THE MAQUIPUCUNA LEGACY

(mă-kē-pū-kū-nă)

For 32 years Maquipucuna has acted as a beacon of light within the Chocó-Andino bioregion,  jump starting conservation in continental Ecuador. Covering 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. As an NGO 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

FUNDACIÓN MAQUIPUCUNA

Over the last 32 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.
