Rumi Wilco Ecolodge & Nature Reserve Reviews


Rumi wilco started in the nineties offering Vilcabamba visitors a chance to lodge in a natural setting which is very near the center of town. Eventually, due to the area´s valuable attributes, it was declared "Protective Forest and Vegetation" by the Ecuadorean government.
Since then, a series of conservation activities were started and the Ecolodge grew to receive both travellers and volunteers in a self-sustainable project that at present includes a 7K nature trail system, wooden cabins on stilts, adobe rooms, camping facilities, fully equiped kitchens, natural drinking water, outdoor fireplaces, hammocks, river access and truly lovely surroundings.
Bird watchers, photographers and people who love peaceful, scenic lodges will surely enjoy Rumi Wilco´s wild, yet benign atmosphere.
