Forest Excursion

Maquipucuna Ecolodge and Trek

Maquipucuna, Ecuador

Prices From: $220 - $325

The Maquipucuna Ecolodge and Reserve is located in the cloud forest and owned and operated by the non-profit Maquipucuna Foundation. The cloud forest gets its name from its relative altitude which allows them to catch and create clouds that humidify the forest. Within the Reserve is a comfortable yet unpretentious lodge which provides spacious double and family rooms and hot showers for up to 18 people as well as quality local food.

It also offers a magnificent porch where you can relax and enjoy the sounds of the forest carried on the warm breeze while watching flying colors of birds against a background cape of green foliage.

While at the Reserve, the lodge will be your home-base for exploring the surrounding forest in the company of our naturalist and local guides. Your guides can tailor your activities to your requests. While at Maquipucuna you will enjoy bird-watching, hiking, swimming in waterfalls, or just lounging in the hammocks.

Through your visit to the Maquipucuna Reserve you will be contributing directly to the conservation of this area, including the vitally important spectacled bear monitoring program.
