Welcome to the private Ecological Reserve Bombolí. This beatiful cloud forest is cared for by an Ecuadorian couple who firmly believes in the conservation and preservation of nature. Oswaldo (Oswaldito) Haro Aguirre, 72, and his wife Mariana (Marianita) Pérez, 62, bought this property over 34 years ago with only one goal in mind, to restore the land. Never did they imagine that the reserve would gain such recognition. The name “Bombolí” was second in line for this paradise, first was “El Eden” or “Eden” but Oswaldito was not satisfied with the name. He thought the name should be more significant, which is why he chose “Bombolí” keeping it basic and naming it after the hill it is on. The hill has a shape like a “bomba” or a balloon.
The Ecological Reserve Bombolí consists of 110 acres of primary forest and 80 acres of secondary forest at an altitude of 3,200 meters above sea level. Here we can observe over 200 species of orchids and 4 different types of ferns. A variety of birds can also be found in this high altitude Cloudforest. In addition numerous waterfalls also reign in this paradise.
