Mindo

When you travel to Ecuador, a visit to Mindo during your Ecuador vacations will open you up to the wonderful world of the Ecuadorian cloudforest. A Mindo tour to the cloud forest is a favourite amongst nature lovers and birders.

The small town of Mindo on the western slopes of the Andes is a mecca for bird-watchers. In the dense surrounding cloud forest some 450 species have been observed, including the fabulous scarlet-crested Andean Cock of the Rock, the toucan barbet, the plate-billed mountain toucan and the velvet-purple coronet.

But you don't have to be a dedicated ‘twitcher’ to appreciate Mindo's charm. If you prefer, you can simply sit back and enjoy the wondrous experience of being in this magical environment, surrounded by butterflies, orchids and hummingbirds. Wander forest paths observing the unique ecosystem of the western slopes of the Andes, enjoying nature at its most abundant.
