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.
Kaony Lodge, located on the banks of the Caoní River, in the northwestern part of Pichincha Province, is surrounded by a 74-acre private nature preserve near Puerto Quito. Travel time from Quito by car is about 2 hours.
A hidden gem in the subtropical vegetation, Kaony Lodge offers its guests private cabins (cabañas) with bathrooms and hot water, two swimming pools, hammocks, and a restaurant. We have put together a special 4-day/3-night program for Kaony Lodge.
