Your stay with us goes beyond simply being able to experience this beautiful place — it also helps us preserve it! Mashpi is part of the ecologically important Choco biogeographical region that spans Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru.
Unfortunately, only about 2% of the original forest belonging to the Choco-Andean forest remains intact. Your stay at Mashpi helps fund our research and the conservation efforts that are helping protect this last remaining patch. Additionally, we work hand-in-hand with the local community living around the Reserve.
