This reserve created in 1988 is considered a biodiversity hotspot. It has circa 20.000 hectars at altitudes that go from 1400 to 4720 meters above sea level.
It is well known by birdwatchers because of the diversity and endemism of bird species, and also because of the proximity and accessibility from Quito.
If you are looking for a "quick view" or "light" adventure within a tropical rain and cloud forest, Mindo and its surroundings are the ideal area for an overnight or a longer stay.
