This was a trip that left me without words – I had never experienced anything like it before. Let me take you to …

Before arriving in Ecuador, I had places in mind which I wanted to visit. Mindo’s cloud forest was a destination on top of my travel-bucket-list. When I finally arrived, it did not disappoint me! The scenery was by far more beautiful than I expected. The cloud forest experience started way before arriving in Mindo, as you could see the landscape change every few minutes…

After a long bus ride from Quito, my friend and I arrived at the small coastal town of Puerto Lopez early in the morning. A town that does not look like much at a first glance, but appeared to be a place you will not want to leave again. With a tuk tuk we were taken to our cozy hostel. Later that day, the tuk tuks took us to the beach of Puerto Lopez…

Finally, I accomplish to take a somewhat decent photo of the clouds that mysteriously entangle the ancient trees above me while the car finds its way through the mud. We just passed the entrance gate of the reserve and are following the five-kilometer long dirt road offering us an interesting taste of what is yet to come. It is hard to imagine that the small road through the…
