This 5,000-acre private ecological reserve in the Amazon works closely with the local Quichua community. Known for its comfort in the jungle, expect to find one of the largest butterfly farms in Ecuador and a 900-foot canopy walkway. Each of 26 rooms with thatched roofs contain two double beds, ceiling fans, and a private bathroom with a flushing toilet and hot shower.

We will never forget our stay here and I cannot begin to explain how amazing it was! The journey to the lodge was jaw dropping enough and then you step into your room and you’re in the jungle. So quiet, so comfortable, so relaxing. We were assigned two people as our guides Carolina and Gerry, they were both amazing and helped us see so much incredible wildlife and made our time extra special. Birds, the monkeys, sloth and insects were incredible, even the tarantulas were ok for someone who really doesn’t like spiders!
The food is wonderful and all the staff so friendly and welcoming
We stayed for 4 nights and loved every minute of it. The staff were great and very helpful. Many excursions into the Amazon both during the day and also at night. The setting where you have breakfast, lunch and dinner is over the lake and has stunning views. You get to visit local tribes and see how they live. Highly recommend.
