At Mapara Lodge we have focused in creating a dream place that allows our guests to stay in the beautiful region of Chocó with all the comforts. The sound of the sea will enchant you while enjoying the presence of the virgin rainforest. With 29 years of experience, Mapara Lodge responds to the needs of travelers that want comfort in front of a beach without neighbors, while experiencing tastes with the best sea dishes and enjoying great nature activities.
We are known in the area for our delicious local food. Our chef makes dishes with fish captured in the season prepared in different recipes, completely fresh, from the water to the table. Coconut and vegetables give the special local touch, and our ceviche stands out as a favorite dish.
¿WHAT IS MAPARA?
Mapara is the local name given to a crab species that is found on the pacific coast known internationally as the "halloween crab" (Gecarcinus quadratus) due to its flashing colors that makes it stand out and seem as if it would be carrying a costume.
The name was also born because for the founders as for the rest of the Mapara team, this region and this project are considered the maximum paradise.
