Jamu Lodge: Detailed Itinerary

Day 1
Flight form Quito to Lago Agrio – Cuyabeno Lodge –Lagoon Swim and Dinner

In the morning, you will fly from Quito to Lago Agrio. Upon landing, you will take a private 2-hour bus ride to the entrance of the Cuyabeno River, where you will have a box lunch. At this point, visitors have to register in the Reserve’s office. The lodge’s naturalist guide will also give you information about the reserve, as well as share important recommendations with you and give you other tips before beginning your two-hour scenic boat ride on the Cuyabeno River to reach Jamu Lodge in the afternoon.

At that time, you will be shown to your room, where you can relax a little. After a siesta, we will leave the camp for a swim in the lagoon and watch a beautiful sunset in the middle of Laguna Grande. You will then return to the camp for dinner. You will spend the night in your bungalow with double beds and mosquito nets.

Day 3
Contact with Indigenous Amazonian Community and Shaman – Nighttime Jungle Safari

After breakfast, we depart to head to the Siona Community of Puerto Bolivar, the largest ethnic group in the Reserve. During this tour, you will learn their customs, traditions and way of life. You will be part of the elaboration of the Casabe – a local dish made of yucca (carbohydrates are the principal food of the community). A visit to the Shaman is also included. He will explain some more about life in the jungle. The trip takes 1-hour navigation downstream to get there, on the way it will be possible to admire the existing fauna along the Rio Cuyabeno such as birds, monkeys, snakes, pink dolphins, tortoises and many others. This is a full day excursion with Lunch in the Community. After that, we return to the lodge to go for a nocturnal hike through the primary forest in search of insects, spiders, geckos or scorpions and listen to the night sounds of the jungle. We will have dinner and spend the night in the lodge.
