Mindo

Mindo is an incredibly dense cloud forest, a magical place where moss clings to the foliage to create a lush environment where a vast array of birdlife, butterflies and orchids thrive.
Birders particularly will love this cloud forest; there are over 500 bird species living in this unique habitat.  In just a few days here you will spot a variety of toucans, hummingbirds and quetzals, among many others.
 
Alongside the pagent of birdlife, there are cascading waterfalls, many nature trails and a couple of spots to try some light rafting.
 
You can reach Mindo in around 3 hours from the capital Quito; a relatively short journey to witness a completely different habitat.


The best of Mindo


Ideally located only three hours from Quito, Mindo will give you a fantastic experience of another ecosystem again. Mindo is a must for birders, who will be in their element.

Dotted around the cloud forest are a number of very comfortable lodges, all of which are great bases from which to explore the forest and all it has to offer.
