Tarabita (Cable Car) Jun 29, 2016
There is a cable car (Tarabita) that spans the canyon over 530 meters of air space… It is located around 5-6km from Mindo town uphill and usually people take pick-up taxi trucks that overcharge you up the hill and you can walk back downhill yourself. You can’t miss this place because it is on the bend, has yellow building and large parking lot. Few interesting guys are manning this place and they operate this cable car till around 5pm. Cart fits 5-6 people, and has extra security cable so it is fairly good. Engine that moves it is pulled from some Japanese truck and it works like Swiss watch… Trip is pretty fast but you’ll have time to enjoy breeze and beautiful view. Price of 5$ covers both ways and you just need to yell when you are ready to go back (or use phone to call them).
