how we started

David Brito (born in 1979 and from Canary Islands, Spain), came to Ecuador first time on holidays on April 2006.

Why? He made an MBA Master in Salamanca (Spain), in 2004 and met Victor, Paul and Ivan, 3 Ecuadorian guys that were in the same master and became very good friends!

He fell in love with Ecuador and decided in this first trip that he will come to live here. In 2007 he made a second trip of 5 weeks and he continued traveling around the country. In 2008 another trip to continue traveling and finally on 2010 he came to live to Ecuador and continue learning about this amazing country!

He decided to start his business in Mindo Cloud Forest because the Choco Andino is one of the best areas in the world for birding and organize photography tours. It is only 2 hours from Quito International Airport and less than 2 hours from Quito.

In 2013 started the construction of his boutique lodge and opened on 14 February 2015.

After 1 year and a half working in his lodge with the best reviews on TripAdvisor and Booking.com, he decided it was the moment to open his travel agency Dana Tours LLC, once he was giving advice to his guests about places to visit and tours in general and some of them recommended to not wait longer for opening the agency!

Dana Tours LLC is a family business (registered in the United States), that organize tours in Ecuador. We also registered our local operator at the Ecuadorian Ministry of Tourism.
