Cuyabeno Lodge in Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve


When Cuyabeno Lodge began operating in 1988, we believed that the rainforest traveler should be accommodated in conditions harmonious with the surrounding environment as well as attuned to the needs of the modern visitor.

We are the pioneers in tourism operation in Cuyabeno, Amazonia Ecuador and we built the first Eco--‐friendly Lodge in the Cuyabeno National Park.

We offer 7 independent timber constructed cabins (cabañas) with thatched roofs, each providing double accommodation with a tiled private bathroom and hot water showers. Additionally, we can offer 3 superior rooms located in the tower, each with a balcony and a larger private bathroom.  From these rooms there is a spectacular view over the forest canopy!

The Lodge facilities comprise a restaurant, reading and information room and a drinks bar.

Electricity is provided by solar energy.

Our naturalist guides are bilingual and the Siona provides the canoe transportation.

Our restaurant serves international dishes, as well as traditional Ecuadorian specials’, and we can cater for special requirements at no additional cost.

Our tours are 4 days/3 nights or 5 days/4 nights.

Itineraries and activities to explore the Wildlife Reserve can be adjusted according to group interests. Groups of more than 4 have the option to start the tour on the day of their choice (no Wednesdays and no Sundays).

Groups of 1--‐3 travellers be asked to join another group.

Please enquire regarding availability. We welcome and encourage visits from families students and researchers.
