From the capital, Quito to the lowlands and Pacific beaches of Ecuador, there are some truly remarkable animal and wildlife experiences to be enjoyed in this special country. This short tour is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the lush cloud forest outside of the Ecuadorian capital. This is an unforgettable Ecuador travel experience and one that is completely unique to this part of the world.
This two-day tour takes in the Mindo valley, a true birdwatchers paradise, with over 500 different classified species. The tour includes a one-night stay at a lodge and includes all meals.
What to wear:
As you’ll be spending time at lower altitude it will be warmer in Mindo than in Quito, therefore a light jacket is recommended for this Ecuador travel experience. Although, as the cloud forest is prone to rain, a waterproof jacket is also a good idea. On your feet, you’ll need to wear comfortable walking boots or durable trainers.
Bring your bathing suit too, if you fancy a swim, and a spare pair of shoes in your backpack will always come in handy as it can get muddy.
