Birdwatching & Birding Near Otavalo

While Otavalo is no Mindo (Ecuador’s birding capital), it’s not necessary to be a dedicated birdwatcher to be able to appreciate the many species present in the valley. Ask at the reception desk for a list of birds seen in our garden and surrounding areas. And if you have even the slightest interest in birds, a visit to Otavalo would not be complete without seeing a flight demonstration at Parque Condor, a nearby raptor rescue center.
