Cuyabeno Ecuador Amazon Tours


Welcome to the jungle! As part of our primary rainforest programs Guanguiltagua offers Expeditions to the Cuyabeno Reserve, the Top place in Ecuadorian jungle for wild life watching.

We have programs from 2 to 8 days where we offer you the best of the best in terms of animal and jungle sightseeing. These programs take place in our rainforest lodge where travellers have all meals included, all the tea and coffee that you can drink and accommodations in rooms with private bathroom and hot water. We also provide jungle treks with canoe and tents from 3 to 8 days.

Our programs include observation of stinky turkey, saki monkey, howler monkey, squirrel monkey, anaconda snake, boa constrictor, parakeets, scarlet macaws, blue and yellow macaws, piranha fishing, fresh water dolphins and maybe river manatee.

This is just a little review of what can you see. Also the program includes a visit to a Kichwa indigenous family to learn about their culture.

Depending on traveller's needs and budget, we can transfer you to the lodge by public bus, private SUV or plane.
