Hacienda San Vicente
Ranked #4 of 19 Mindo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 January 2011

Hacienda San Vicente is known for their Yellow House Trails, which lead up into the forested mountain above. One can pay to use the trails without staying at the hacienda, but I don't know why anyone would do so. The yard and grounds around the various buildings are filled with birds, and the views are spectacular. I stayed on my balcony for four hours on my first morning there and saw almost fifty different kinds of birds. The Yellow House Trails offer possibilities for many more species, not to mention hiking adventures for the more ambitious. There are countless types of plants, trees, and flowers, and lots of butterflies as well. It's only a five minute walk to town if you want to try a local restaurant. I took my meals at the hacienda. Lodging in a private room with private bath and balcony, plus meals, plus entrance to the Yellow House Trails was a mere $25 per night. The family was friendly and always available for conversation if I wanted to visit. The food was delicious and many of the ingredients came from the hacienda or nearby farms. I traveled to some other famous birding sites on day trips from Mindo, using public transportation. Taxis are always available and cheap, and the drivers will wait at the sites for a reasonable price. There are also regular buses to and from Mindo. Birding guides are available in Mindo, but I never hired one. Birds were easy to find.

Room Tip: Wenn möglich in die Cabaña gehen. Im Yellow House würde ich eher ein Zimmer im ersten Stock nehmen.
