Where in the world are our guests from?

August 2, 2016

August is a wonderful month to visit Mindo.  The dry season is fully underway, with gorgeous sunny mornings and (relatively) little rain.  Plus, the summer holidays in the Northern Hemisphere bring many tourists to Mindo and to Reserva Las Tangaras.

But where do all these people come from?  We decided to find out.

For the past five years, we have asked guests to write their country of origin in our guestbook.  Now, we have quite an impressive data set to share with you all.

From June 2011 to July 2016, the guestbook at Las Tangaras has been signed 760 times.  These guests represent 36 nations and every continent (except Antarctica).

Guests Map

Thank you for this lovely graphic.

(By the way, any guesses as to what the map colors signify?  Hint: It has nothing to do with our dataset, and everything to do with our location…)

It probably comes as no surprise that the United States have contributed the most guests to Las Tanagaras, since Life Net Nature is a nonprofit based in the USA.  But some of the other Top 10 Countries surprised us.  Do they surprise you?

Top Ten (actually eleven) home countries of Las Tangaras guests

Here the distribution of all 36 countries, territories, and autonomous regions that our guests call home.

In the graphic above, the number next to each country represents the number of guests  from that country.  The chart on the right is a zoomed-in version of the white slice of the chart on the left, representing countries with fewer than 5 visitors.

As you can see, exactly ten countries have sent us only one visitor: Norway, the Canary Islands, India, Singapore, Nicaragua, Panama, Japan, Peru, Uruguay, and Brazil.  If you were one of those visitors, we sure do appreciate you!

Truly, we appreciate the diversity all of our guests, especially since they all bring such interesting travel stories.  If you’d like to be added to our guestbook (and any future infographics), please drop by for a visit!
