    The new international airport, which is now located outside of Quito, and conveniently closer to the east slope, allows many of our guests to head straight out to the lodge upon arrival.

    From the airport one takes the Via Interoceanica east past the town of Pifo. From here the road will soon climb up to the continental divide (about 30-40 minutes from the airport) and then dramatically drop down-slope again, passing through the small towns of Papallacta and Cuyuja. After about an hour-and-a-half, watch for the obvious right hand turn-off (just past the gas stations and police check-stop) to the south that leads to the towns of Baeza, Cosanga, and Tena. After passing through Baeza, continue for about 20 minutes , where there is a side road to the right just before the small town of Cosanga.



    There is a "San Isidro" sign here. Drive up this road for about three kilometers until the large San Isidro sign which can't be missed on the left.

  • Thanks to the recent paving of the roads to San Isidro, as well as to the rest of eastern Ecuador, getting here and moving around is much easier; bumpy, gravel roads are a thing of the past!.

    The scenery is spectacular all the way down, with steep and forest-cloaked mountains, and there are even some great stops along the way, like rose plantations, thermal springs, and fabulous hummingbird feeding stations.

    These areas are legendary in the birding world and will greatly add to your list of bird possibilities and your Ecuador experience. Box lunches can be provided for any of these half-day or full-day excursions.
