For 33 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.

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.

The Maquipucuna Reserve is the closest pristine rainforest from Quito. It spans over 14,000 acres of privately protected cloud forest at the heart of the Chocó Andino Biosphere Reserve, one of the earth's top three biodiversity hotspots. The reserve covers a vast diversity of ecozones between 900m (2900 ft) and 2785m (9100 ft), meaning you can find a huge diversity of wildlife that call Maquipucuna home.
