Inside the monument, there is a small museum that displays elements of Ecuador's indigenous culture, such as clothing, ethnic groups and samples of their activities. An exciting place for birding, here bird lovers will find a place similar also to Mindo, the world famous reserve for its concentration of opportunities. The bright blue sky and dark green forested mountains provided an impressive backdrop to a garden filled with flowering plants, low shrubs and a few trees tall enough to offer interest and perching places for the birds, as well as bird feeders where birds flitted among the trees and near the feeder located just in front of a table.
