I stayed here in July 2012 in a group of 9. I would definitely consider this more of an adventure package than just a lodge. We did a two day - one night trip that included zip lining. They picked us up in Quito and first we stopped at the Equator. We took a tour and took some photos here.... More

Wonderful forest views and waterfalls. A great place to have piece of mind with nature, waking up with birds and pure air. Nice and very clean cabins on the mountains, beautiful natural environment walking excursions. Excellent food. Overall great value and experience.

We stayed here for two nights. Maria and Freddy picked us up promptly in Quito. We visited the Ecuator, stopped to repel down some falls in Mindo and visited a butterfly farm on our way to the Lodge. Maria speaks English well and Freddy can carry a conversation. I wish I had met their children. You feel like a part... More

We stayed here 4 days as volunteers, working in the gardens. The food was fabulous and our hosts were very generous. (We also had fun with the dogs, cats and chickens that live on the grounds.) We stayed in one of the original cabins. They are comfortable but very basic - this is sustainable living in the cloudforest, so it... More
