The Cuyabeno Lodge is ideally located in Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, which is the best Amazon national park in Ecuador and probably in South America for seeing wildlife. The location within the reserve is also of key importance to spot the different fauna and flora. The Cuyabeno Lodge is built on a seasonal island in the Cuyabeno Lake, you step right out of bed into the place where watching animals is at its best! Moreover, because it is very important to wake up early to see the most wildlife activity, you don’t have to wake up to early in this Lodge, because you already are where all the wildlife is.
The Lodge boast of a modern solar installation, which provides light and hot water all day and night long. More than anything, the Cuyabeno Amazon Rainforest Lodge, Ecuador, is cozy and fun and it was the first facility in the reserve. It is a great place to make friends, and many of our guests have found themselves new friends across many borders; some friendships have now lasted more than 20 years!

One of the best ways to explore the rainforest is by canoe and Cuyabeno with its maze of waterways provides you with ample opportunities to experience this wet and wild green world in a way that is intimate and highly rewarding.
You are guided through the forest by an indigenous guide from the Siona Indian community in his canoe, as well as a bilingual naturalist. Activities include canoeing in motorized and dugout crafts, hiking, bird watching, night walks and swinging in your hammock.
