Home to an incredible diversity of birds, Ecuador is a wonderful destination for birding enthusiasts and Otavalo is no exception. Its location within the dramatic Andes means it is home to the Andean condor amongst other rare species.
Hacienda Zuleta also proudly supports a wide range of conservation projects in the area, and great effort is taken to maintain the habitats for an array of incredible wildlife species. As well as being a sanctuary for condors and hummingbirds, those that are lucky may spot spectacled bears, owls or pumas.
The knowledgeable guides at the hacienda will be able to show you the best spots for birding and help to point out a variety of these beautiful creatures.
