Mindo is known for butterflies and birds. I walked a few kilometers out of town to El Mariposario to see butterflies hatching and flying free. Then I stopped at La Roulotte, a hotel with gypsy caravans for rooms. The bird watching platform in the lodge attracted an amazing variety of colorful birds.
