5 DAYS IN THE BEST ECO LODGES IN ECUADOR
DAY 1: LAGO AGRIO - CUYABENO BRIDGE - CUYABENO LODGE
You will arrive at either Lago Agrio or the Cuyabeno Bridge, where Cuyabeno Lodge's services will start, depending on whether you choose to drive or fly over the Andes and into the Amazon Basin. The itinerary's final section explains the numerous arrival choices. If you arrive in Lago Agrio, shared transportation will pick you up at Hotel D'mario at 9 a.m.
You'll be transported to the "Cuyabeno Bridge" (a distance of 100km), where you'll meet your guide and eat lunch somewhere nearby. You can get to the Cuyabeno Bridge quickly if you take a private bus. You will then be driven the remainder of the way to Cuyabeno Lodge in Laguna Grande along the Cuyabeno River in a motorized canoe. You may take in the diversity of the animals while floating along the river for around two hours.
Please be aware that the river's water level may fluctuate depending on the amount of rainfall. The boat might not be able to immediately reach the resort during the drier seasons. However, if you must travel the remaining distance, Cuyabeno staff members and the Siona Community canoe operators will help you with your possessions. It would take 15 to 20 minutes to walk easily. Following check-in at Cuyabeno Lodge, you and your guide will embark on a tour of the lagoon to see the animals, go swimming, or take a canoe excursion to see the sunset.
Your multilingual naturalist guide will discuss the fauna, medicinal plants, forest environment, and indigenous life as you stroll through the "terra firma forest" after breakfast. You will have time to rest and unwind when you get back before lunch.
After that, you'll travel on a dugout boat journey to regions of the flooded forest with Macrolobium trees covered in copious amounts of epiphytes in an effort to see monkeys and birds. Following supper, a night stroll will be taken in the main forest to seek for insects and see the nighttime flora and fauna.
You will travel by canoe to the Siona indigenous settlement by traveling downstream along the Cuyabeno River after getting up and eating breakfast. When they prepare the 'traditional casabe,' you may watch and take part in an activity. Your tour guide will explain their way of life and share his or her ideas with you.
After returning to the lodge for lunch, you'll have the afternoon free to take a siesta or a cooling dip in the Laguna Grande. After supper, you'll go on another canoe journey at night to look for caimans, snakes, and nocturnal wildlife.
Prepare your breakfast in advance so you may paddle in the lagoon's pure smoothness and take in the fascinating sounds of the Amazonian fauna as they rise. Incredible fauna that might be difficult to spot with the untrained eye will be pointed out by your guide.
When you get back, take some time to relax and take in the lodge's surroundings. After lunch, you'll travel on another tour to the Cuyabeno Reserve where you can stroll along different routes or find tiny lagoons.
Profit from rising early and depart with the guide for a morning bird-watching expedition before breakfast. You will start traveling upstream to the Cuyabeno bridge after breakfast, where you will be met with transportation to Lago Agrio. In contrast, if you are riding a private bus, you will remain at the meeting location at the Cuyabeno Bridge. Lago Agrio is expected to be reached at 1:30 p.m.
