After checking many reviews on tripadvisor we decided to book at Jamu and did not regret at all. All the lodges in Cuyabeno are next to each other, and you need about 2 hours on a canoe to arrive. Anyone considering the trip should keep in mind that there is no cellphone coverage or wifi, and there is no electricity... More

I really loved the Amazonas trip. The lodge is very well maintained and you have all you need, but when you go into the jungle you have to be aware that there are open windows and that the bathroom is more or less in middle of the jungle. Which is amazing. The Guide we had was so great, he saw... More

I am a biologist working in Ecuador. My family came to visit me in November, and I took them to Cuyabeno for a jungle experience. We stayed at Jamu Lodge. I have been on many wildlife tours and stayed at several reserves in my 4 years in Ecuador, and Jamu Lodge is absolutely at the top of my list for... More

So beautiful and magical place located deep in Cuyabeno jungle. Every single day we experienced unique and always surprising nature. Enormous density of animals compered to other rainforest locations. We were lead by exceptional and enthusiastic guide David. Thanks to him we were able to experience the spirit of miraculous Cuyabeno jangle.

Coming to the Cuyabeno jungle was the best decision of my trip to Ecuador last year. Every day we started a new adventure. My personal highlights: night walk to the jungle (hearing the animals), long hikes in rubber boots in which we learned about all the animals and plants, spotting monkeys from the canoe and sitting alone by the candle...

We really enjoyed our time at Jamu Lodge ad a whole. All the guides we met were really nice. Some were much better at spotting animals than others though. I don't kniw if it's possible to book to be with a specific guide but if we went again we would ask to. Pedro was excellent - he grew up in... More

I visited Jamu lodge with my parents and one of my Ecuadorian friends. It is a magical place. The sites are unbelievable and the lodge takes great care of you. We all loved the entire experience! Every day, we enjoyed all of the planned activities, utilized the provided accessories (boots, ponchos) and ate delicious family style meals. All of the... More

Jamu Lodge was great! Our guide was Miguel and he exudes the perfect guide persona: friendly, knowledgeable, relateable and an expert in all things rainforest. We had a mixed group and he spoke bits of everyone's languages, making us all feel welcomed and connected. We saw all the wildlife we had on our hopeful lists, and enjoyed the food and... More

On our way North through South America, my girlfriend and I skipped many opportunities to visit the Amazon. In Argentina we decided to wait for Bolivia. In Bolivia we thought it would be worth it to wait until Peru. In Peru we decided again to wait until Ecuador. In Ecuador, while volunteering on a farm for 4 months outside of... More
