Huembo Interpretation Center
The Huembo Interpretation Center is located within a conservation easement of 39 hectares (96 acres) established in 2005, near the town of La Florida Pomacochas. This reserve is owned by the local community and managed by ECOAN. It protects remnant forest patches that provide habitat for resident and migratory birds and other wildlife. It lies within the Utcubamba River Valley, recognized by the Alliance for Zero Extinction as a conservation priority due to the presence of the Marvelous Spatuletail (Loddigesia mirabilis), probably the most spectacular of all the hummingbirds.

ECOAN has established an agroforestry demonstration plot in reserve, to demonstrate to local farmers how to cultivate shade coffee, fruit trees, passion fruit, and other agro-forestry products in a way that will restore ecological trees and other landscape features. ECOAN has also worked with neighboring communities to establish community tree nurseries and promote the use of silvipasture, living fences, and shade-coffee to restore native trees to degraded landscapes surrounding Huembo.

The facilities at Humebo include a visitor center with a small museum and public restrooms. Huembo also offers several small rooms with bathrooms for overnight guests. A trail system leads visitors through a variety of themed botanical gardens (edible, medicinal plants, bromeliads, orchids), hummingbird feeding stations, and overlooks. Visitors staying at Huembo may also be interested in visiting the nearby Gocta Falls (the world’s 3rd tallest waterfall) about an hour away. Alternatively, visitors staying at Owlet Lodge (also an hour away) can visit Huembo as a day or half day trip.

Important: Smoking is prohibited inside buildings and on the trails at Huembo to reduce the risk of forest fires. Smoking is only allowed outside on the hard surfaced patios.

Prices
Entry fee for the day: A day pass allows visitors to use the visitor center, trails and other outdoor facilities offered in the reserve in the 6:00 to 18:00 hours. USD $10.00 for foreign visitors.
