Clinging to the western slopes of the Andes, tiny Mindo offers a big punch in terms of tourist appeal. Set in a lush cloud forest, Mindo vacations attract bird-watchers and nature lovers interested in discovering a verdant landscape populated by hundreds of species of animals, many of which are rare and threatened with extinction. Founded in the 1860s, the settlement houses just 3,000 permanent residents but boasts a developing tourist infrastructure, which makes Mindo holidays increasingly popular with international visitors and weekenders from nearby Quito. Use our world travel planner: Mindo and all its delights await.
