Outdoor And wonders there are: I witnessed the region’s biodiversity on my daily excursions with Mashpi’s guides. Bird lovers can experience hummingbirds in their natural habitat, as hundreds of them congregate around the lodge. A step up from zip lining, adventurers can sky bike almost 700 feet across the forest’s roof, peering down over a gorge where rivers flow between rocks and trees. To get your primate fix, you can walk the Howler Monkey trail to Mashpi’s Life Centre, where you can view a number of species from the comfort of the lodge’s expansive wooden deck. Once inside, the butterflies that inhabit the region swarm.  Photo 8 of 11 in Within Ecuador's Most Beloved Cloud Forest, A Luxury Lodge

Outdoor The last night of your stay, we recommend venturing into the jungle after dark. The Mashpi guides will reveal a land that’s hidden from the sun, where snakes slither in small streams and frogs rest on hanging leaves. You’ll find the same joy that Sevilla first found on his initial visit to Mashpi: "Just as there is a visible world in Mashpi, there is a hidden world which the guests do not necessarily see."
