What a hidden eco travel treasure! World class hotel rooms, staff, dining, activities in the rainforest and get away from it all on this planet. The cable trip above the canopy 1,000 feet in the air. The sounds, effect and reality of a hidden place on earth, a total WOW!

Try and make time for this experience when you are in Ecuador! We booked for 3 nights, and had 2 full days, and 2 half days of adventures. Many people seemed to book for 2 nights only, but our experience confirmed that having the 3rd night was much better. Our room, 17, on the top floor perhaps seemed to be...

The lodge itself is a beautiful building set within a fantastic area. We stayed there 2 nights/3 days in November and were highly impressed with the organisation of the days and the professionalism of the guides. The only downside we had was after booking one of the Yaku Suites after seeing a picture on Mashpi website of a corner room...

The stay increased our appreciation for Ecuador's approach to sustainable tourism. We haven't encountered many Lodges that combine such a commitment to the environment while showing their guests the benefits of protecting the habitat. The infrastructure investment is amazing with their Dragonfly gondola and Skybike rides above the forest canopy. Thanks to our guides, Fernando and Jose for the excellent...

The best part of our visit to Mashpi Lodge were our guides, Fernando Arias and his aid, Klever. Fernando's charm and flexibility in guiding to our tastes made our hiking excursions exciting and fun.
