We are American expats living in Quito for three months as part of a world tour during which we are trying out possible retirement destinations. Shortly after arriving with an Ecuadorian friend from the United States, we accepted a suggestion from his cousin that we make a two-day excursion out to the Cloud Forest around Mindo, overnighting there, to see...

We liked the place very much. The lodge is nice there is one cabin next to the river but honestly the sound is too strong at night to sleep the staff is very kind. The food is good. We had an excellent time! They have some kids play sets like pool, air hockey, table soccer and is conveniently located very... More

It was a bit of an adventure getting to Mindo Garden. We organised the taxi driver who picked us up on arrival at Quito (3 days later) to take us to Mindo for $100 U.S (for 3 people). Alvaro was an amazing amateur tour guide as well! He had never been to Mindo so he enjoyed the opportunity to see... More

No one answer the phone or the email on the website. I did an online reservation and found out that the reservation was not done at all one day before the trip. So the website doesn't work at all. I'm sorry but i wouldn't recommend a place like this at all.

There are a lot of options in Mindo for hotels, hostels and inns. I've stayed in many of them - and highly recommend Mindo Garden. It's a tranquil oasis outside of town - and close to the butterfly habitat. We stayed in the Bird House (casa de aves) - there are three adorable bedrooms (each with its own private bathroom)...

We spend 3 nights here, if you have your own car it is an ideal place to be, far from the noice, good food, even better breakfast, nice birds in the garden, nice people and decent houses, the only thing is that the houses are split and that the walks between them are not very thick (but the water of...

My wife and I spend the final 2 days of our honeymoon here and could not have asked for a better experience. We woke up to hummingbirds outside of our windows, saw many different types of birds on the property, saw an armadillo, and used their private hiking trails across the river. The staff was very helpful in finding hikes,... More

In July this month my wife Shelley and I had an overnight stay at Mindo Garden which was arranged by our host at B&B Tumbaco.

Mindo Garden was a wonderful place to stay! First, the location is wonderful, tucked into the jungle. Each room is in a little cabin, with the river just beyond. It is absolutely peaceful to sleep to at night. I will warn, there are lots of bugs outside, but that comes with being in the jungle! The staff were amazingly accomodating.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Surrounded by hummingbirds and washed by the peaceful sound of Mindo’s river, this is a place specially designed to help you disconnect from your daily life. We're far enough from the town of Mindo to provide that peace but close enough so you won't feel isolated. You can come and simply relax on a family day at our renowned restaurant, or leave everything to our organization and explore the secrets of the cloud forest through walks on our private paths and hikes to the area's greatest points of interest. ... more   less
