Getting to the Canandé Lodge

Rio Canandé Reserve is located roughly 5 driving hours from Quito. Take the Quito-Calacalí-Pedro Vicente Maldonado-La Independencia road. In Pedro Vicente Maldonado, take a secondary road towards Golondrinas, passing by La Celica. At Golondrinas, take a dirty road to La Te settlement and take a detour to Zapallo; then turn right towards the Canandé River, to a place known as Puerto Nuevo. Here, you will need to cross the river in a barge owned by Botrosa Timber Company (you will need a signed permission from Jocotoco Foundation’s office in Quito to get into the barge of Puerto Nuevo). The Reserve is 45 minutes further, on the road to Hoja Blanca. Road signs of Jocotoco Foundation will be found two km before getting to Agua Blanca.
