We have just had 5 days birding the Mindo area with local guide Julia Patino, (She was superb) We stayed at La Roulette and found it such a warm and friendly place. Ignacio and his staff made us feel very welcome and at home despite our very limited Spanish, even preparing coffee and breakfast for us before 5am. Quirky gypsy...

Great place to spend one or many nights...just dont try to find it on a dark rainy night. The concept of individual gypsi vagons in the middle of the cloud forest is definetly something you've never seen. The breakfast in tipically swiss style is nothing you expect from a hostel in the middle of "nowhere". The sorroundings are just perfect...

Loved this place, especially the breakfast! The service is very personal, the staff too. They go out of their way to make one feel comfortable and give ideas for your stay in Mindo. Even though it is out of town, we walked and it only took 25 minutes, then Ignacio drove us back for the return trip. I bet he...

La Roulotte is a wonderful place to stay. Ignacio and his staff could not be more friendly and helpful. The food is very good although the menu is fairly limited. Ignatio organized a bird tour with a local guide for us. A young man on staff took us on an hour trek to a nearby waterfall and Ignatio took us...

We loved it here. After one night in Mindo proper, we decided to find a place in outskirts. This place is SO friendly, accommodating, and peaceful. Our cabin was beautiful, clean, and cozy, with a lovely pine fragrant construction. Great food, home-made rum, frog-hunts at night, washer & dryer, great bird guide: unbeatable choice. Thanks, Ignacio!

We stayed at La Roulotte along with another couple. We each had our own little gypsy caravan, with double bunk bed, nice bathroom, in a beautiful setting. We loved this place. Very close to downtown Mindo, yet out in the wilds. The restaurant was excellent. Fabulous breakfast every morning and wonderful dinners. Ignacio and Ribardo, staff at Roulotte were both...

My wife and I spent a fantastic week here. We had a delicious breakfast each morning whilst watching the humming birds from the restaurant. Ignacio and Ribardo were wonderful hosts and we were sad to leave such a beautiful place after becoming good friends with them. I would recommend La Roulette to anyone who goes to Mindo; you will not...

What a find. My sister and I were in Mindo for just one night, without a reservation. We were lucky to call La Roulotte and find a train car waiting for us. It's tricky to get a cab out there at night (we were directed down the street to "el gordo" - was he in the cornerstore? The bar?) but...

I only had the chance to stay at La Roulette one night, but it was great. The staff are super personable and eager to help you with whatever you may need. The cabins are unique and comfortable, with big beds, plenty of blankets, and a stove should it get too chilly at night. The bathroom was great, with hot water...

“The caravans are set up with two in one area and three in the other. We stayed where there were two and it seemed a bit more private. No wifi in rooms but is available in the restaurant common area. Setup for all the caravans appeared to be the same”
