Mindo Things to See and Do

Most of the activities in Mindo take advantage of its spectacular natural setting and rich variety of flora and fauna. If you are in search of a little adrenaline, there's plenty of outdoor activities to do that will get you your fix. Look along Mindo's main avenue to acquire tickets to any of the activities that we list here.

Bird watchers, nature lovers, and people interested in learning a little more about flora and fauna in the area can hire a local biologist guide either through their hotel or an international or Quiteño travel agency. If you choose to find a guide locally, you probably won’t be able to get a bilingual guide, but you will learn a lot about local politics and life. Among the rare bird species spotted in Mindo are the toucan-barbet, the cock-of-the-rock and the golden-headed quetzal.
