Just back from the Cuyabeno river jungle, a surreally peaceful world with minimal material stimulation. A fantastic trip! Highlight of the trip was our tour guide, Elvis G., to whom this review was dedicated to. His group consist of our two families, including one senior and four kids ranging from 8 to 10. Elvis was attentive to everyone, answering our...

The Cuyabeno lodge is one of the older lodges in the area and their experience shows. They ran a very nice operation, providing good service and excellent facilities given the remote location. The setup was ecologically sensitive and they seemed to have a good relationship with the indigenous community. The food was a surprising highlight - very well done (outstanding...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Built in 1989, the Cuyabeno Lodge was the first lodge in the park; the owners believed that the rainforest traveler should be accommodated in conditions which would be both in harmony with the surrounding environment and attuned to the needs of the modern visitor. At Neotropic Turis, we, the owners of the Cuyabeno Lodge, are the pioneers in the tourist operation and we built the first Eco friendly lodge in the Cuyabeno National Park. The Cuyabeno Lodge is one of two lodges located right on the lake and one of the few lodges that never gets flooded. We recently built a canopy watch tower and 3 new deluxe rooms. We have 24 hours electricity from solar energy, the only silent electrical motors in the park for excursions and hot showers. ... more   less
