Meet the jungle habitants

Snakes, tarantulas, lizards, thousand feet bugs and  many more! Every day our professional guides will take you on walks into the jungle where from the first step you can spot a baby snake resting on the leaf or a spider fighting with the mantis. You will get to see the entire different world of species, be amazed by their colours, learn their names and even behaviours. The most interesting part is this is a perfect opportunity to change your perspectives about wildlife in the Amazon Rainforest. It usually seems scary and dangerous but with the right knowledge and approach the experience can be pretty fun! That’s why our guides are there for you if you have any questions about the wildlife or plants living in the amazone.

Enjoy delicious meals made with love

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are always served on time. And great news for snack lovers! In between main meals you can enjoy cookies, fruits and sweets.

Embrace  nature from the top of our birdwatching tower

Everybody wonders how the Amazon Rainforest looks from the view of birds. We already know it is beautiful, vast and breathtaking. But nothing compares to the real experience. When standing up so high in a tower in the middle of the amazone it feels empowering, inspiring and something out of this world. Sunsets play beautiful colours of pink, violet, orange and birds let us see their beauty closer. All insects, mammals, flying species produce sounds that perfectly play in the ear. Here is where true transformation happens. Without even realizing we find peace, recognize our essence, feel appreciation and  gratitude to nature.

Hop on canoe to watch dolphins and caimans

Rivers in Cuyabeno Reserve may not allow us to see through but they are full of fish and underwater predators. Our guides know very well where and when we can spot grey and pink dolphins. Usually they like to hang out at the place where two rivers meet: Cuyabeno and Aguarico rivers. This is an ideal moment to see about 90% of their body because Dolphins in the Amazon Rainforest are heavier than in the ocean. For this reason, they don’t jump high up. But don’t be sad, there are caimans waiting  for you to show off their beautiful patterns. Especially at night, with flash lights you have a chance to look straight in the eyes of caimans. Oh, this feeling in the gut is hard to describe in words!
