Cotococha Lodge 2-Night Itinerary

Cotococha Amazon Lodge is located just 200 km (125 miles) southeast of Quito, making the Amazon accessible to you after only a scenic 5-hour drive from Ecuador's capital city. The area surrounding the lodge forms part of the Upper Amazon Basin, known as one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world and characterized by small indigenous Kichwa communities and abundant vegetation. All of this means that on this 3-day/2-night Amazon tour, you’ll have a convenient opportunity for experiencing authentic Amazonian culture and amazingly bio-diverse wildlife. Amazon adventure at its best!


“My wife and I just completed a 5-day tour around the Cotopaxi volcano and the stunning Quilotoa loop – overall an excellent trip and wonderful experience.”Bernd Bassalleck

Day 2
Waterfall Visit – Rainforest Exploring – Birding

AM: After breakfast, we depart by canoe upriver for ten minutes, arriving at a small riverbank where we begin a fun and thrilling one hour walk, marveling at the secondary forest’s diverse flora and fauna. After a while, we’ll find ourselves at a breathtaking waterfall, “La Cascada de Latas,” where we will take a refreshing swim in its clear crystal waters and enjoy the surrounding views. Mixed with the jungle sounds, this will make for an unforgettable experience. We will return along the same route at have lunch at the lodge.

PM: After lunch we will put on our “wet gear” (rubber boots & rain poncho) to start an exciting walk in the rainforest, ready to find the secret wonders of the mysterious hidden jungle. Your expert native guide will explain in detail the characteristics of amazing plant species that possess medicinal properties and how these were used by the jungle’s inhabitants in earlier times. We’ll also observe a great variety of insects as well as small groups of monkeys racing through giant trees. Though we will need some luck to observe them, you will have to stay very quiet to admire these beautiful creatures. Dozens of curious colorful birds will likely tag along with us during our walk, whistling enchanted notes that delight our senses. After about three hours of walking, we will return to the lodge, where that evening we will have dinner and gather around the fireplace. That night you should have a good and peaceful sleep delighted by the sounds of the jungle.

Traveler Reviews

“The trip was excellent from beginning to end. The Isabella II was a fine ship and the crew and guides were all of the highest quality. I would recommend them to others. For us, the ship was the perfect size – not too small and not too large.”Walter Squire
