However, not all activities were included. ✅FOOD was excellent. The chef tried to vary the food every day and offered fish or meat. There was always a...

We did not want to leave the lodge (neither did anyone else on the tour for that matter) and we are definitely going to return for more. The lodge is lovely, quiet and unlike other lodges in the area does not have all their lights...

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
