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.

I had this idea that zip lining was a good way to view the forest. Not especially. It's adventure entertainment; any sight seeing is secondary. The runs are too fast and short for sight seeing (though if you did it a lot, the novelty of the zip lining would probably wear off and you would be able to focus more... More

What a great way to spend an hour, extremely colourful, interesting and a worthy cause. They even give you instruction on how to handle the butterflies carefully.

Brilliant fun. The closest I've come to flying, and over magnificent rainforest canopy. Helpful and encouraging guides who paid good attention to client safety. A very well organised and efficient outfit.

My boyfriend and I had a blast and will remember this experience forever! It was a beautiful, sunny day, and I suggest you go in the morning, like we did, as it seems to get overcast and rainy in Mindo the second half of the day. There were 12 of us in our group - we were definitely the oldest... More

Very safe with bilingual guides. Great with kids! Totally worth the price and the rough drive to get there. We went early in the morning and it was worth it- didn't have to wait at all!

I was definitely scared to do this, but it was also something that I felt that I had to do. I wanted to conquer my fear of heights, and I figured this was as good an opportunity as any. I'm still surprised that I did it! In addition to my husband and me (we were clearly the oldest in the... More

Currently the only company running zip line tours in Mindo after an accident with the competitor back in 2012 (the company is closed and safety standards have since been out into place). Zip-lining with Mindo Canopy Adventure was such a blast. I felt totally safe the entire time, our guides were really great, and for $20 (price for non-Ecuadorians), it... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Ecuador. We have done zip lining in other places and in other countries, but this was by far the most fun. Great heights, great distances, and an amazing thrill. We had people of all ages from quite young (8 years) to us middle-aged people (50ish), and everyone had a great... More
