My husband and I have traveled through Mindo a few times in the last 2 years and have usually stayed in hostels near and around town. This was our first experience renting a cabin and it couldn't have been a better experience. The grounds offer lots of privacy and hiking options for hikers at different levels, and its only a 5-10 minute drive into town. Lots of personal touches made us feel at home, like being able to cook our own meals with local produce, amazing freshly ground coffee every morning, all-natural insect repellent which smells and works great, and clean and comfy linens and towels. Our only regret is not staying longer!
