Treasure in Mindo, la Bickok

What truly sets a place apart and gives it the wow factor is the people who inhabit it. Their arrival with stories makes time fly, leaving a memorable feeling about the place just left. Ecuador is filled with an interesting story behind. In the North West area of Pichincha lies the rainforest region known as Choco, home to the town of Mindo.

A place with 500 bird species, including 328 hummingbird species, and over 2000 flora species. If you add in the midst of all that natural beauty, an eco-lodge that leans to preserve its environment and bond with its surroundings in harmonic ways, then you have La Bicok a Treasure in Mindo.

Treasure in Mindo

Sebastian, the owner, a renowned architect in France for his contemporary designs, left his country to pursue a dream: traveling South America in a motorhome with his family. That’s how they started in 2012 until 2014. Three years and many countries later, the family discovered a piece of land in the charming, remote town of Mindo. Its charm resided in the contact with nature that provides to its inhabitants. Now, with a nearby plot of land and the sale of their motorhome, La Bicok started to take shape in 2015.

First Impression

Our first visit to La Bicok was during a Mindo scouting trip, seeking a place with a story to share. La Bicok was just starting with few cabañas for their customers. The parking was designed with some spots for campers and mobile houses. That night, two families shared humorous tales from Alaska, while Sebastian recounted his family’s travel adventures. With Sebastian’s bonfire, great wine, and food, Mindo became the perfect overnight destination, adding warmth and enjoyment.

Since then Ecuador Bike Rental by Sleipner has been using La Bicok as our favourite place to stay in town. Not one single customer has made a claim about the place, and since is close to town, its easy to have a beer in town, have a walk around the waterfalls and enjoy some off-road with the motorcycles around, practice river crossing and sceneries.

Since 2017, Ecuador Bike Rental staff has been put lots of effort to polish its knowledge about the country. As a 100% Ecuadorean company, our goal is to promote our country with its real culture core by visiting different areas, trying different flavours and talking to the people that makes this country unique. No other company can say the same.
