I have been to El Abrazo del Arbol twice now, once for a quiet weekend with friends and once with a group of students. Both times the staff went out of their way to be accommodating and kind. This family run establishment in the heart of the cloud forest will give you a beautiful getaway but keep you close to the charms of Mindo.
The owners also went out of their way to return an article of clothing that I left behind, they brought it all the way to Quito to personally deliver it to me - what better level of care could a person ask for!?
Not to mention the food is some of the best in Ecuador!
