After 13 years away I returned to Ecuador to visit my family. This was not my first trip to Maqui (I had volunteered there in my youth) but it was certainly the most fulfilling. I can not say enough about the experience - the place has to be the closest thing you get to a Garden of Eden. Walking out at 7 am to see the cloud forest is simply awesome. From the point of view of the accommodation: first rate, the food was superb (the best Empanadas de Queso on the Continent). I was impressed with the guide, Arsenio, whom I had met years before as a local fellow from the township nearby: now he is able to guide, professionally, in very good English! - The work of the people running Maquipucuna has certainly paid off. What a place! What an Experience.
