We spent three nights in Mindo at the unique and charming La Roulotte. It was hard to imagine when we read about it but we found the caravan quite comfortable - the twin beds are more the size of full beds and could easily sleep two. I loved having a fire in the stove every night even when it was... More

As others have pointed out, La Roulotte, with its gipsy wagon rooms, is a very charming place. We did not want to leave. Breakfasts are very good, big portions with fruits, natural juices, coffee, tea, homemade bread... as well as other options for lunch or dinner. Nacho is a great host. He and the rest of the staff made us... More

We made a last minute decision to spend our last two days in Ecuador ( after 12 days in the galapagos) in Mindo rather than Quito. We were lucky to find La Roulotte and a warm welcome from Ignacio. The caravan cabins are cosy, comfortable and very clean. The setting is tranquil and there are lots of birds on the... More

We have just had 5 days birding the Mindo area with local guide Julia Patino, (She was superb) We stayed at La Roulette and found it such a warm and friendly place. Ignacio and his staff made us feel very welcome and at home despite our very limited Spanish, even preparing coffee and breakfast for us before 5am. Quirky gypsy... More

Great place to spend one or many nights...just dont try to find it on a dark rainy night. The concept of individual gypsi vagons in the middle of the cloud forest is definetly something you've never seen. The breakfast in tipically swiss style is nothing you expect from a hostel in the middle of "nowhere". The sorroundings are just perfect... More

Loved this place, especially the breakfast! The service is very personal, the staff too. They go out of their way to make one feel comfortable and give ideas for your stay in Mindo. Even though it is out of town, we walked and it only took 25 minutes, then Ignacio drove us back for the return trip. I bet he... More

La Roulotte is a wonderful place to stay. Ignacio and his staff could not be more friendly and helpful. The food is very good although the menu is fairly limited. Ignatio organized a bird tour with a local guide for us. A young man on staff took us on an hour trek to a nearby waterfall and Ignatio took us... More

We loved it here. After one night in Mindo proper, we decided to find a place in outskirts. This place is SO friendly, accommodating, and peaceful. Our cabin was beautiful, clean, and cozy, with a lovely pine fragrant construction. Great food, home-made rum, frog-hunts at night, washer & dryer, great bird guide: unbeatable choice. Thanks, Ignacio!

We stayed at La Roulotte along with another couple. We each had our own little gypsy caravan, with double bunk bed, nice bathroom, in a beautiful setting. We loved this place. Very close to downtown Mindo, yet out in the wilds. The restaurant was excellent. Fabulous breakfast every morning and wonderful dinners. Ignacio and Ribardo, staff at Roulotte were both... More

My wife and I spent a fantastic week here. We had a delicious breakfast each morning whilst watching the humming birds from the restaurant. Ignacio and Ribardo were wonderful hosts and we were sad to leave such a beautiful place after becoming good friends with them.
