Choco Andino Mashpi Ecuador | Plan South America


Considered one of the few mega-diverse hotspots on earth, Tumbes-Chocó-Magdalena region has a high density of endemic species ready to be seen by visitors. Glide through the clouds on the extraordinary sky bike and gaze at the uninterrupted beauty of the cloud forest.

Life in Tumbes-Chocó-Magdalena is beaming with electric blue butterflies, waterfalls, howler monkeys, toucans and the greatest profusion of orchids and hummingbirds on the planet. With over five hundred different species of birds, waking up at the break of dawn will lead a birdwatcher to paradise. Witnessing the iconic Andean cock-of-the-rock during a courtship dance is the lodge owner’s most beloved experience.
