Welcome to chocolate heaven! El Quetzal de Mindo is the ultimate destination for cacao and culinary enthusiasts alike.
Nestled in the cloud forest of the Andes Mountains, El Quetzal is the ultimate destination for cacao and culinary enthusiasts alike. We offer exclusive tours of our bean-to-bar chocolate factory, located on-site. You will see (and sample!) every step of the chocolate making process from the trees to the finished chocolate bars. Plus taste our delectable, world-famous brownies.
We also offer premier lodging and dining in picturesque Mindo, Ecuador. Located a short walk from the Parque Central de Mindo, you are privy to toucan, parrot, and of course our namesake quetzal sightings. Enjoy the beautiful view of the Ecuadorian Andes from your room and wake up to fresh-roasted coffee, breakfast, and juices from our organic gardens.
