Ecuador travel

Kaony Lodge

  • Destination: Cloud Forest
  • Duration: 4 days

Kaony Lodge, near Puerto Quito, is a little off the beaten path—which means nothing is going to interfere with your enjoyment of the spectacular surroundings: the sounds of the birds and the river, the fresh air, and the first-rate service. One of our most interesting Ecuador cloud forest tours that offers great nature experiences, as well as chocolate making.


Information about Kaony Lodge
