If you decide to come with your own car:
You have to take the road to “Mitad del Mundo” and continue it to “San Miguel de Los Bancos”. In the way you will find signs to turn left towards the town of Mindo.

To come to the lodge is very easy. Once you are in Mindo take the road to the Cablecar (Tarabita) and Sanctuary of Waterfalls. Everybody in the town knows it. 12 minutes from the town walking you will see a crossroad with two ways. To the left it goes to the Butterfly Garden. You have to take the right road over the concrete bridge. Walk 100 meters more and you will see a road to the left. Continue another 100 meters in this road and you will see Las Terrazas de Dana.
