Choco Specialist

The Choco area is one of the most important biodiversity hotspots. For this reason, we have chosen this place as a main destination.

We start our journey in the city of Quito where we will be heading to the Laguna San Pablo to see some nice and restricted range species such as sympathetic Subtropical Doradito and the elusive Ecuadorian Rail. After this introduction, we will go to the dry forest in the province of Imbabura. Here we will end the evening observing some local birds as Scrub Tanager, Blue-headed Saphire and Ruddy-breasted Seedeater.

The next day, we will go across the Western slopes of the Andes heading to the lowlands to observe the first Choco endemic: Star-chested Tree-Runner, Purplish-mantled Tanager, Black Solitarie, and many other species.

After spending the day in this amazing place we will head back to the lowlands of this region where we will stay a few days visiting the area looking for birds in Ecuador. In this place you can also see the Blue Cotinga, Five-colored Barbet, Rufous Crowned Antpitta, Golden-chested Tanager, as well as a variety of many other beautiful birds.

Next stop is the Playa de Oro reserve, which has a forest of 10,000 hectares of protected area. Here you can find many more endemic species from the Choco bioregion. During the last day we continue to the Esmeraldas airport to get our flight back to Quito city.
