    I was recently watching a Gordon Buchanan documentary and came across Mashpi Eco-lodge just outside Quito in the cloud forest. It seems quite expensive but is one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever seen. It also has a cable car that travels over and through the canopy of the forests, allowing visitors to observe wildlife they wouldn't otherwise be able to see and the scientists that are based that to discover new species at an astonishing rate.

    Has anyone heard of it/been?
