Maquifucuna Things to Do: 18 reviews and 18 photos

During our stay in the Maquipucuna reserve we did make several hikes.

And on every hike we did see these banana plants (or are it trees?). Every plant was wearing a big amount of green bananas.

These bananas were used in several dishes by the locals. And also one evening we did see the ladies? using these huge banana leafs in order to bake some cake in it.
