  5. Absolutely stunningly beautiful - great capture - presumably the Milpe Sanctuary & the Mindo Cloud Forest is a definite doer?? {:¬] Posted 10 days ago
    1. Oh yes, definitely. Within the larger area of Mindo there's plenty of nice stops. Bellavista is a main stay where you can explore for days whereas Milpe is more like a small stop for a day or so. Posted 10 days ago
      1. fingers crossed, some day!! Posted 10 days ago
