Visit of the andean cock of the rock lek


Everyday this amazing and unique (endemic to the choco region) bird starts to come out every morning, all year round to the historical place to court ship - with other males - to one or two females, this is what we call LEK.

We start at 05:45am our bird observation tour and it ends up around 7:30am.

Please let Rolando Garcia know about your visit, he will guide you through the forest to the lek. For this birdwatching tour he charges USD.10 per person.

Rolando speaks only spanish.

Help him and others to be proud of what is unique and doing this he will keep protecting part of the important cloudforest ecosystem, visit his private Las Cotingas Reserve.
