Situated in the heart of the deep cloud forest, and just two hours drive from the capital city of Quito lays Mindo Garden; an area of 300 hectares of protected grounds that portrays stunning scenery, and brimming with wildlife which thrives on the Mindo River. A series of beautifully constructed cabins offer amazing accommodation to disconnect from reality and get lost in nature that can be viewed from the large bay windows. A restaurant is also within the grounds that draw its ingredients from the local surroundings and fresh fish are caught from the nearby river.
A list of exciting activities can also be arranged by Mindo Garden at a very affordable price; a journey to the summit of the canopy can be achieved for $13 or a cable cart and waterfall tour is only $5, and for a less strenuous excursion the chocolate tour is highly recommended for just $4. A number of all inclusive packages combine accommodation, food, and a hectic itinerary over a maximum duration of 4 days and 3 nights to venture deep into the luscious landscape.
