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.
