Following early reviewers' comments, we organised a private transfer to the lodge from Quito (with Metropolitan Touring) and it took 4.5 hours with two fairly short stops. But the journey is well worth it. This is an amazing place and the guiding is excellent. We had a local guide and an English-speaking guide and both were fantastic - very knowledgeable,... More

We stayed for the two nights with our family and truly enjoyed our time there. The lodges is beautiful, a crystal box int he middle of the rain forest.

We had high expectations, based on our travel agent's recommendations and reviews and we were not disappointed. We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute. First class accommodation, food, guides and wildlife. Every small detail is taken care of; quite an undertaking when you consider where the Lodge is situated. This is a birders paradise, in luxurious surroundings. The... More

Mashpi Lodge is a wonderful retreat in the cloud forest. We had fabulous guides just for the 4 of us, Oscar and Anderson who were so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the whole region. The wildlife was amazing especially the hummingbirds and toucans - it was well worth getting up at 6.30am to see the birds. The four of us were... More

Mashpi is 3.5 hours away from Quito the capital of Ecuador. You are driven from an altitude of 2900 mts to 800 mts. On the way you experience the change of flora and fauna from pine trees to orchids. The main entrance is a gate that reminds you of Jurassic Park but upon entering you find yourself pampered by a... More

Our family with two kids 6 and 9 stayed one night at this fantastic lodge in the middle of the cloud forest. Some of the rooms have two double beds so we all fit in nicely. All rooms have superb views straight into the jungle and the lodge itself is truly first class. Sure it is expensive but also an... More

We spent 3 nights here.It's an amazing experience that was totally different from anything else I have ever done. You are busy all the time, going on walks with a naturalist guide who comes with a huge telescope which is set up each time a bird is spotted nearby. The variety of birds is fantastic. But it is also the... More

I was the first Asian guests there back the 2012 in December and this Feb. I went there again with my family. My 7-year-old son really enjoyed this place and the service kept the same Though the road to there were still bumping and a little bit rough. It is a place worth going.

Mashpi is a beautifully-designed contemporary lodge, somehow nestled in an extraordinary reserve of rainforest in northern Ecuador. After a three and a half hour car journey from Quito, with the stunning landscapes changing at every corner, the final arrival into the Mashpi Reserve is along a rough track descending into the cloud forest that rightly gives Mashpi its name. Enormous... More
