A feast for the eyes for the novice and expert birder alike, sit and sip your coffee and marvel at the winged angels alighting at the feeders. We saw a dozen hummingbird species in less than an hour as well as the seven-colored Toucan barbet. Proprietor Rolando is happy to give you a coffee or tea with your birds, too.

It's a $5 cab ride from downtown Mindo (which, don't forget, is visible from up here in Panavision, when you're not looking at the birds).
