This is a lovely nature excursion an easy drive from Quito. In this enchanting green kingdom, a profusion of life awaits your discovery, including botanical treasures such as bromeliads and orchids, as well as the fascinating plant families of Gesneriaceae and Melastomataceae. Since Bellavista is located on the equator, flowers are in bloom year round.

Birders and nature lovers alike thrill to the sight of brightly coloured tanagers and the Plate-billed Mountain-Toucan, and everybody loves to spend time just admiring the multitude of hummingbirds hovering around our feeders in front of the Trogon´s Lounge!

Bellavista's resident mammals include the endangered Spectacled Bear, (recently photographed by one of our "Camera Traps"), as well as the Mountain Lion, the Andean Coati, Kinkajoo, the Tayra (Giant Weasel) , and of course the newly discovered Olinguito!
