How we got here... 

The story began in the summer of 1985, with two young visionaries, Rodrigo and Rebeca, a day trip to the country about 30 miles west of Quito and a bold vision.This trip marked their lives after seeing the distant forest glittering with clouds, the abundance of orchids, and the plethora of animals, many of which remain undescribed to science. Seeing this pristine ecosystem adjacent to the devastation and destruction of the neighboring deforested areas inspired these young dreamers to do something.


They promised to set aside 100 hectares with the idea that if every Ecuadorian did the same, the forests would be protected. But they did much more than that.

Looking ahead...

We are in the midst of expanding our ecotourism and coffee operations and supporting the creation of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Choco Andean region. In the medium term we aim for a more progressive and holistic project in and around the Maquipucuna Reserve. The new development will integrate the principles of a circular economy and regenerative ecology in harmony with nature. If you are interested to invest, help or learn about our project, please write to us.
