I visited this lodge for three nights with a group of ten who were seeking to photograph butterflies. Due to very cloudy weather, we didn't see as many butterflies as desired, but there were excellent birds at the feeders and hide. The food was excellent,...More
We were here in April and had to come back. There were not as many hummingbirds as in April, but still enough to be entertaining. We did find more birds while touring the grounds. Meals were excellent, again featuring fresh local ingredients. The room was...More
This lodge is not for the casual traveller. It is for birders and photographers, especially for those who are interested in multi-flash photography of hummingbirds. This is the best lodge that I have visited in Ecuador for this purpose. Additionally, the food was great.
We stayed at Tandayapa for a night because we had heard so much about it. This was not at the beginning of our Ecuador birding trip, so perhaps I had already had enough experience with Ecuadorian lodges not to be impressed. What struck me as...More

The guide we had spoke good English.
