Mindo, bird watching capital of Ecuador with more than 400 species recorded, is a town I've wanted to visit for a long time. Located in the cloud forest about 2 hours west of Quito, Mindo is a little tourist destination 4100 feet above sea level with a population of about 3000.

I stayed at Casa de Piedra and walked everywhere. My host Henry Guillen was very informative and directed me to all of the sights around town. There is a short cable car ride over Rio Mindo to a series of waterfalls, a cacao tour to see how chocolate is produced, a butterfly farm, an orchid garden, and more than one bird watching platform where I saw the most colorful birds ever and a pair of toucans.

Single room $24 per night, breakfast included.
