Pacha Quindi which means “Hummingbird Place” in Quichua (a native language of South America) has been diligently working for nearly two decades to create this unique hummingbird garden. The Hummingbird Garden at Pacha Quindi has become a world renowned birding destination, especially since many of the hummingbirds found within the Endemic Bird Area of the Choco Region thrive here. Pacha Quindi is situated in the Tandayapa Valley of NW Ecuador. The Hummingbird Garden is centrally located between Bella Vista Lodge and Tandayapa Bird Lodge, thus it is an ideal place to visit for guests staying at either lodge.
