I grew up (my childhood) in a farm located in the cloud forest. Since 2001, I started to work in tourism as a bilingual driver for near 2 years and then I studied tourism, got my credentials and working for small local travel agencies and I ended up working as a tour guide for Lindblad Expeditions (National Geography). Since then, I am guiding all over Ecuador, Amazon rain forest and on cruises to the Galapagos islands. My last 9 years working together with local people from the northwestern part of Quito city.
I would love to share my experiences, the bit I know with everyone who are interested in nature wonders like the birds and in general what the ecology means. Why birding tours are expensive if nature is free ? We only need to know it and start to understand and start to love nature.

Donde estarás

Cloud forest Community of San Jose de Saloya, it is a village of 40 families located at the northwestern part of Quito city, almost two hours drive. Excellent not touristy place for birding (hummingbirds and toucans) and farm activity (hands on), learn how to prepare local dishes. Great views of the Andes mountains and cloud forest.

I had an amazing experience with Richard and several locals in the cloud forest area (about 2 hour drive from Quito). First stop was visiting a dairy farm and milking two cows. Patricio and his mother showed me how to do so and patiently guided me. It was so much fun and the cows were docile; I felt very safe being near them. To me, this was my favorite experience for the whole day. Afterwards they gave me a bottle of the milk that I milked myself and we’re off to Rutty’s house to cook late breakfast/brunch. Rutty’s kitchen was spacious and sparkling clean. With Rutty’s guidance, I learned to cook local food – patacones, bolones de verde and tigrillo. We had lots of laughter here since I didn’t know how to cook, well, aside from boiling water. We ate at Rutty’s gigantic tree house with beautiful 360° view of the surrounding greenery. The drinks were arazá fruit juice, as well as fresh milk that we boiled. With full bellies, we’re back to Patricio’s property for some birding. They had a large area of land; some were turned into grassy pastures for the cows to graze, but most were left untouched. Birding here means looking for birds in their natural habitat, high up in the trees. Richard was prepared by bringing a high-powered telescope and a pair of binoculars. Even though it was raining, we still saw plenty of birds such as toucans (pale-mandibled aracari and other toucans), crested guans, ornate flycatchers, woodpeckers, tanagers and others. Aside from spotting beautiful birds, I truly enjoyed hiking here. It was so green and beautiful, with canyons, rivers, beautiful flowers and trees. As a side note, we also saw a tola, a man-made hill from Yumbo ethnic group, ancient people of the Andes as well as their ancient hiking trails. Last stop was at Victor and Florencia’s house to check out the tilapia farm. I was glad to see the fish swimming happily in spacious ponds (unlike industrial fish farms where they were more tightly packed). Victor proudly showed his facilities and I got to learn more about his small-scale, sustainable fish farm. This trip well exceeded my expectations; I felt totally immersed in a local community. They’re not used to having tourists, but they welcomed me warmly with open arms. The locals here proudly showed me their work and invited me to join and learn. I highly recommend this trip!
