This place is super. It's really worth a trip. They have a shaman worship place, incredible views and mountain walks. They have the densest population of Andean spectacled bears in the world. And amazing birdlife. The swarm of hummingbirds drinking from the waterfall was a real highlight... my only suggestion for improvement would be to have a fire in the evenings, and candlelit dinners. Other than that - it was perfect.

My husband and I loved staying at the Chiparri Ecolodge. Even though it’s only 70 km from Chiclayo, it felt very remote. The last few kilometers to the lodge are very rough, but gave us the chance to enjoy the unique plants, animals, and birds of the dry forest. Our driver was an excellent bird guide, so we were immediately able to begin birding as soon as we turned on to the access road to the lodge. As soon as we arrived, we were offered the opportunity to begin hiking around the reserve. We chose to wait until after a delicious lunch. As soon as we stepped away from the the lodge, a fox crossed our path, picaris (small wild pigs) ran through the forest, and the rescue bears (in a large enclosures) were fascinating to watch. The next morning, we woke up early to watch hummingbirds and to hike into the mountains to see more birds and wildlife. The lodge rooms were lovely - comfortable and clean. Crossing the rope bridge to reach them was fun. Relaxing in the porch hammock was a welcome treat. The guides were very skilled at finding and identifying birds. We were able to identify 15 life birds in just a few hours. We enjoyed all our meals at the lodge. We have various dietary restrictions and the cook, kindly accommodated them all. If you enjoy birding and are willing to literally get off the beaten path, we highly recommend Chiparri Ecolodge.

We are a family of four with two children aged 16 & 11. We landed at Chiclayo airport & were picked up by Joel, our fantastic guide & Roxanna who translated for us. It’s a bumpy trip there in a 4x4 over dry river beds but that’s part of the adventure. Then you get to the reserve & the ecolodges which are wonderful. We stayed in the superior lodge which was en-suite. It’s not posh but clean, comfortable & with a lovely hammock for relaxing. Also plenty of hot water. The kids loved the rope bridge & also the lovely small outdoor pool. Food was wonderful provided by Betty. We went on treks to see the rescued bears & learn about the healing culture of the area. Saw hummingbirds take early morning baths & hiked to see the Condor breeding program. All surrounded by fantastic bird life. This place was a real find. We feel privileged to have gone there. Thank you!

Stayed for 2 nights in early January and were very happy with all aspects of our stay. The reserve is purposely located well away from habitation and the 30 minute ride along the unmade and very bumpy road may not be ideal for some, but it really is worth the discomfort! The staff were friendly and Betty our cook produced some very tasty and varied food. Our guide Joel was knowledgeable and obviously passionate about the reserve and the welfare of the wildlife. The rooms are basic, but comfortable and the shower was good. At night it is totally black, so make sure you have a torch or mobile light. The stars in the inky sky were unforgettable ......... We walked a series of trails and saw many birds and of course the spectacle bears. These are not totally wild, but rescued and rehabilitating in large enclosures. Papa, Mama and Bebe - just like the fairytale! Oh yes, the boa relaxing in the kitchen roof was a bit of a shock, but it kept to itself! Total peace and quiet and highly recommended. Gracias a todos for looking after us and making our stay so enjoyable.

We arrived as a small group and we were looked after very well. The rooms were basic but the food was good. As for the reserve it is dry first with lots of birds such as white-winged guan and several species of owls. But we went there to see specialist dry forest birds, Whilst there we also saw Sechuran Fox. The lodge guides were very friendly and knowledgeable.
