Mindo Nambillo Cloud Forest Reserve, Mindo
(4.9/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Lush rolling mountainsides and wispy clouds set a surreal scene at Mindo Nambillo Cloud Forest Reserve. This nature reserve provides a more accessible counterpart to the nearby rainforests, while still brimming with many bird species, orchids, butterflies, waterfalls, ferns, and lush green vegetation. The reserve also offers many activities, including hiking, rappelling, tubing, mountain biking, canyoning, and ziplining. The warm, wet cloud forest (also known as a fog forest) also has lots of insects, so don't forget insect repellant and waterproof clothing. Consider exploring the reserve with the help of a local guide for the fullest experience. Plan your visit to Mindo Nambillo Cloud Forest Reserve and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Mindo tour planner.

  • A very small town located 1 hour 30-2 hours from Quito down the Pacific coast. We have experienced the Canopy attraction: 10 lines of tyroliennnes above the jungle. Between two passages above the canopy you can see spangles, parrots, toucans, hummingbirds (if you're lucky and in the morning).

  • I lived in Mindo alrrededor of 5 months and it is a town that while it is a few hours from the capital retains a special environment, away from luxury live simple, friendly people who enjoy travelers who visit them, a place that conserves the harmony with nature, because he lives surrounded by it and with it. A place for adventure and relaxation, to feel the living nature on the skin. Great place to disconnect and return to reconnect with nature.
