Ecuador´s first ecological climbing-lodge with over 5000 meters of fun and security. It was developed by a group of dreamers who combine climbing and ecotourism in one. A visit to Mindo Pura Vida is a journey of adventure and an opportunity to reconnect with nature. We offer a climbing tower to suit different levels of difficulty and routes, fully serviced tent-rooms or camping ground, with hot showers and bathrooms. Delicious international and local food at our restaurant and bar; all in one place and at the best price. Here you can chill and relax inside of the forest of Mindo.

As someone who lives on a motorcycle, finding a place that offers 20% off to bikers is always a treat! the grounds are full of orchids, and other flowers. There is a tight rope, a climbing wall, a meditation area... and you are a few minutes walk from the Mariposario! If you like birds and all that jazz, just leave... More

An absolutely awesome place to stay. I loved it. It was clean, beautiful and the food was tasty and safe to eat. I would definitely return. It is well priced.

Dealing with the administrator is a nightmare. Despite being a camping ground with a climb tower they are not kid friendly and will actually use that against you. Their restaurant and bar is practically non-existent and would be better served by a vending machine. There are lots of lodging options in Mindo and you’d be better off at any one... More
