There are two options - the short route (3 rope slides) or the long route (10 slides). It is definitely better to go for all ten as you need to relax into it. The slides are pretty long and the views are amazing. Two guides go round with you and make sure everything is okay. It took us about one... More

For me doing the canopy trail was a great way of overcome my fear of hights. Because you don't stop easily in the middle of the trail en the fact that everyone around you is so excited about what we're doing helped me to relax en ejoy this amazing experience. Amazing views when you rail over to the other side.... More

Our group of 4 had 2 guides with us to do 10 lines. They were efficient, safety-conscious and able to translate direction well enough for us to understand. We were able to additionally enjoy doing "Superman" or woman and/or "Butterfly" positions WITH the guide, not on your own. FYI: These positions bring you in close contact with your guide. On... More

Did the full tour and had a blast. I went on my own, but was quickly matched up with a trio for my tour. Guides were very professional, safe, and friendly. Lines are little slower than others I've done, but this gives you lots of time to enjoy the scenery. There's some walking between lines, but nothing extensive. Whole tour... More

We visited Mindo last week and we had a wonderful time, we've done canopy before and it was an amazing experience going across the mountains, my children and I enjoyed our time. This time around we decided to do something different canyoning (rappelling) under a waterfall and tubing (like rafting). How fun both activities, I'm afraid of heights but after... More

It's well done and very safe but we were bored after the first few lines. The last two lines are faster. Ask to go upside down for a bit of fun. We walked back to town. Took about 45 minutes and it's a nice walk.

Our teens loved this experience: 10 different zip-lines for $20. The gear was safe/well kept and the workers were knowledgeable. It took a good hour to complete.

A short way from Mindo is the Mindo Canopy, this is a series of zip lines (there are various tours) that are available for all people from 6 years onwards. One of the highly recommended activities in Mindo. Well worth it if you enjoy adrenaline and fun. Excellent guides and price.

Absolutely incredible experience! The two guides are very reassuring and friendly. They didn't speak English but the gestures are universal. Felt very safe and worth the stunning views.
