Hi guys, the Mindo Tour was awesome! We had so much fun even with the "short" trek to the waterfall. Great day, great fun and great company. 👍

What an amazing day!! The drive was beautiful and you can choose how you would like to spend the day. We opted for a visit to a local home to see hummingbirds of various sizes and colors - definitely more exotic than what we see in California. We went to another home to see birds native to the area. Such bright, beautiful colors. We then chose to go zip lining- $8.00 for 3 lines was an amazing deal and the views did not disappoint. We hiked to a waterfall, had a delicious lunch in a small town and headed home - truly a great experience!! Do take cash, small bills are preferred.

Thanks so much for your review. I'm so happy you enjoyed the Mindo Cloud Forest Tour. Mindo is definitely one of my favorite city escapes. I always find something new to do there and it's a great place to relax and chill. Cheers! Andres
