Bellavista Cloud Forest
Lodge & Reserve


Bellavista offers comfortable lodging, its own 700 hectare (2000 acres) private reserve, as well as tasty and varied cuisine and fine wines.

The Colombo-British owners and all who work here believe in genuinely friendly, personal service. We strive to offer the elements for your own special experience both for you and for those accompanying you. Ecotourism as it trully should be: options to explore the many trails of our own reserve with our naturalist guides, or indeed alone…!

Birding, giant tree ferns, cascading waterfalls, the enigmatic Olinguito, fantastic views of forest and plunging valleys.

Come for a few days, or, if time is truly short, for just a day trip.

Explore our forest and then expand your experience with trips to other cloud forest highlights of the Northwest: Cock-of-the-Rock, Umbrellabird, canpy zipline and more waterfallls.
