Cabañas Aliñahui

Cabanas Alinahui in Quito EcuadorCabanas Alinahui (pronounced Ah-lin-ya-wee) is located on a bluff 150 feet above the Napo River, a major tributary of the Amazon, flowing out from the eastern base of the Ecuadorian Andes.

Alinahui means "beautiful view" in the indigenous Quichua language; in keeping with its name, the Lodge has panoramic views of the river, the Andes and three snow-capped volcanoes. The surrounding forest is renown for its exceedingly rich diversity of plant and animal species - perhaps the richest on earth. Bird watchers will delight in the possibility of seeing and hearing many of the more than 500 species which inhabit our forest. Nature lovers and scientists return to study and marvel at the vast inventory of Ailanthus's tropical life.
