Thank you so much for an incredible & beautiful experience. Everyone has said it already. “This is really a piece of heaven”. The food is delicious, cabins comfortable and staff helpful & kind. Javier and Paulina are very knowledgable & outgoing. This has been the experience of a lifetime for me.

Just great! Not sure how we will be able to suitably describe it here. Must be one of the best places on earth – (minus the biting insects).
Thanks to everyone.

We had a magnificent stay. The Cloud Forest is more than we had ever anticipated. We saw all the birds we had targeted before the trip and many, many more. Julia, Pauline, Tom â€“ all the staff, you are the greatest. How could a person better celebrate a 61st birthday? Thank you!
We came here just for 1 night and we had to stay for 2! Not that that’s enough but 2 is better than one. Everything was super from start to finish and so unexpected too… We’re the first Maltese to come to El Monte and I’d dare say probably even in Mindo but I’m sure we wond be the last. We’ll definitely recommend this little paradise to friends and… just in case they don’t heed our advice, we’ll surely visit again sometime!

sitting in the hammock and hearing the birds and river , simply magical. This is a very special place and everything has been splendid.

All the best,

Fauloso! We’ve stayed at other EcoLodges in Central and South America—yours is the best we’ve enjoyed to date. For birders this is truly a paradise and the staff is first rate…
Danny the bird expert is amazing, with abilities to spot , identify by call and command of the names in English…
