A brief cable car ride through the Mindo Nambillo Cloud Forest Reserve not only lets you admire the rain forest canopy up close, but also cuts down on the hike to the popular Nambillo Waterfall. Each open-air car holds up to six people, giving the option of taking the short trip with your group.
While in Mindo, a visit to the Butterfly Garden is a must-do experience. Located at the site of Hosteria Mariposas de Mindo, the interactive butterfly sanctuary offers visitors a unique look at the four stages of a butterfly’s life. This admission ticket includes access to the exhibition area where you can observe the feeding of two dozen butterfly species and observe more than 1,000 butterflies at once.
