South America is the richest continent in terms of biodiversity, and this is true also of birds. Country-wise, Colombia comes in first position, closely trailed by Brazil, Peru and Ecuador. However, when scaled against the size of the country, Ecuador with its 1600 species on a territory half the size of France is head and shoulders above the fold.
The political and social stability, relatively fast development, good road system and numerous quality hotels coupled with the fabulous biodiversity all contribute to make of
Ecuador a prime destination for birdwatching tourism.


We concocted five tours to make the most of this great country by visiting all its major bioregions.

You will discover the avifauna of such exciting regions as the Andes, the Amazon, the coastal plains, the Chocó, the tumbesian region, the coastal wetlands or the Galapagos archipelago.
