Very nice place, nature is beautiful and well preserved, the people who take care of the site are very nice and the entrance fee is pretty good ($3 per adult, $1.5 for children). Be prepared for a 20 min walk downhill, then 35 min on...More

I arrived alone in the afternoon and inquired if there was time to walk around or best to return tomorrow. 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...More

To go to Mindo is to open a door to adventure. We dare to canopy and then trek down to the cascade. A very liberating and very wet afternoon experience but so much fun. Pack your bags, have a couple of comfortable walking shoes, comfortable...More

A lovely way to spend half a day, the outing starts and ends with a short but scenic cable car ride. Then you can choose how many of the seven waterfalls you want to visit, depending on how much time and energy you have. They're...More

We ran from cascade to cascade through the rugged mix of man-made and natural paths, adding a sense of adventure to the beautiful falls. There's an option to take the Tarrabita across directly to the Falls, but if you're up for the trek, walking is...More

We visited several of the waterfalls. If you have to choose, take the path to the 5/6 consecutive waterfalls. The trails are easy. We recommend to take at least half a day and have a picnic by the waterfalls.

These waterfalls were discovered by the owner who laid the trails and opened them to the public. There is 5 waterfalls all together and many people just go to the first big one. The walk is difficult for those with immobility issues.

This park is really nice, located about 6km from Mindo town. You can get there by private vehicle or taxi. It costs $5/person to enter. We took the trail to the first waterfall, and found it slippery due to the rainfall the previous evening. It...More

Yes, there is a path. A little hidden and the people selling the tickets for the Tarabita are not eager to point it out. Instead of walking Right to the ticket office, look LEFT and the path is just along the edge of a... More
