Imagine waking up in the Chocó Cloud Forest of Ecuador, surrounded by vivid butterflies and beautiful tanagers. Mashpi Lodge provides a one-of-a-kind immersive experience, with a glass wall separating you from the gorgeous mist-filled forest. This boutique hotel combines contemporary design with lush natural settings to create a pleasant refuge in the heart of the rainforest.
A Conservation Haven
Mashpi Lodge serves not only luxury guests but also has a huge impact on the local community. Over 80% of its workforce is drawn from the local area, ensuring crucial livelihoods in an area where logging and gold mining threaten the Chocó Cloud Forest’s fragile ecosystem. The goal of the lodge is anchored in conservation, guided by former Quito mayor Roque Sevilla, who purchased land to conserve this unique habitat and established the lodge to assist sustainable tourism.
Eco-Adventures that are Immersive
Mashpi Lodge allows tourists to participate in eco-adventures that immerse them in the beauty of the cloud forest. There are a variety of activities to choose from, like the Dragonfly Canopy Gondola, which offers quiet cable car rides above the treetops, and guided tours that expose the lodge’s crucial conservation programs. Enjoy excellent meals produced locally and prepared with forest tastes, all while reducing the lodge’s carbon footprint and empowering local female entrepreneurs. End your day on the viewing platform, where the cloud forest’s magic unfolds before your eyes as the sky turns purple, serenaded by the music of jungle life.
Mashpi Lodge provides an extraordinary experience combining luxury, conservation, and immersive adventures in one of the world’s most spectacular natural environments.
