My husband and I stayed at this beautiful and peaceful cloud forest eco-lodge for three days/four nights. Our guides Maria and Freddy picked us up in Quito and we were off to visit Museo Intiñan (the true middle of the world site and museum). We then visited Mindo for an afternoon of activities. The tubing was a little rough for... More

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

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.)
