Bellavista Cloud Forest - a nature lovers and birdwatchers dream

Bellavista is at the southern edge of the Choco/Andean hotspots of biodiversity - that stretches from south western Colombia to northwestern Ecuador. And equally important, Bellavista is part of the Mindo Area of International Importance for Birds, the first area so designated in South America, by Birdlife International in 1997.Bellavista is a dream come true, for every nature lover and bird-watcher whose imagination is stimulated by the idea of a Cloud Forest. A certified ecolodge it exists within a 700 hectare private reserve full of endemic birds, mammals, orchids and other species.

The Trailhead House / German House (3 rooms)
This construction of brick and wood built by young Germans experts fits beautifuilly into the surrounding forest landscape. We have included large windows for watching the birds come and go. The house has two floors and is decorated in our very own Bellavista style. It can accommodate a family of 6 on the second floor and has a couple of very cosy double rooms on the first floor.
