Bolivia: Mapajo Ecolodge

Bolivia

Mapajo Ecolodge

The Mapajo Lodge was built by us, the people of the Quiquibey River, using mostly local materials and based on our traditional style of construction. The lodge is the point of departure for arriving to the different streams and rivers, forest, mountains and communities that make up all the places to discover in our Territory.

MAPAJO is fully owned and operated by the indigenous communities of the Quiquibey River. We created MAPAJO to generate income through sustainable tourism and the protect our forest, animals and way of life. All profits from MAPAJO are used to finance small community projects to improve the quality of life for our families and communities. We want you to enjoy our rainforest and cultures with all they have to offer with as minimal an impact as possible. Our approach to tourism is based on respect for our natural and cultural heritage.
