Vinicio Perez is a very experienced bird guide, with excellent English.

They are in the process of setting up a new TripAdvisor account to separate themselves from the old owners, but I figured I'd post here in case anyone read this page looking for reviews on the new BirdWatcher's. The owners are very friendly... More

We stayed at Birdwatchers House for a few nights while we explored Mindo for the first time. It is clean and bright with big rooms. We got a nice brekkie each morning and the owner Vinicio has a wealth of info on the local birds. It was a good base for exploring the area.

Great hotel for starting your bird watching trip. The owner and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The inside of the hotel was not really our cup of tea, but who goes to Mindo to stay indoors? Especially worthwhile are the birding books in the restaurant. The owner knows a lot about the local birds and speaks English, with the... More
