Good place to make a small hike close to quito, i advise that you go early since the weather is not always excellent in the afternoon.

We really enjoyed our visit to Yanacocha, until we left the park at the end of the day. The "Information" office had been closed when we arrived but when we left it was open and they told us we had to pay an entrance fee...More

This reserve is privately owned by a NGO and located at 10,500 ft altitude. It is cold (55F), so dress warmly. The view is amazing from the top of the world. The park is about 90 mins from Quito. We hired a guide/driver to take...More

Great location for some hard to find hummingbirds but more. The Reserve has many hummingbird and banana feeders to attract great birds. They have a cafeteria with great coffee and snacks. The trail to additional feeders is long but easy to walk with more birds...More

Yanacocha is breathtakingly beautiful, a beautiful range of highland forests covering mountains and valleys. Besides the scenery, the main attraction are the brilliant hummingbirds and tanagers, which really put on a show for us. Highly recommended for nature lovers, but make sure you pace yourself,...More

This place is high, around 4000m / 12000ft, in the Andes. So the air is thin and it is cool, if not cold. But the views are incredible. And the staff keeps the bird feeders stocked, so you will always see hummingbirds and flowerpiercers as...More
