Our Mission

We believe that travel expands horizons and nourishes the soul, but sometimes the adventure that you’re looking for is closer to home than you’d think. The Philippines is made up of 17 regions and more than 7,107 islands, with so much variation and richness in culture, food, natural sights—and that’s not even including festivals such as Sinulog and Malasimbo!

"Maqotana" comes from the Kampampangan phrase Mako Tana, which means Let’s go! That pretty much captures our mission: to invite you to rediscover the beauty of the Philippines, right alongside a diverse and ever-expanding community of explorers.
