Mindo is world renowed for the variety of its bird species. Casa de Vista Alta is along the trail that most birding guides take their clients. Without even leaving the premises you can expect to cross a few off your life list however a guided tour will present opportunities to see and photo Toucans, Hummingbirds, Quetzals and many others up close and in their natural habitats.
Views of the Forest
A short walk up the hill from Casa de Vista Alta you will find the entrance to the waterfall sanctuary.
A cable car takes you over a valley before you arrive at the beginning of trails that can occupy your time for anything between 1 and 5 hours.
Sprinkled along the route are waterfalls of various sizes and ferocities.
Take swimsuit, sunblock and be prepared to bath in water so clean you'll want to fill your bottles with it.
