Cabañas San Isidro is the ideal mountain get away for anyone looking to disconnect from civilization and surround themselves by gorgeous forest, unparalleled scenery and sensational food in a comfortable lodge atmosphere - peace and tranquillity at its best. The reserve offers kilometers of well marked and maintained forest trails that will lead you through a variety of habitat zones typical of the region, including some of the most beautiful, accessible, and well preserved montane humid forest to be found anywhere on the east slope of the Andes; you wouldn't want to miss a stroll down the trails below the cabins that teem with wildlife.
Our guests run the entire interest spectrum, from serious birders and researchers, to casual nature lovers, and even first-timers to the cloud forest who are just as likely to indulge in one of the lodge’s cooking clases. There is a niche for everybody, and we’ll see to it that you find yours!
San Isidro’s cabins and reserve are nestled in the picturesque Quijos Valley, one of the westernmost headwaters of the Amazon basin - in Napo province and only 2 about hours from the airport - at an elevation of about 2,050m (6,800 ft.) above sea level in a zone still mostly blanketed by extensive humid forest.
This combination of factors means agreeable temperaturas, exciting birds, and a diversity of other wildlife, including the potential for large mammals.
