Things to do in Mindo

What to do in Mindo? and where to go in Mindo?

In addition to birdwatching in Mindo, Mindo has many other activities to keep nature lovers occupied. The green, lush landscapes are punctuated by nature trails, freshwater rivers and waterfalls, which can be explored by foot.
Mindo river is a low-level rapids which is perfect for tubing so it is no surprise that this is one of the most popular activities in Mindo. For about $5 to $7 ($25 the whole ride) per person, you will be driven up to the launch point and will be given a helmet, a small inner tube that will be tied to the inner tubes of the other members of your group, a life jacket and a tubing local guide. This Mindo tubing is not rafting, so it will be a mellow float down the river—no need to navigate advanced rapids or anything.
Two other major attractions in Mindo butterfly farm. In fact. About two miles outside of town, along the road that goes to the waterfall, is the Mariposas de Mindo, or Butterfly Farm. This is the most well-known and most professional of them all. Admission to the Mariposario costs $7.50 per person.

Another great way to get introduced to the local flora and fauna is to participate in the nightly Mindo frog concert just outside of town. The name may be misleading, because the frog concert is less of a concert and more of a night walk in the forest and around ponds where an informational guide points out the different nocturnal species that inhabit the area, including the many species of frogs. The tour takes place at 7 p.m. daily and costs $6, which includes a glass of wine.
Adventure-seekers will not want to miss one of the canopy tours offered along the road to the waterfalls. Mindo Canopy Adventure is the the major company (the one with good reputation) that has set up cables through the Mindo cloud forest that tourists can zipline on. A canopy tour costs $18 for 10 lines and $8 for 2 or 3 lines. The price includes all the necessary equipment, a professional guide that can help you with tricks along the way, and the tour itself, which includes Mindo ziplining on more than 10 different cables.
Another activity in Mindo is riding on the Mindo cable car called tarabita (Mindo gondola), which stretches across two of the mountaintops. The ride provides some beautiful, photo-worthy views of the cloud forest. A roundtrip ride costs $5 per person, but you can also gain access to the Mindo Nambillo private reserve by a Mindo Teleferico its cost is $8 per person.
Everybody talks, visits and enjoys Chocolate, if you want to support Organic Mindfully produced Chocolate please buy and support reliable and serious choclate brands. The farming and production of the chocolate is very far from the pristine cloudforest area. In the Tropics. They are tropifarmers (farmers from the tropics) committed to plant to bar chocolate making, perpetuating sustainable and traditional ways of agriculture while re-existing and saving a human heritage in danger of extinction. Contribute to the generation of environmental justice, together with social and ecological sustainability in the forests of Ecuador.
