Joe (US) – Tripadvisor review
My wife and I spent the month of Aug in Ecuador and three nights at “dana las torrozas de” in Mindo EC; the highlight of our trip. Mindo is a typical Ecuador village with not much to offer with exception of the local attractions all good and inexpensive. We found the cloud forest magnificent and staying at dana’s we were surrounded by the forest. Our bungalow overlooked the valley and breakfast each morning on the deck watching the sunrise along with the hummingbirds almost within reach who stayed throughout the day
Since dana’s is about two miles outside the village, Marlin the all-around guy at the lodge drove us where we needed to go and a $2.00 taxi return. David the owner and along with Marlin were quite ready to service our requirements. The rooms are very unique and exceptionally clean. Each has a hot Tube with jets which we used after our visit to the waterfalls, quite an adventure for a couple of old folks.
Now the bonus: The food was outstanding a breakfast consisting of fruit, yogurt, eggs anyway, coffee and juice of fresh fruit. After arriving late, the first night we eat and our room and was pleasantly surprised with dinner that was equal to any. We eat the next two nights at the lodge enjoying trout and shrimp prepared differently each night. I all most forgot David had surprise deserts each night to die for.
If you do visit “dana las terrazos de” lodge say hello to David and Marlin from Annette and Joe.
A wonderful place to enjoy some relaxing days in the cloud forest of Ecuador.
