The lodge

Las Terrazas de Dana is a family business run by two siblings, David and Ana. That’s why the mixed word “Dana”.

The idea of our eco-lodge is to provide our guests a personal and delightful service and to give insight into treasure of our amazing beautiful surroundings. We are continuously working to improve our lodge and personalized tours based in our personal and our guests experience.

Of course, we are always focused into international ecological practices and sustainable tourism. We value and are proud of our local staff and guides we work with and also support the community.

Ecologic side of our EcoLodge


We are proud to be the first lodge in Mindo to receive the Environmental Certificate!


We use dual flush toilets, led lamps, solar outdoor lamps, movement sensor lamps, grease traps, septic tanks with three chambers, and water treatment (bacteria and drainage network) filtered into the ground. We use biodegradable soaps and recycled wood as often as possible. We provide water from a natural spring and use multiple filters before using. We have free water refills for our guests.

In the last two decades, there has been a lot of talk about the need to protect the environment. Our eco-lodge is environmentally conscious and eco friendly. We keep an eye on the environment and the balance between man and nature. We are environmentally conscious and take care of the environment, the recycling and rational use of water.

Recent studies have shown there are still many lodges who do not pay attention to the environment and who do not care for all the damage that cause by their careless behavior. Rational use of water and use of the solar energy are a really nice start in an environmental story with which we can start a new chapter in our life!

There has been a constant growth in almost all over the world in use of the solar energy, and begin to take an important role. We use solar outdoor lamps, to be trendy and eco friendly. It is assumed that in the next few years, utilization of renewable energy sources, including solar energy, will have a constant growth, largely due to the set goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, increased use of electricity from renewable energy sources, reduction in the price of renewable energy, and desire to as less dependence on fossil fuels, which are becoming more expensive. That’s why we decided to take big care of the ecologic side of our eco-lodge and to offer you more than other lodges.
