Description

Mindo is a rural parish located just 2 hours from Quito (80 km – 48 miles), in Los Bancos canton in the province of Pichincha. Mindo is known for its famous growth in ecotourism based in the Mindo – Nambillo Protected Forest. The beautiful landscapes and the exuberant flora and fauna of this cloud forest attract all types of travelers and adventurers. Mindo is located between a high altitude zone and the rainforest which gives the place excellent biodiversity characteristics. You can find more than 500 species of birds, orchids, bromeliads, and more than 40 species of butterflies. The temperature fluctuates around 15ºC – 24ºC (60ºF – 75ºF).

We will start early in Quito taking the Middle of the World – Calacalí – Los Bancos – Esmeraldas highway. When we will get to Mindo, we will first visit the butterfly farm. This farm has some of the most beautiful butterflies that can be seen in Ecuador. There, you can also see orchids, birds, but most importantly the hummingbird. Afterwards, we will go on an ecological walk where we will observe wonderful waterfalls and be able to take a dip in the pools or rivers. Then we will be off to a spectacular set of zip lines! This is not for the faint-hearted. Finally, after lunch, you will get the chance to visit the famous Mindo chocolate factory. This tour offers you an insight into the products and produce. It is also a nice way to try some delicious chocolate.
