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.

And Mindo was one of the places we visited. Maria and Freddy picked us up in Conocoto and we stayed at Urcu de Mindo for two days. They were incredibly hospitable... More

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
