El Monte Sustainable Lodge, Mindo
El Monte Sustainable Lodge
Our rating: Superior | Property style: Lodge
Located in the heart of the lush Mindo Cloud Forest, the quaint El Monte Sustainable Lodge offers a riverside haven for nature lovers on the banks of the Mindo River. Here you will find simplicity and sustainability at their best, where the combination of comfort and low impact tourism results in a very memorable stay. The ecolodge has six riverside cabins, with bathtubs and open balconies to enjoy the sights and sounds of the forest. Sat close to the Mindo-Nambillo Reserve that protects 40,000 acres of flora and fauna, the lodge was built inside its own private 110-acre reserve and runs on hydroelectric power. Delicious daily meals are served using freshly grown ingredients straight from their organic garden. The team are passionate about the environment and offer interesting walks and discussions on the local biology and conservation efforts in the area, and you can even enjoy a dip in the natural, river-fed swimming pool before warming up by one of the fire pits in the evening.
