Cuyabeno Lodge - 4 Nights Itinerary

Cuyabeno River Lodge sits on 300 acres of its own privately protected zone of the Cuyabeno Reserve. The lodge’s mission is to promote eco-tourism experiences in an environmentally and culturally safe manner, consciously protecting the delicate jungle habitat and working with local indigenous communities to safely reveal the Cuyabeno’s natural and cultural beauty to its visitors. On this 5-day/4-night Amazon adventure, you will stay in traditional rainforest cabins (with private bathrooms) on the banks of the Cuyabeno River, take jungle hikes with a bilingual guide, learn about medicinal plants, visit the “Laguna Grande” lake, prepare a traditional food dish with an indigenous family, row in native-style canoes, go piranha fishing and birdwatching, take nocturnal animal walks, and experience much more! Between activities, there will be plenty of time to kick back in a hammock or cool off in the Cuyabeno River as part of this relaxing as well as exciting Amazon tour.
