Bellavista cloud forest reserve and lodge
Bellavista private reserve is located inside the buffer zone of the Mindo-Nambillo protected forest. The lodge, which accommodates a maximum of 40 people, is a peaceful alternative away from the masses. It is a great centre for bird-watching, and it also offers guided treks through the forest. Visitors stay in an unusual four-storey geodesic dome with a thatched roof, a budget hostel and campsite are also available.
