  • Few places in the world offer as many biological, landscape and climatic singularities as Podocarpus National Park in southern Ecuador. A visit to the administrative center, in Cajanuma (via Vilcabamba) is a relatively easy approach to this place of wonder.

  • Terrible!!,, bad treatment of the tourist. A lot of us come from so much for nothing. we arrived at the place at 4 pm, and they were closing, they didn't let us through, even though the sign at the entrance indicated they closed at 5 pm, they put a chain and they wouldn't let us in, they said they closed at 3:30 pm

  • This national park fills in much of the triangle between Loja, Zamora and Vilcabamba, as well as a huge swath to the southeast. Because altitude ranges so greatly within the park borders – from around 900m in the lowland sector to over 3600m in the highland sector – Podocarpus has some of the greatest plant and animal diversity in the world.
