Explore one of the world's most mystical and wondrous regions such as the Amazon
tropical Rainforest. The area takes part at the east foothills of the Andes, better known as
the Oriente in Ecuador. Cuyabeno is one of the wildlife Reserve, it protects approximately 590,112 hectares of tropical rainforest located in the northeastern part of Ecuador and crossed by the equator line.
Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve provides habitat for countless plants and animals giving
support to a great biodiversity, but it is also home for many indigenous communities such
as the Siona, Secoya, Kichwa and Cofan
Tourist transportation - shuttle: There is a tourist transport service that leaves 1 day before from Quito at the Blue House Hostel (Mariscal) at 23h00 and goes directly to the Cuyabeno Bridge. On the way back, the bus leaves from the Cuyabeno Bridge at 11h00 and arrives in Quito at 20h00 approx. We can help you with the purchase of the tkts bus.
The journey begins at “El Puente' 10h00, the main access to the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve and our last stop with the civilization. We continue in a motorized canoe downstream for about 2 hours until we reach the Nicky Amazon Lodge. With a little luck we’ll be able to observe the first
monkey and bird species along the way. The Cuyabeno river is extremely narrow in this region andallows you to experience wildlife up close. A welcome cocktail for your arrival at the lodge.
Later you will have time to rest and go on your first exploratory activity in the surrounding area. After dinner, we’ll explore the lodge's surroundings to look for nocturnal animals such as insects, spiders, snakes and frogs, a live which becomes active when the sun sets.
