The Pululahua Geobotanical Reserve and itīs surrounding areas like Nono, Mindo, Maquipucuna, Tandayapa, and many others, make an excellent place for butterfly watching tours.  There are multiple quiet and remote areas where you can find unique and exotic butterflies.

We provide specialized tours for those interested in capturing a  photo of that exotic butterfly.  We offer a comfortable and 100% ecological stay in our cabaņas.  We do not catch or preserve!

On September of 2008 we received the pleasant visit of three members of The Hong Kong Lepidopterists Society who helped us gather this impressive photographic record of butterflies; we found samples of the following families: Papilionidae (Swallowtails), Pieridae (Whites and Yellows), Riodinidae (Metalmark, Punches and Judies), Nymphalidae (Brush-footed), Lycaenidae (The Blues), Hesperiidae (The Skippers)
