“The rewards of birding here are unsurpassed; it just does not get better than this!”

Discover birding paradise Ecuador

The Neotropics are widely regarded as being packed with thousands of confusing birds in difficult birding conditions. This can be true, but the rewards of birding here are unsurpassed. After just a week of seeing numerous new families and having the intricacies of Neotropical birding explained, you will find it is highly addictive. It just does not get better than this. For those of you who would feel empty if you left Ecuador without a condor, we have added a short High Andes extension.

This tour is designed to be an introduction to Neotropical birds. The guide will attempt to show you representatives of all the Neotropical families, even if they are common birds. While finding the regional endemics is a secondary focus of the tour, you will still see quite a lot of them, and you certainly do not have to be a novice to enjoy the trip. Quite often more experienced birders join this tour, since it is a shorter and less expensive tour than most. This is a bird-focused tour, and opportunities to see other wildlife are limited.
