As you pack keep in mind that Mindo tends to be quite tropical and wet. Make sure to pack:
- Layers of clothing, preferably quick dry items if you are packing light.
- Swimwear (there are waterfalls and rivers/streams nearby)
- Light sweaters for the evenings.
- Yoga attire.
- A waterproof jacket or poncho
- Long pants for hiking and for those mornings and evenings when mosquitos tend to bit more frequently.
- Sun protection: a light, long sleeved shirt, hat, sunscreen and sunglasses. The sun in Ecuador is strong and while Mindo gets its share of cloud cover, when the sun comes out, it may easily burn.
- Footwear: All-terrain shoes with good traction are ideal for nearby trails that may be somewhat muddy and slippery. Water-shoes or Vibrams are helpful near the river and waterfalls. Around the house you may want a pair of flip flops or sandals, which you can also purchase in Mindo.
- Your Kindle or computer, if you’re here as a digital nomad.
- A headlamp can be useful.
- A non-disposable water bottle (metal or glass recommended) to refill with fresh, filtered water from our spring.
- You can get cash at an ATM in Mindo, but it’s convenient to have some loose cash for your trip to Ecuador. Try to bring smaller bills; in $20 denominations or smaller. Larger bills, like 50s and 100s, are nearly impossible to use/exchange at regular shops.
- Since we aren’t in town, we suggest you bring any other essentials you might need, such as feminine hygiene products, supplements etc.
