CUYABENO RIVER LODGE


CABAAS CUYABENOWithin the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve of Cuyabeno River is the Lodge. This lodge is located just 25 minutes by motorized canoe upriver from the bridge entrance to the reserve, we are the only lodge located in the upper part of the reservation in one of the most fragile Cuyabeno, because we have 231 hectares in this area which we are committed to protect and maintain this place as one of the most diverse ecosystems in our country.

So we've implemented seven different trails as five alternative trails and two adventure trails in which we conduct tours, this has been done with the aim that each have a space of time to recover and are not affected by continuous walking same location.

 

All lodges are built of split-level wood in order not to affect the animals living in the lodge and are communicated with bridges, rustic style each with private bathroom, proper beds with mosquito nets.

We have various types of cabins to suit your needs and preferences:

Marital, Doubles, Triples, Quadruples, and Family sized cabins with 6 beds; and we are also building a marital suite. Each cabin has a complete private bathroom (2 in the case of our 6 bed rooms), mosquito nets over each bed, electricity (120v)

We offer programs and tours in the park from three days to twelve days, where can you share amazon jungle life and will also live with indigenous families Siona. All information of our adventure programs in the jungle and their rates can search here:

Community Work

Indigena oriente

Being part of a community in the Rainforest, helping local families to sell their agro-ecological products to lodges in Cuyabeno, teaching English in a local school, making handicrafts with a local group of woman…. We have many projects that are looking for an enthusiastic volunteer!

As an ecolodge in Cuyabeno we believe that it’s important that local people can benefit from our activities. Therefore we started cooperation between the lodge and the families in the area surrounding it. Together we are looking for a way to establish a sustainable cooperation between these two groups, in order to improve life standards of families surrounding the lodge as well as offering healthier food to tourists visiting the reserve.

The community of families we are supporting are mostly farmers, living on to the one road that runs through the entrance of the Cuyabeno reserve. This community exists of ten families and is called “El Mirador”. Until now this families received no support from any organization, unlike many other communities in and around Cuyabeno. These receive plenty support from oil companies, NGO’s, cooperation’s, and so on. Mainly because of this lack of attention, but also simply because they are producers living closest to the reserve, we offered them this chance for cooperation.

As a result of this cooperation came out different ideas for possible projects. To help executing these, volunteers are more than welcome. On this page you can find more specific information about the projects, what are the housing possibilities and furthermore the profile we are looking for.
