A sub-tropical landscape upon the slopes of the Western Andes, Mindo is a delightful area of pre-Incan history and pure nature.
Strange stones show where executions were carried out by the Yumbos. Archaeological evidence creates a tale from more than a millennia ago, as your guide explains how much culture existed here long before the Incas.
Traveling further into Mindo you will visit a butterfly garden and orchid garden, as well as a forest that dazzles with rare tropical birds. Mindo is an iconic day trip from Quito but you can also enjoy one of the superb haciendas in the area.
