Welcome to SierrAzul
SierrAzul is a private ecological reserve that protects and preserves the mountain rainforest, supports scientific research and promotes ecotourism.
Located in the eastern foothills of the Andes, where the Amazon plain is coupled with the Andean highlands, its 2600 hectares of primary forest are a haven for the Amazonian and Andean flora and fauna, many of which are endangered.
Spectacled bears, mountain tapirs, cougars, are some of the mammals that live here away from hunters and the influence of civilization. Over 400 bird species make up the bird inventory of the Quijos River Valley. Most of these species are found in SierrAzul, including the rare and nearly extinct Giant Antpitta.
Lush vegetation that includes cedar, rubber tree, cascarilla, Dragon’s Blood, motilon, poroton and hundreds of varieties of orchids form a huge and well-preserved natural garden.
A paradise for bird watchers, adventure lovers, trout fishing enthusiasts or just for those who wish to rest in an absolutely natural environment while breathing fresh air, drinking clear water and enjoying a comfortable rustic eco lodge in the middle of a mountain rainforest.
