Plus at just over two hours from Quito, Mindo is an easy trip from the capital.

The town itself is small and quaint and quiet. There are several nice places to eat and there are even more sites to see in and around town like a butterfly farm, an orchid garden, and an organic coffee farm.


Mindo’s weather is similar to other mountain town, with warm days and cool evenings. It is quite a bit warmer than Quito. It rains more from January through April.

Bring t-shirts and pants for daytime. And a light jacket for evenings. Shoes for walking are a must.
