Full Day Tour: Mindo
The Mindo cloud forest is one of the most stunning destinations in Ecuador. This cloud forest is part of a very unique ecosystem, considered to be one of the richest in diversity of birds and plants. Its location close to the city of Quito makes it one of the most famous destinations for nature lovers. Here you will not only enjoy the fascinating beauty of the forest, but you will also have the opportunity to do some outdoor activities. It’s a fun journey for the entire family and a relaxing place where you will be in harmony with nature.
Early in the morning, your guide will pick you up to travel for approximately 100 km (62 miles) to the small town of Mindo. In Mindo, we will visit a portion of the cloud forest known to the locals as the “Sanctuary of Waterfalls” because of the different waterfalls present in this private protected area. While here, we will do a hike to the closest waterfalls, as your guide talks about the different plants and animals that live here. Mindo waterfalls are easy to reach, and if you like you can swim in some of them. In ancient times, the wise men used to believe that bathing in these waters would restore your positive energy and cleanse your body of any negative energy.
After trekking through this charming forest, we will return to Mindo for lunch, and after that we’ll visit the butterfly garden. Here you will be able to observe many different species of butterflies that live in the cloud forest, and you’ll also be able to watch them in each stage of their growing process, from small larva to incredible butterflies with gorgeous colors.
