Environmentally-conscious Mashpi Lodge is an impressive and magical retreat hidden inside a 1200-hectare private reserve, in the Ecuadorian Cloud Forest. Built on raised ground with a 360° forest view, there are 22 well-furnished rooms and suites. Meals are served in a towering restaurant and showcase the best of local cuisine. The lodge has a canopy gondola that is used to transport guests on a 2km experience above and through the tree canopy. Guests can go bird watching, take night walks and swim in refreshing waterfalls.
**Please note that the gondola, although constructed, is not operational at present. This is due to a pending government permit.
