alicecoleman (US) – Tripadvisor review
My husband and me don´t like to write reviews, anyway since the tour we made with Las Terrazas de Dana we must do it!.
We stayed at the lodge 6 nights. We made a private tour of 5 days and a extra day just to relax in our bungalow before going home. Mindo and Northwest Andes were the hightlight of our trip. We also visited the Andes East Slope and Amazon forest, but believe me that for bird watching in Ecuador Mindo is the best place. The tour we made with Las Terrazas de Dana was amazing. It was a private tour with a timetable but it was flexible as we need and made few changes since we wanted to visit again the hummingbirds garden. We saw more than 210 species in these days, still don´t have exact count. Danny the guide is very friendly, speaks fluent english and will take care of your bird watching needs. Marlon was with us as driver. He was always checking everything was OK (not just driving), in the tour and we know that he was in contact with David, since once we arrive David knew many details of our birding day.
The lodge is in a privileged situation and service is top notch. View from our terrace of the valley can´t be described with photos or videos. From terrace we saw many tanagers, hummingbirds, some woodpeckers and one afternoon toucans in the tree near our bungalow!
David and his staff will take care of everything you need. It is not just a hotel, you will feel like you are at a friend´s home!
Room Tip: All of them have awesome valley view
