For budget-minded travelers (for a minimum of 4 people) with an adventurous edge, we offer a self-catering hostel, as well as private camping areas within the reserve. The hostel, open year-round, doubles as a research station . It is a simple but comfortable facility, with the same trails and the same vastness of forest. 20 / 30 minutes walk from the main lodge area.
Scientists are very welcome! We encourage study groups and retreats, and for student groups (any age), Bellavista at only 2 hours from Quito is ideal for a study program - ask for details!!
