The Long-whiskered Owlet (Xenoglaux loweryi) was rediscovered after 35 years of being presumed extinct. One of the smallest owls in the world, it can be easily found in the Abra Patricia-Alto Nieva zone. This owl is the size of a clenched fist and can barely be seen with the naked eye, since it camouflages with its branches and moss habitat. In order to observe it we use a technique known as play-back and depend on our experienced guides to help us observe the owls briefly with a focused flashlight.
We have three comfortable cabins each has a small lobby, spacious rooms with wood finishes and windows to observe the scenery. We have a capacity for 18 tourists and 8 people of staff. The accommodation includes full power.
Our facilities have more than three thousand hectares of natural protected areas, a tower of more than twelve meters in height, a restaurant and reading room. We are surrounded by hummingbird drinkers and mammal feeders, with five walking trails.
We have four trails of more than one kilometer each well signposted, where you can see closely and in its natural habitat variety of birds, mammals, and other endemic species. Living in harmony with nature.
