Quito, the capital of Ecuador, has confirmed it will be present at Bird Fair 2014 with an institutional stand, to promote to the British market great opportunities for bird watchers to observe more than 500 species of Ecuadorian birds, in one of the world’s most beautiful destinations.
Quito, which is a candidate to become one of the Seven Wonder Cities of the world, will offer leaflets, maps, booklets, books and a screen with images and videos, in order to attract British birdwatchers and tour operators with the amazing variety of its wildlife, and stunning natural landscapes which make the ideal backdrop for this activity.
The best location for bird watching in Quito is the stunning protected forest of Mindo-Nambillo, where visitors can take advantage of the highly developed infrastructure to enjoy a complete holiday, including hotels and lodges, a wide and wonderful range of culinary options, alluring rivers perfect for relaxing or for adventure sports, and the opportunity to see not only birds but a vibrant ecosystem of exotic flora and fauna.
The event will take place during three consecutive days at Egleton Nature Reserve in Rutland, East Midlands, from August 15th.
A total of 300 stands from leading destinations, hotels and lodges, tour operators, specialist publications and equipment producers and sellers from around the world will show off their goods and services to avid bird watchers from Britain, Europe and beyond.
Quito was this week recognised as South America’s Leading Destination by the World Travel Awards.
