My girlfriend and I stayed here the beginning of January 2016. It was wonderful. Freddy and Maria picked us up at the airport as we were returning from Galapagos and took us on the winding mountainous drive to the lodge. The treehouse was a perfect place to unwind after the somewhat rugged travel in the islands. In fact we couldn't... More

Words and pictures will not do justice to this place...You have to go there, to stay in this gorgeous rustic lodge, hike the trails with the most caring and knowledgeable guides...I only stayed for 2 days, but planning to come back for a week with my family. The owner of the lodge is an excellent host and he does everything... More

This review is long overdue...we stayed in March of 2015 for four days and three nights and loved every minute of our stay! We were the only guests for the duration of our time there and we were treated incredibly well. Maria and Freddie made our stay incredible. Their hospitality was second to none. The food, the views, the accommodations.... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days/2 nights and had a wonderful time! Maria and Freddy were great hosts and the lodge was in such a pretty location. We did bird watching, zip lining, river tubing, and the chocolate tour. The zip lining and river tubing were the best we've ever experienced! We highly recommend adding a stop... More

Urcu is a lodge managed by a husband wife team near the town of Tena. The location is remote and beautiful. The facility is very well kept and nice. The food is mainly traditional Ecuadorean. Fredy and Maria aim to please and are great hosts. They provided transportation for us from Quito old town and then from Urcu to the... More

We are very thankful for your review. That´s great that you liked Urcu de Mindo. Sorry to hear that the wifi was not working well, as we are in the mountains, the internet signal works through a cell phone connection and some days it goes slow. At the moment, we are talking with the cell phone companies to see if... More

We loved living in the clouds! Humming birds, jungle trails, and great accomdations. We're from Minnesota and see humming birds occasionally. They're abundant as ducks here with many different colors and sizes. Getting there takes some effort but the staff is thoughtful and caring and will do whatever they can to make your stay enjoyable. A definite redo.

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
