I grew up (my childhood) in a farm located in the cloud forest. Since 2001, I started to work in tourism then I studied tourism, got my credentials and ready to work. My last 9 years working together with local people from the northwestern part from Quito city and discovering a great way of living naturally.
I would love to share with you the nature bounties !

What a magical experience! We met early in the morning at the Hilton Colon hotel. The clerks working the front desk will let you in and there is a hotel restaurant to catch a coffee (breakfast was expensive, 25 dollars so I opted out). Be sure to bring some Dramamine or altitude sickness medicine if you are fresh off a plane - the trip goes around mountains and is a bit zig-zaggy. Richard stopped at a pharmacy with me to get some medicine, which was nice. Pack some snacks since you won't eat until lunch time. The sanctuary you will visit is a finca owned by a cute and highly knowledgeable couple (Erika and Jonathan). We walked through a rain forest, surrounded by orchids, birds, mushrooms, and tropical plants. We walked over a bamboo bridge, saw some gorgeous cascading waterfalls, and had the opportunity to do a Tarzan jungle swing over the water. Maybe you want to wear a swimsuit if you want to take a quick dip into the natural pool. I think we missed the tropical fruit tasting experience because the walk took longer than anticipated (probably my fault since I wanted to observe every mushroom we found). We stopped at a cute place for lunch where they served me a very healthy and beautiful vegan meal. Know that you will need to pay for your own lunch (6 dollars) and also the entry fee to the finca (7 dollars), which I wasn't expecting. We didn't do a fruit tasting (again, probably due to my mushroom photography), so I am guessing future guests will be able to experience this part of the package. Richard speaks English very well, and I was able to practice my Spanish with him (he was patient with me - this was so much more than an exploration of Ecuadorian birds - you will learn about and see all sorts of regional culture if you wish). Overall, this was a great full-day experience where you can truly immerse yourself in nature with people who care deeply about preserving the natural places of Ecuador.
