The best birdwatching experience in Ecuador – Photo tour 

If you love birds and photography then you must visit Mindo in Ecuador. This cloud forest located 90 minutes from Quito is a birdwatcher’s paradise. It is an ideal location to visit whether you are planning to have a day trip together with friends or a relaxing weekend together with the family.

Make sure to bring all photography equipment with you so that you can capture some memorable shots!

How to get there

– Rent a car if you would like to go at your own tempo, taking pictures and enjoying the landscape. It takes about 2 hours to get there.
– You can book a day tour with a tour operator, it is a full day tour which would include other activities besides birdwatching.
– The most low budget option is of course to take a local bus that will bring you directly to the middle of the town of Mindo.

When to go

Best season to visit goes from November to June, when birds return from the mountains from their mating season.  Without further ado, here are some shots of some of the species you can admire on your visit!
