THE MAQUIPUCUNA LEGACY
For 35 years Maquipucuna has acted as a beacon of light within the Chocó Andino bioregion, jump-starting conservation in continental Ecuador. Covering over 14,000 acres, the Maquipucuna Reserve is the product of a lifetime’s work. Maquipucuna has invested in the research and protection of one of the top 5 biodiversity hotspots in the world; including that of endangered species such as the Andean (spectacled) bear
LIVE THE MAQUIPUCUNA EXPERIENCE
Maquipucuna is a place for families, couples, adventurists, and wildlife lovers to learn, explore and play. We provide more than just the standard ecotourism experience, but a place for people to reconnect with nature and more importantly, give back to the community through the foundation that started it all: Fundación Maquipucuna
Over the last 35 years we have focused our attention on conserving the remaining unprotected forests in Ecuador’s most biodiverse regions through strategic land purchases and by helping local communities find economic alternatives to thrive in harmony with nature.
