The space
This is a truly unique place; the only birdwatching tower in the Mindo area. The tower is set over 4 floors offering a 360 degree view on every floor. The flora and fauna can be witnessed at every level of the cloud forest and the tower ensures you get to see everything. Whether you are preparing meals and being distracted by the hummingbirds flashing past or waking up in the bedroom to the sight of a family of parrots flying over or enjoying a beer in the observation floor whilst the Kinkajous visit the feeding platforms! Every floor offers something different. The Bird Tower is located on a 6 acre property that is a mix of landscaped gardens and secondary cloud forest. There are trails all around the property and outdoor seating areas. Come and connect with nature and be truly immersed in the cloud forest.

Where you’ll be

Mindo, Pichincha, Ecuador

The Bird Tower is located 3 kilometers outside the village of Mindo. The exact location is on the main birdwatching trail that all "twitchers" visit with the guides as the bird activity in our neighbourhood is the best in Ecuador. 5 minutes walking distance to the ziplines and 25 minutes to the waterfalls. The walk into the village of Mindo is a beautiful walk taking approx 45 minutes and a taxi ride back to the tower with your groceries is only $4 making everything feel very accessible. The tranquility of this neighbourhood is remarkable, with no permanent neighbours around, you can wake up every morning to the sound of birds and fall asleep to the sound of frogs.

I moved to Ecuador from Canada because of the incredible biodiversity in this beautiful country. I'm living in Mindo which is in the transition zone between the Chocó rainforest and the Andes mountains creating a mixture of diversity from both regions. The climate is perfect here. There is upwards of 600 species of birds in Mindo which are all amazing to see. My passion lies with nocturnal creatures so I also offer guided night walks on the property every night. I would love to have you stay! Usually I'm in Mindo but I sometimes travel to other parts of Ecuador to see other species of animals in the wild. Usually Nick hosts if I'm away, and he's awesome too!

During your stay

The Bird Tower is located on the property where I live and run the night walks. Most of my time is spent here and I am very open to questions. I have extensive knowledge on the local fauna, though my specialty is nocturnal animals as well as amphibians and reptiles. If you have a specific interest please let me know and I can let you know what knowledge I have in this area. I also know the local area and attractions very well and can happily help you with any arrangements or give you my recommendations.

When making a reservation for more than one person, please indicate whether the main bedroom should have a queen size bed or two singles instead. Any additional people will have a single bed in the extra room.
