Tandayapa Bird Lodge - Hotel Mindo - Ecuador

Tandayapa, the self-proclaimed "ultimate birding destination," was built in 1999 on a pasture on the edge of the cloud forest outside of Mindo. The lodge has since planted over 30,000 trees to fill in the areas of the cloud forest that had been destroyed. Tandayapa, which is stacked with birding gear and viewing equipment, features a viewing deck, extensive trails throughout the forest and full-time guides willing to set out in search of birds at all hours of the day. There are several options for different day trips, each with a list of bird species found in those areas. Tandayapa has 12 rooms in the main building, all with hot water, private bathrooms and electricity.
