Getting to the Lodge

We know it can often be daunting to travel in an area you are not familiar with, but Casa Divina makes it easy to find us just outside of Mindo in the Ecuadorian cloud forest.  We have listed several different options for travel from Quito or other areas of Ecuador. If you have questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at the lodge.
