At the edge of the Tatama National Park is the Montezuma Lodge, which offers unsurpassed hospitality, magnificent feeders, and birding right from the lodge. On the Pacific slope of the western Andes, in the Choco Bioregion, the birding is done along a 13 km (8 m) road of pristine forest that covers a 1,400 m (4,600 ft)gradient. Of the more than 480 species that have been recorded on the road, 11 are endemic and more than 35 are near endemic. At least two full days of birding are required to fully enjoy this diversity hot spot.
