Mindo is a small town set amidst a landscape of lush green mountains, crystalline rivers and waterfalls, and pristine nature. It is widely recognised as a centre for both nature immersion and adventure activities. To the northwest of Quito, it is one of the attractions close to the capital of Ecuador, passing by the famous monument of the Middle of the World, we have Mindo with its warm and humid climate for being on the border between two regions; The Andes and the Ecuadorian coast.

We want to bring you closer to the typical indigenous constructions of the area and at the same time provide you with the necessary comfort to make your stay an unforgettable experience. No luxuries, just pure fun.

The departure is at 7am from The Secret Garden’s travel agency. We will have breakfast and then set off towards Mindo. The drive takes about two and a half hours. On the way we can stop outside the equator line monument site for anyone who wants to take a quick picture, and then carry along the beautiful mountain roads, where you will notice the change in scenery as you go down in altitude.

Our first stop is the zip lines or canopy, as they call it here, as you are literally above the canopy. There are 10 lines in total, and if you are feeling brave you could even try the superman or butterfly pose.

After about an hour of adrenaline-fuelled fun, you will head towards the Tarabita, which is a cable car that takes you to the start of your waterfall walk. As you walk through the cloud forest you could see a variety of different birds and butterflies. If you bring a swim suit you could have a swim in the crystal-clear water.

Once you have dried off a little, we will head for lunch. After lunch optional activities are either:

1. Visit to Chocolate Factory (not included in price) OR

2. Visit to Butterfly Farm / Hummingbirds (not included in price)

After a fun-filled day, we will head back to Quito arriving to the hostel at around 7pm or 8pm.
