Mindorado is a lush place to stay in the beautiful clouds forest of Mindo, 2.5 hours driving from Quito. Run by an enthousiastic ecuadorian-german, who manage this place with a lot of heart and mind! The cabins are simple but very clean, have hot water, are surrounded by lots of tipically plants and the sound of the forest! When you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are directly in The Forest Reservation of Mindo Nambilo, in the route Quito - Esmeraldas, a unique sanctuary for birds and exotic flowers, and one of few native hearths of toucans in the world. The end of the most popular tubing route in the Mindo river is in a beach justly opposite to us, facilitating this to change clothes and rest. The only road linking the village with all the attractions past in front of us, making it easy to come on foot to the waterfall, various routes of canopy, the butterfly zoo, as well as to different forests with chaquiñanes (footpath) and other private tracks. Mindo is a respectful picturesque shanty town that has a wide gastronomic offer much visited by international tourists, and only 5 minutes on foot. Strategically we are next to everything, but removed from the noise.The area known as Mindo – which encompasses the watersheds of the rivers Tandayapa, Nambillo and Mindo – is world-renowned as one of the most bird-diverse corners of the planet. But the birds wouldn’t thrive without an effusive, enigmatic and intact montane forest to call home (or even habitat). Divided by rivers to tube, raft and rappel, and criss-crossed with trails to blaze, trek and explore, the whole area is a world-class playground for lovers of the great outdoors.The Mindo area was declared the first “Important Area for Birds” (IBA) by BirdLife International, the NGO which works tirelessly for the conservation of birds and their habitats. This was in recognition of Mindo’s immensely rich forests. They harbour an estimated 500 species (more than all of Europe), including some 36 endemics. The popularity of the Mindo region has gone from strength to strength over the years. Quiteños visit to escape from the city, while international travellers come to enjoy its myriad attractions and activities.Its cloudforest environment is truly dramatic, tumbling down from the icy peaks of the Pichincha Volcano at nearly 4,600 metres to the steamy tropical rainforest at around 1,000 metres. This difference in elevation explains the very high biological diversity one encounters: there is a huge range of varying habitats between the elevations, each providing a niche for a species to exploit. Visitors do the same.The area’s list of lodging and activities has increased in tandem with the species of bird, amphibians and insect identified. There is now lodging for every style and budget, ranging from plush lodges with heated indoor swimming pools to rustic cabins with hammocks deep in the forest. Visitors can take to hundreds of kilometres of trails throughout the region.Activities to enjoy include birdwatching (of course!), trekking and camping, visits to orchidaria and butterfly farms and horseback riding. Making the most of the numerous rivers which cascade down from the volcanoes, operators offer rappelling and canyoning down waterfalls, tubing (sitting in a truck-size inner tube as the river carries you effortlessly downriver) and, further downstream, white-water rafting and kayaking. One of the best ways to appreciate the drama of the landscape and its island of forest (part of the Chocó-Andean ecological corridor) is to take the “EcoRuta del Quinde” route from the eastern flanks of the Pichincha Volcano from Quito. This passes over one of the highest roads in the country and down to the town of Nono, from where the views down towards the Pacific are truly breathtaking. The EcoRuta passes through the Tandayapa watershed, before joining the main highway from Quito to the coast further down. The town of Mindo lies about 20 minutes’ drive below the turn-off from the main Calacalí-La Independencia road, at Km78, in a lush valley surrounded by forested hills (so about two hours’ drive from Quito). We are looking forward to your visit and wish you a pleasant journey. ... more   less
