A lovely walk in nature with beautiful cascades. Worth a visit if you are in Mindo. Take a thin rain coat.

I had the most beautiful day here trekking the forest and selection of waterfalls. The first trek takes one hour but its the most quiet of all the waterfalls so its a must visit. The other waterfalls are closer together and can get a little...More

I may be a bit jaded, but this was a disappointment. It is an average waterfall with a fair amount of clutter around it. Add in a long downhill/uphill hike and I am not sure it is worth the effort.

Extremely beautiful hiking trails with 5 amazing waterfalls. We hiked to each, and all were different, and worth the time and energy. Highly recommend this! Wear hiking shoes, Bring a bathing suit and have a great time!

You have to get to the Quito Olefia-Norte Terminal Terrestre to get the $3.10 bus to Mindo. I took the Quito city buses, and you should be on your game or you'll pay in time because you need to get there early. A day trip...More

You must see this. But be aware, it can be tough and it's a long hike. But worth every second. Bring clothes to swim and change into. You have to jump in. the water is cool, but nothing like New England. It's warmer.

Mindo has a bit of everything, a bit of waterfalls, a bit of hiking, a bit of rivertubing etc. That is nice for rookies to the jungle, and people on a daytrip from Quito. But although it has a lot of a bit, it has...More

Choose one of three hikes. Shortest is 30 minutes longest 90. Take the shorter unless it's a cool day. Beautiful waterfalls to be seen

We took the Tarabita cable car to start our hike. It only took a few minutes and had a great view. One of the dogs at the business even hopped on for the ride across! Once you get across there are three different paths you...More
