Tinalandia Reserve 2D/1N Tour

Tinalandia is a great introduction to the world of tropical birds where more than 360 species have been founded. The drive from Quito is a scene of its own until we reach the town of Santo Domingo. Tinalandia is 3 hours away from there (120 km.).

  • We'll have a full day at one of Ecuador's finest birding locations: Tinalandia. Located at around 2,000 feet in elevation (and only 10 minutes from our hotel), Tinalandia and its surrounding tracts of pre-montane wet forest have been deservedly praised by the international birding community. The Tinalandia bird list numbers over 300 species. Feeders on the grounds attract a wonderful variety of hummingbirds, tanagers and other species. Trails through both forest and open terrain are easy to walk. Birders here have an excellent opportunity to view species not only in the canopy, but also along the forest edge and on the forest floor.

    Birds seen at Tinalandia on last season's tour include: gray-capped cuckoo, purple-crowned fairy, green-crowned brilliant, rufous-tailed motmot, rufous jacamar, pale-mandibled aracari, scarlet-backed woodpecker, pale-legged hornero, banded-backed wren, purple honeycreeper and golden tanager.
