Mindo is truly one of the most beautiful spots in Ecuador. Two days are ideal to enjoy the nature in a relaxed manner, however, if you're short on time, you can enjoy its best spots in a day.
We got a taxi from Mindo to the tarabita. So pleased we did. I suffer when at altitude and climbing up to it would have been terrible. We took the tarabita across to the other side. I didn't look down but Peter said it was a fantastic! We started the walk to the series of cascades. It was a hot... 更多
We visited here as part of a birding tour and loved it. Even in the rain we could watch the birds up close while under the shelter. There is a small gift shop with T-shirts and books.
This place offers great canopy views of the cloud forest and several rivers. The birds and flora are very unique and the hiking trails were well-kept and easy to navigate.

I also asked if I could be directed to the walking path to Nambillo and come back the next day for the Tarabita and other waterfalls walk.

The cable car ride alone is worth the trip. The cloud forest is absolutely beautiful and the waterfalls were great for a refreshing dip after all the... 更多
Highly recommend visiting Mindo, even staying a few nights in this tranquil town. There are several nature hikes to visit waterfalls, river tubing, a butterfly garden where you can also observe beautiful toucans and hummingbirds, as well as zip lining. The zip lining was a lot of fun and provides for beautiful views. Restaurant at the butterfly garden is slightly... 更多
The driver need not look at anything but the road. The drop off the side of the road is rather unforgiving. Great vistas. Not suggested for night driving.
