Hosteria Terrabambu Lodge: An amazing place to relax and enjoy natural surroundings in Mindo.

Adrenaline sports, nature and birdwatching are some of the activities that seduce visitors to the town of Mindo year-round.

Nestled in the heart of the cloud forest, only 2.5 hours away from Quito, Mindo is a popular getaway for us quiteños.  The perfect spot to recharge, connect with nature and explore the Mindo-Nambillo Cloud Forest.


About Terrabambu

Terrabambu is perched in the hillside of Mindo, providing space for a pool area with views of the unspoiled cloud forest.

The Lodge has 5 modern cabins with 2 floors or more, beautifully decorated. Each one of them with a bedroom and a full bathroom.

There is ample space around each cabin, which is ideal for those  who treasure privacy and seclusion in their vacation. 

At Terrabambu I was able to combine, the joy provided by the natural surroundings and  the fun  activities in the lodge.


The Cabins

This restaurant and lodge with its gorgeous location, succeeds to create a relaxing and magical ambiance. The cabins are built-in harmony with the surroundings, with comfortable, big spacious rooms, jacuzzi, private bathrooms on each floor and cable TV.




Terrabambu is located in a beautiful area, just 15 minutes from the main entrance to Mindo.  Google Maps can assist you to find the address if needed.


My first day I loved taking in the views while resting in the hammock on the balcony on the top floor of our cabin.

throughout our stay at  Terrabambu Lodge I was highly satisfied with the warm and professional service offered by the staff.

For our road trip it was wonderful that the hotel offers free parking among other amenities.




During my second day at Terrabambu, I decided to go in the pool and as I am basking in the equatorial sun I get to enjoy some colorful visitors, chirping and enhancing the already beautiful scenery.

The pool is located as a focal point for the cabins on that side of the lodge and visitors can enjoy beautiful views of the cloud forest from the pool area.

Another great feature of Terrabambu Lodge is the wide range of activities they offer insitu. Including canopy, ping-pong, birdwatching, pool and the swimming pool.


The restaurant

It was great to find the ample breakfast room warm and well-lit by the sun rays. Once guests set foot in the sitting area outside the restaurant they get to marvel with the scenic views of the valley of Mindo and the cloudforest below.

Breakfast is included, it has fruit, yogurt, bread, eggs, juice and coffee.

Enjoying dinner on the second day we had wonderful opportunities for a close encounter with some of the 156 species of birds spotted in Mindo.


I was able to capture on video a bit of the birdwatching experience at the Lodge. I loved admiring the colorful vibrant plumage of toucans from a near distance.

I loved the careful and tasteful planning behind this lodge.  Each detail designed to provide guests with awe-inspiring vistas, and having the heated pool as prime focus.

I have enjoyed the amenities offered by Terrabambu, from the free wi-fi, to the complimentary breakfast overlooking the valley of Mindo, perfect for birdwatching.  The service provided is warm and friendly and all cabins are spacious, comfortable, and provide lovely views.

I can highly recommend booking your stay here. Hosteria Terrabambu Lodge for me is the perfect place to enjoy a weekend getaway and recharge, near Quito. 


Imagine soaking in the equatorial sunshine, birds chirping while venturing to the pool area while you lay in a bench by the pool. This is what Terrabambu provides its guests.
