The Junin Cloud Forest Reserve is located on the western slopes of the Andes in northern Ecuador. Our primary forests are in the Intag Region of the Imbabura Province. Hundreds of species of flora and fauna, gorgeous waterfalls and a friendly, neighboring community make Junin a great place for travelers, volunteers, scientists, conservationists and more.
Whether you come to bird watch, hike, relax in our hammocks, see our Orchid garden, help us maintain our trails, practice your Spanish, teach English or learn about alternative farming, we would be glad to have you come and stay in our cabins! Our cabins are located within the primary forest and are run entirely by locals. All profits made through Junin's Ecolodge directly contribute to the successful campaign against mining in the area.
