Parque C贸ndor Otavalo - Birdwatching Otavalo - Ecuador

Parque C贸ndor is a non-profit wildlife refuge for owls and raptors, including the endangered Andean Condor. It seeks to rescue, protect and rehabilitate these birds and, if possible, release them back into the wild. Those that cannot be released become the stars of an educational bird show held twice a day (at 11:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., though times may change depending on the weather). The show gives visitors the opportunity to observe these beautiful creatures in flight, and allows the park to inform visitors about the importance of environmental conservation.

From Parque C贸ndor you get stunning views of the Imbabura and Cotacachi volcanoes, San Pablo Lake and the towns of Otavalo and Cotacachi. The park also has a small restaurant and a playground. You can get there by taxi (about $3-4 from Otavalo) or take the exit to San Pablo Lake off the Panamericana Highway. If you鈥檙e up for a little physical exertion, you can hike from Otavalo up to the park (around an hour); just ask the locals the best way to go. It can get cold in the park, so dress appropriately. Sunscreen and bug spray are also a good idea. Note that it is forbidden to bring pets or food into the park.
