THE MAQUIPUCUNA LEGACY
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
Maquipucuna is located a mere two hours from Ecuador's capital, Quito. Tucked in between the mountains of the Choco-Andino Biosphere reserve, the reserve is the perfect place to learn, discover, and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city!
