Tanagers Reserve, Colombia

Partner - ProAves

Located just four hours southwest of Colombia's second largest city, Medellin, the 8,576 acre Tanagers Reserve represents one of the last strongholds for the Endangered Golden-ringed Tanager. With an estimated global population of fewer than 500 adults, the bird is known to inhabit only five locations worldwide, all of which are found along the 150-mile ridge on the Pacific slope of the Western Andes of Colombia. Whether you are a casual birder, ornithologist, or simply a nature enthusiast, the Tanagers Reserve offers remarkable opportunities for birding with 260+ documented species, in a country with the most avian species in the world!

Yellow-breasted Antpitta by Hugo Arnal

The Chocó rainforest contains one of the highest concentrations of range-restricted biodiversity in the world, with many birds, plants, and amphibians at risk of extinction. The facilities at Las Tángaras provide the perfect setting for visitors to experience the incredible diversity of rare and little-known biodiversity in one of the least-studied rainforests on Earth.

After a day of birding visitors relax at the lodge and restaurant with breathtaking balcony views of the Quebrada La Sánchez, a tributary of the Atrato River, the most important river in the Chocó region.
