The Mindo Valley is meant to be a paradise for birdwatching. I saw about 5 different species of hummingbird which seems nice until you realise there are 132 different species to be found in Ecuador. Only 127 left to go! Then I went to Puerto Lopez which is the jumping off point for tours to Isla de la Plata, the so-called Poor Man’s Galapagos, more birds! Prepare yourself for lots of photos of birds.
