We will head southwards of Cuenca into the Yungilla Valley, an inter-Andean valley which marks a transition to the coastal plain, with different climatic zones and ecosystems: the western Andean foothills, the subtropical valley and the desert like zone.
It is also the doorway to the Tumbesian region. Crimson-mantled Woodpecker, Stripped Owl, the endemic Tumbesian Pacific Elania and the Pale-headed Brush-Finch, were rediscovered in 1998 and they are quite common in the area. A preferred resting area for the “cuencanos” during weekends; its wonderful subtropical weather (between 65 and 77 Fº), the characteristic tomatoes and oranges orchards and the sugar cane plantations, as well as the nearby waterfalls on the Girón area are symbols of this peaceful spot. Lunch is included in this Yungilla Valley and waterfalls full day tour. Book now .
