Ecuador

  Tour Overview
For sheer high numbers and an incredible diversity of birds on a short trip, it is very hard to beat Ecuador. Boasting a bird list of over 1,800 species, Ecuador has entrenched itself as a premier South American birding destination, and one of the top worldwide birding hotspots.

Ecuador has a wide variety of faunal zones, including some of the richest on this planet, each with its characteristic birds. The great infrastructure, spectacular scenery and friendly people make an Ecuador birding trip a highly productive and enjoyable experience. The Chocó is an eco-region and biodiversity hotspot in Northern Ecuador that holds the largest number of restricted-range birds of any Endemic Bird Area in the Americas, with an incredible 62 species being endemic to the area.
