Casa Verde / Mindo is located between the coast and Quito, however it is still a 3 hour drive to the nearest beach, Pedernales, in the tropical coastal province of Esmeraldas. If you're planning to visit beaches in Manabi, like Ayampe, you can expect a much longer drive, between 7-8 hours.
If your plan is to only visit for a short term (less than 90 days/3 months), you can do so on a tourist visa, which you receive upon entry. If you wish to extend that, you can do so for another 3 months. Click here for more info on extending your tourist visa in Ecuador.
We receive a maximum of 3 guests at one time. Exclusivity ensures personalized attention in your daily yoga practice and enough space and tranquility for a truly restorative retreat.
Casa Verde is located on the outskirts of Mindo, a pleasant town in the Ecuadorian cloudforest, about 2.5 hours from the Ecuadorian capital of Quito. You can find us on Google Maps!
Casa Verde is in a secluded area outside of Mindo town but is still only a 15 minute drive from the center of town. You can walk into town too, it takes about 1 hour.
