My friend and I (both 23, male) spent one night at the lodge. We left feeling like we had the best crash course cloud forest experience possible. We did the zip lines, went to the butterfly farm, visited Mindo all during the afternoon, had a great dinner and listened to the sounds of the jungle at night, and woke up...

This is a perfect experience for independent travelers who embrace the idea of simple living for a few days. Our hosts picked us up right on time at our hostel in the Old Town of Quito. They are a couple with three...

I booked the 3 day 2 night package that includes transport from Quito. Marie and Freddie picked us up at our hotel. The transport was well arranged and quite comfortable. The drive from Quito took nearly 3 hours. The cabins are quite rustic which added to the charm. There is no electricity but there are candles. Don't forget the headlamps....

Very rustic and delightful. Only cold water for showers and no electricity in the huts. Steep climbs to the huts. A great experience. Food good and hosts great as was the guide Clever? Not 5 star but new huts are being constructed with hot water so we were told. Take warm clothing weather Changes rapidly.

This lodge is a ways from the bus stop, and only accessible by 4 wheel drive or motorbike. The lodges themselves are rustic, with cold running water and no electricity. The beds are clean and comfy.

“The rooms are all nice and well maintained. Keep in mind you'll be staying in a cloud forest so everything is humid. It makes for difficulty when trying to get clothes to dry. Something you just have to figure out how to live with for a few days. ”
