My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Casa Davina and would definitely stay there again. We were the only guests during our stay so had the run of the place, making our stay more like cross between a visit with friends and a private retreat than a hotel stay. We were on the upper floor of a large “cabin”...

We stayed here for 2 nights and spent most of our time bird watching with Efrain. He is an amazing guide. The lodge itself is set back in the forest. We were surrounded by trees and plants. We saw many birds around our cabin and the main lodge. Our room was beautiful and very clean. The atmosphere was very relaxing....

Tasty food, smoothies on request, welcoming hosts and excellent bird watching - in all a wonderful stay. Efram took us on a bird watching trip like no other - a fantastic range of colourful and exotic birds, which somehow he spotted amongst the trees. A very relaxing and pleasant stay. Highly recommended.

What a great place to stay. We started out by spending the day traveling from Quito to Mindo with Efram (owner and birding guide). We saw 25 species of hummingbirdgs before we even got to the lodge. Once there we were shown to our cabin. What a beautiful location, tucked away in the cloudforest. It was so peaceful and relaxing....

We loved the lodge and the friendly owners. The food was fabulous! The room was very comfortable, with a great secluded setting and a gorgeous bathroom. Efrain guided us on our birding treks that were very successful! There were also many birds to see just while sitting in the lodge at breakfast.

We wanted to do some birdwatching and decompress after a hectic week in the Galapagos. Efrain picked us up in Quito and we went on a bird watching trip before we were taken to the lodge.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Divina Lodge is located 1.2 km (3/4 mi.) outside the town of Mindo in the western lowlands of the Pichincha Province in Ecuador, South America. About 2 hours northwest of Quito, the valley of Mindo forms part of a larger biodiversity hotspot known as the Andean Choco Region. We are proud to offer comfortable and elegant accommodation in the middle of the cloudforest. The town of Mindo offers many activities for the outdoor, nature-seeking traveler. World class birdwatching is at its best in and around the Mindo area. Please inquire about birdwatching packages and personalized tours.At Casa Divina Lodge we provide delicious home-style meals and comfortable accommodations for those who want an adventure by day and an elegant and cozy place to rest by night. As well as an experienced bird guide, Efrain, owner and builder, is a talented carpenter and has demonstrated his love for wood in each of the hand-built cabins as well as almost all of the wooden furniture in the lodge. We are a family-run business that holds high standards in service to our guests and also towards our employees. We value those that work with us greatly. We are proud to have a dedicated staff that is happy to be here and has been with us for an extended period, making the atmosphere here that much more warm and family-oriented.We welcome families that travel together, as well as guests with young children. We have two children and know what a great opportunity and advantage it is for children to experience a broader sense of the world through travel. We run a small capacity lodge on a private nature reserve, so whether you are dedicated birdwatchers, honeymooners or a traveling family Casa Divina Lodge offers the perfect cloudforest experience.We support community tourism by working with other family-run businesses in the area. We encourage our guests to get out and experience the variety of activities available in the region. For the adventure seekers there is zip lining through the trees, tubing down the Mindo River and rappelling down one of many local waterfalls. Delight your sweet tooth on a rainy afternoon at the local chocolate factory. For nature lovers there is a morning at the butterfly farm, a tour at the orchid garden and the after dinner night hike. For avid bird watchers you can't miss the cock-of-the-rock lek, a visit to the Paz de Las Aves Reserve and humming bird observation.But you won't want to spend all of your time out of doors. Casa Divina is a place where life slows down. A place where you are invited to relax on the sofa with a good book, or in your hammock for a refreshing siesta.Our meals are a healthy blend of traditional Ecuadorian and international fare. And don't forget the desserts. Each evening a unique sweet inspiration is served from the ovens of the Sweet Goddess Bakery. For those who can't get enough of our cooking (or just want to stay in for the day) we offer lunch, snacks, drinks and-of course-coffee and tea all day long. Unlimited filtered drinking water is also available in your room as well as in the main house.Mindo is a small town located in the Ecuadorian western lowlands (more commonly know as cloud forest) where so many ideals come together: the climate is just right (the nickname for this valley is "the land of eternal spring"), the biodiversity will make even the most amateur nature seeker giddy with excitement, malaria does not exist here (no pills, no side effects), and the community is conscientious and moving ahead in the eco-tourism movement. You will see informative signs posted throughout town about the effects of pollution and all households and businesses separate our waste into organic and non-organic bins. The young people from Mindo are proud of their town, their work and the opportunity to have an international experience in a small rural town.Although Mindo still has a long way to go in its development as an "eco-destination," change and progress are happening and it's exciting to be part of the process. We invite you to come and kick up your heels at Casa Divina Lodge and participate in community tourism in the making. ... more   less
