I did this my first night and it was the perfect introduction. A taxi takes you well out of town in the full dark. You can bring a flashlight or one is provided for you. You then walk slowly through forested trails and see frogs as well as many other insects and flora. The tour lasted about 2 hours, went... More

they day we went the restaurant was closed which was disappointing. They charge 5$ and they give you a walk in the dark through the woods,

On the day that I went the tour was entirely in Spanish, but one of the other people on the tour was able to translate a little. It was a little underwhelming - we saw a few spiders, a few tiny frogs, a couple of sleeping birds (this was definitely the highlight) and the phosphorescent wood. A lovely concept -... More

This is a must see attraction- so many different types of frogs. This was so unusual to see. You won't be sorry.

I enjoyed the tour. It was nice to learn about different frogs and animals from people who really care about them. I wen't when there were lots of people which unfortunately limited what I was able to see, but I would recommend it. If you are looking for a romantic night, you can have dinner on a boat in the...

Shot glass of wine on arrival, yum. Saw a few different species of frogs and spiders, difficult without a torch each though, didn't want to use a phone torch in case I dropped it in the lake. We were asked not to take photos, which was a shame.Basically a half hour walk around the Lago Mindo grounds hunting for wildlife.... More

In and of itself, this tour was very nice. They gave us a shot glass of wine before starting and did the intro in Spanish and English. We saw lots of frogs and bugs, as promised. The location is also within walking distance at night. If you're bringing children, I'd highly suggest this tour. The other nightwalk was a bit... More

This was a nighttime nature walk where the guide found small frogs and spiders with his flashlight and told us about them. He was very knowledgeable, and the area was gorgeous, but this was by far the least exciting thing we did while in Mindo. There is not much to do at night there though. Be sure to wear a... More

The frog concert was, perhaps, one of my favorite things about my 2-week visit to Ecuador. The setting is AWE INSPIRING, the nature walk was so informative, and the food was OUT OF THIS WORLD!! Yet again, another "must" experience for visitors to Mindo.
