyes bear (in this moment in endanger) thousands of tropical plants, including a variety of amazing orchids and some very rare, bromeliads and other epiphytes. Provide an opportunity for volunteers to participate in a cloud forest conservation project by participating in tree planting, scientific research, or even by promoting sustainable agriculture. Nowadays, the reserve consists of a typical old wood house, dating back to the decade of 1940. From this house was built a room with a terrace, with a view of the cloud forest. 3 "cabins" were built also to receive visitors with all confort. 2 habitations with 4 beds, independent kitchen, terrace and dining room... The reserve is isolated, 4 hours drive from Quito and in an exceptional place.
