What you will do...

This 4 Day Amazon Cuyabeno Adventure shows you one of the most pristine places on earth. The Ecuadorian Amazon Region takes up almost the half of the country, starting from the eastern slope of the Andes, across Amazon rainforest and descends to the Amazon basin. It is defined by low altitude up to 1,000 meters, high temperatures between 25– 28 Celcius and daily rainfall.

This program is designed for adventurous travelers who love to experience nature and discover Amazon Cubyabeno without being disturbed by cell phones or wifi. You will stay at a simple eco-lodge with fresh water, normal toilets, comfortable beds and a common chill out place. You will have three meals a day on long tables together with the other guests. Activities during these days vary between wildlife spotting by canoe, hiking, and swimming. Find more information about the program per day below.

Adventure Itinerary

DAY 1 (L,D):
Our excursion begins in Lago Agrio at 09h30. If you go by plane, we will pick you up at the Lago Agrio airport at 09h55. If you go by bus, we'll pick you up at a central meeting point in town. We travel by bus or truck approx. 1 and a half hours to reach "Tarapoa" town where we have lunch. After 20 minutes we arrive in the Cuyabeno Bridge (the principal entrance of this Protect Reserve). We immediately journey down the river to our Lodge (approx. 2 hours). Then our excursion into the rainforest starts and along the beginning of the river we can observe some species of monkeys and birds. Finally, we arrive at the lodge. Time for a short relax and later a first walk around the lodge. After dinner, our bilingual naturalist guide gives us a briefing on the upcoming activities for the next few days and about the area.

DAY 2 (B,L,D):
After an early breakfast, we start our journey because the brisk morning hours are the best time to see the rainforest’s thriving activity. We trek into the jungle with our Naturalist guide who will share his wealth of knowledge with us. We also have the opportunity to learn about how life in the tropical rainforest co-exists in a fragile balance. Botanic information emphasizes the use of medicinal plants, which has been taught by the local ancestors for generations. We also find some species of amphibians, butterflies, centipedes and millipedes, snakes, birds, monkeys or any footprints of mammals in the trail. Next, We will return to the lodge to have lunch. Later we navigate along the Cuyabeno River to turn around the Kapok Island trying to find more species of monkeys. We also have a good chance of seeing the freshwater pink dolphins (Inia geo-forensic and Sotalia fluviatile). Before dinner, we venture into the forest to find species of insects, spiders, tarantulas, snakes or colourful frogs. The night world of the Amazon is perfect for spotting small species and enjoy the nocturnal sounds of the jungle.

DAY 3 (B,L,D):
An early activity will allow us to enjoy the nature with a good chance to watch some playful monkeys and some colorful birds. After breakfast, we follow the “Taricaya” that means turtle trail to visit the "Seoqueya" Community, where some local families of the Sionas Indigenous tribe live. A member of the family shows us how they prepare the "Yuca" bread which is called “Cassava” in English and our guide will explain the local traditions and culture from the past to the present. After, we navigate downstream to visit the shaman house where he teaches us the ancient healing traditions and his lifestyle using the spiritual practice of natural medicine. Next, we will return to the lodge to have lunch. Afterward, we'll have time to relax and to enjoy the place. In the afternoon we go out with our motor canoe upstream to visit the Laguna Grande where we navigate in the amazing lake and admire the flooded forest by black water or "Igapo," considered an incredible ecosystem in the jungle, dominated by the great Macrolobium trees which are homes of Epiphytes plants and bird. There is also time to swim in the lake while we admire the spectacular sunset in the rainforest. Before we return to the lodge, we'll venture in the river to search for Caimans (alligator family)and fishing bats.

DAY 4 (B,L):
The last early activity is a short canoe excursion to enjoy the sunrise over the jungle. This is a good opportunity for bird watching. It permits us to create the last memory of this wonderful place. After breakfast, you have time to prepare your luggage for the trip back. We navigate upstream to reach the Cuyabeno Bridge. Our bus or truck will take us back to Lago Agrio, arriving at approx. 14h30 either to catch the Bus or the plane back to Quito.

* For passengers going for long trip 5d/4n, the additional day includes a morning walk and an extra canoe excursion admiring the magnificent landscape in the afternoon and also a night walk.
