This was the second lodge in our Magic Circle Birding Tour. We stayed here three nights. The room was superb. It was very comfortable and has a great view and lots of windows. The birdwatching areas and dining area are on a different (higher) level. The bird feeders were plentiful and attracted a lot of hummingbirds and other species. We...

The most beautifull lodge of the three I have visited. Very good food and service and at a beautifull location. Every day I walked in the forest next to the lodge and watched many birds. Lots to see. I had a very good guide who showed me many bird species. At the feeders near the restaurant I saw toucanets, hummingbirds,...

We stayed at Tandayapa as part of a package organised by San Jorge which also involved stays at the lodges at Quito and Milpe. The journey from Quito to Tandayapa took all day as we were looking at various locations on the way for birds and other wildlife. Normally my wife hates these stop start journeys where you all pile...

I have nothing but praise for the San Jorge Magic Birding Circuit and admiration for its General Manager and Owner Jorge Cruz. My wife and I spent time in three of the Magic Birding Circuit Lodges; Quito, Tandayapa and Milpe (for comments on Quito and Milpe see separate Trip Advisor posts). We were on a Senior Photographic Tour with added...

The trip over the mountains from the lodge in Quito to Tandayapa was an excellent birding experience in itself. I would have stayed up there all day, if the cloud level hadn't dropped and enveloped us in thick fog. The lodge at Tandayapa is on a steep hillside which gives good views from the open restaurant into the surrounding trees,...

This place was amazing !!! It was everything I had dreamed of when I first found out about the Magic Birding Circuit, and after talking to Cheryl and making arrangements to come on this birding tour, I couldn't have asked for better service all the way around. Cheryl was wonderful in setting this up for me, and everyone was just...

Taking the Magic Birding Circuit tour, our group voted this as one of our favorite spots. The proximity of the feeders allowed wonderful viewing and photographic opportunities for the many species of hummingbirds,tanagers and other birds. The new deck overlooking the forest also provided us views of raptors, parrots and toucanets. Our room with panoramic views was amazing, comfortable and...

My husband and I spent several days at this lodge and though a bit overwhelming being in the middle of nowhere in the subtropical forest, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a corner room with views overlooking the mountains. Our room was very nice. The eating area is an open covered area further up the path. There are feeders...
