Accommodation

 
Wyndham Costa del Sol Lima Airport
Very convenient. Effective as an airport hotel - recommended
 
Casa Andina Koricancha
Excellent location, great service, quaint & helpful - recommended
 
Napo Wildlife Centre
Wow - what a brilliant place for so many reasons - community based, beautiful amazonia. Such a surprise to be so immersed in the jungle with such luxuries - awesome service, great facilities, tranquil lake side, lovely folks. The only fault was the lack of night walks. Really impressed. Highly recommended. Wonderful birding 130 species, 3 anacondas, 6 species of monkeys, giant otter - no Sloth or Kaimans - highly recommend the Helm Ecuador Bird app for iphone - brilliant. Do not take books - all venues provided localised photographic bird guides
 
Bellavista Cloud Forest Lodge
Great choice. Well done. Very authentic & pleasant. We did organise the Cock of the Rock as discussed. Well worth it - fantastic. The kids loved it. We walked the Waterfall track - brilliant. The mammals were an extra treat
 
La Casona de la Ronda
Lovely centrally located accommodation.
