Ecuador - Cloud Forest Lodges
FIND YOUR PERFECT CLOUD FOREST LODGE
Ecuador Cloud Forest Lodges
For those who are afraid of spiders, mosquitoes and reptiles: the mountain cloud forest east and west of the Andean mountain slopes would be an excellent choice to stay close to nature. While the surroundings are similar to the Amazon rainforest, a large variety of birds endemic to the rainforest are also found here. The small town of Mindo on the western slope of the Andes is a hotspot in the cloud forest. Ecuador has many flagship projects in these regions in which secondary cloud forest is converted back into primary cloud forest. The best examples are the Mashpi Lodge and the Maquipucuna Foundation. Below, we have included our favorite selection of Amazon Cloud Forest lodges in Ecuador. You can also speak to our Ecuador Specialist to help you find the one most suitable for you! Our tours in the cloud forest range from 2 to 6 days, where you can fully immerse in nature while enjoying the luxury of the lodges, so comfortable nestled in the heart of Ecuador.
