Located just outside Mindo, Septimo Paraiso is truly a magical retreat in the clouds. We visited in the rainy season, yet the weather was perfect and the streets of Mindo uncrowded. In Mindo, tour the chocolate factory, go for a tube, zipline or just wander the quiet streets and dodge friendly dogs. We were welcomed at Septimo Paraiso by very...

This is my first trip to Ecuador and the staff was very friendly and went out of their way to make me feel welcome. It is a beautiful place. Each meal was wonderful with fresh juices and daily baked bread. Did I mention that they have handmade chocolate? It's to die for. Can't wait to go back.

We came for the private cloud forest trails which are wonderful and we had all to ourselves. The grounds, room and service were amazing. Great vegetarian options for me and complimentary rubber boots. The new chocolate shop was insane--the hot choclate was so thick and chocolatey we couldn't finish it between three of us! Lovely pool area with new bar!...

I stayed here for a few days to find frogs and reptiles in the area. My room was large, very well furnished and comfortable. This is an humid area, so I was pleased to find that my room had a dehumidifier, which meant that things did not get damp and laundry would dry. This place does laundry, but it is...

We always thank our clients for taking the time to write a review. However Sir, it is important to note the following: Transportation: an exclusive car was waiting for you at the airport on you arrival to bring you directly to the lodge which is 1h45 away. The price was agreed before the service was given, so it was your...

This lodge is certainly set in a wonderful garden which has been designed beautifully by Analu. There are a number of trails which take you to various hidden gems within the property. Our room was very comfortable and overlooked part of the forest from where we could see many birds. We were made to feel very welcome by Analu and...

We stayed here as part of a birding tour and loved the place. The grounds are full of the most amazing birds and Hummingbird feeders attract birds at the front door.
