The mindo cloud forest is an absolutely beautiful place if you like nature-related things. The activities offered are quite extensive compared to the rest of Ecuador but will keep you occupied for about 2 days... Highly recommendable are the waterfalls (with the Tabateria), the night...More

The whole area around Mindo is in gorgeous cloudforest. You can and should hire local guides like Julia Patinho or her sister, or the owner of the BioHostal Mindo, a simple clean convenient place in Mindo that now serves food, I understand.

You pay $5 to take the cable care (tarabita) to take you to the beginning of the hike. The trail is easy, I think between 5-7 kms only and it goes down all the way to the bottom of the trail where a few waterfall...More

The drive to the Forrest area is quite twisty and mountainous but very worth the trip. It's about 2 hours from downtown Quito. Our guide for the day was Lincoln Jabra and he made the trip a fantastic one! We would highly recommend having a...More

Pay for the cabalgata tour in the Mindo Canopy. I also recommend hiking about 10k to the cascada in the canopy and stopping along the way at the bird reserve for hummingbirds.

This was by far the best bird diversity site I visited during 5 days birding around mindo. If you get tired of walking the trails the bird feeders provide great hummingbird numbers.

It more than two hours hour trip from Quito by car. You have a very nice scenery after you have left the city, partly in the cloud forest itself. The cable car tour in the tree tops was short but fascinating experience. The walk down...More

Sorry. We are a mature couple. We visited Mindo without a guide. Sorted ourselves out once there and didn't feel we needed a guide. Hopped on a bus in Quito and stayed for 4 days. Loved it. Hope you do.
