The Lodge

The Lodge

When you are looking for a Mindo hotel why not try our cloud forest lodge instead? Our main lodge and four two-story luxuriously finished wood cabins are located 1.2 km (3/4 mi.) outside of town on 2.7 hectares (6.5 acres) of secondary cloud forest. The lodge offers incredible food and drinks, common area with wi-fi and each room has a private porch with hammock, spacious living quarters and an elegant bathroom with a full-size, stone-lined bathtub. On site there are cloud forest views from every room and two self-guided hikes that offer great lookout points. Contact us with questions or for room and cabin pricing and availability. You can also book a room or cabin online.

Try Casa Divina Lodge instead of a traditional Mindo Hotel

At Casa Divina we are proud to offer comfortable and elegant accommodation in the middle of the Ecuadorian cloud forest. We provide delicious home-style meals and a cozy place to rest for those spending their day adventuring. As well as an experienced bird guide, Efrain is a talented carpenter and has demonstrated his love for wood in each of the hand-built cabins. He is also responsible for almost all of the wooden furniture in the lodge. Rather than an average Mindo hotel you can stay in a family-oriented lodge that was lovingly built by its owners.

As a family-run business we are focused on providing excellent service to our clients and remaining an active part of our community. We greatly value all of those that work with us and are proud to have a dedicated staff that is happy to be here.  It makes our cloud forest lodge more warm and family-friendly than other Mindo hotels. Casa Divina is a place where life slows down. A place where you are invited to relax on the sofa with a good book, or in your hammock for a refreshing siesta. Come experience it for yourself.

Mindo Family Friendly Lodging in the Cloud Forest

At Casa Divina we welcome families that travel together, as well as guests with young children. The owners, Molly and Efrain, have two children of their own and know what a great opportunity and advantage it is for children to experience a broader sense of the world through travel. When you are looking for family friendly lodging in the cloud forest think of Casa Divina first.  With a homey atmosphere, private cabins and a nature reserve on site we are the perfect place for dedicated birdwatchers, honeymooners or a traveling family.

Our meals are a healthy blend of traditional Ecuadorian cuisine and international fare. And don't forget the desserts. Each evening a unique sweet inspiration is served from the ovens of the Sweet Goddess Bakery. For those who can't get enough of our cooking (or just want to stay in for the day) we offer lunch, snacks, drinks and coffee and tea all day long. Unlimited purified drinking water is also available in your room as well as in the main house.

Make Mindo Ecuador your home away from home

Mindo is a small town located in the Ecuadorian western lowlands (more commonly known as the cloud forest) where so many ideals come together: the climate is just right (the nickname for this valley is "the land of eternal spring"), the biodiversity will make even the most amateur nature seeker giddy with excitement. Malaria does not exist in Mindo (no pills, no side effects), and the community is conscientious and moving ahead in the eco-tourism movement. You will see informative signs posted throughout town about the effects of pollution and all households and businesses separate our waste into organic and non-organic bins. The young people from Mindo are proud of their town, their work and the opportunity to have an international experience in a small rural town. Join us in Mindo, Ecuador and find a new home away from home.
