MINDO CLOUD FOREST
$135 per person
A little over an hour from Quito lies the Mindo cloud forest, filled with amazing plant and animal life – perfect for a day trip from Quito. For the ornithologists in the bunch, Mindo and its surrounding cloud forest are a birdwatcher’s paradise!
This cloud forest tour in Mindo is a day of adventure in nature that can include everything from exploring an archeological site that pre-dates the Incas by thousands of years, to walking through a wild orchid collection and visiting a beautiful jungle waterfall.
Another of its attractions of this cloud forest tour is a butterfly farm where you will watch gargantuan butterflies dry their wings after emerging from their jewel-like cocoons inches away. You can dip your fingers into a banana concoction and then be thrilled as butterflies the size of birds land in your hands for a snack.
But there is more to explore. You can go «tubing» (with several large inner-tubes tied together) as our steely-nerved guides steer you through thrilling rapids. Or try canopy ziplining (sailing along one of 13 zip-lines over the beautiful canopy of the cloud forest), or perhaps visit a tiny chocolate factory where you will have a chance to follow cacao through the entire process, from its harvest to its becoming a delicious brownie or a cup of real hot cocoa. All this you can experience in your Mindo Cloud Forest Tour!
