  • For those with additional time, we highly recommended our Key Endemics in Cajas and Yungilla Extension, which adds 5 days to the tour and visits many birdy sites around Saraguro, Cajas National Park, and the Yungilla Reserve. We also can arrange many other extension options, including excursions to Peru, if you so desire.
