Reserva Biológica Maquipucuna - Hiking Quito - Ecuador

Approximately 90 minutes outside of Quito on the way to Mindo, the Maquipucuna reserve covers a huge sway of Ecuador’s cloud forest. The reserve has a number of tastefully decorated wooden cabañas, a restaurant that serves three meals a day, and some pretty trails, including one that heads up into primary cloud forest. To hike the trails, you may want to borrow a pair of the rubber boots that are available. This is a bird watchers haven, and additionally, in 2009, a number of Andean Spectacled Bears were spotted at the site.
