Keep in mind there are more than 1650 species of birds which occupy multiple ecosystems or regions such as: Choco region, Central Andes, Northern Amazonia, Amazonia south of Tumbes and Maranon region.
In a few hours from the capital, Quito, we will be able to find many spectacular places for bird watching. Within minutes we could find different ecological zones which is why Ecuador is one of the best hot spots for birding activity in South America. There will also be the opportunity to admire the majestic volcanoes with its beautiful glaciers.
We may also observe the culture of Otawalo if we have an extra day in our itinerary. Here we can buy some souvenirs.
