PRIVATE TOUR MINDO Just 2 hours from Quito is Mindo, a green valley with more biodiversity in the world. Due to this unique feature Mindo is a true paradise for nature lovers and birdwatchers, as it is home to hundreds of species of birds, butterflies, hummingbirds, bromeliads and orchids.
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel at 8 o’clock in the morning and take you on this exciting excursion to the Mindo Cloud Forest. During the 2 hours journey you can appreciate the transformation of the dry vegetation in a lush forest.
Upon arrival, you will visit the butterfly farm. Here you can observe the four-stage life cycle while enjoying the presence of many beautiful colored butterflies. If you are lucky, you will see one or more butterflies emerging from their cocoons.
If you like chocolate, then you will love our next stop; the chocolate Factory. On a guided tour, you will be shown how chocolate is made from ‘grain to bar’. The most exciting part for some is the tasting of the different flavors of chocolate.
The rest of the day can be spent according to your interests. You can enjoy activities such as hiking, zip-lining or visiting one of the orchid farms.
At the end of the day, your guide will take you back to your hotel, where your arrival will be at 5 pm.
