Clean, great food, excellent staff and knowledgeable guides and canoe operators. From the travel office personnel in Quito to the cooks and waiters all was better than promised. Our guide spoke spanish, english and a couple rainforest dialects. Seriously great time. Chuck your phones, load up the camera and just do what you are told. It is an eco-lodge so... More

We, a family of four people (two sons of 22 and 17) went on a four weeks travel around Ecuador and Galapagos, and the Jamu Lodge in Cuyabeno was the top experience. The lodge is reached after a two hour trip with a motor canoe. It is situated in the middle of the dense rain forest with access from the... More

Great place to visit. During our stay our guide, Sulema, managed to point out at least four species of monkeys, both types of sloths, 2 of the 3 types of caimans, a land tortoise, an anaconda, and I added many new species of birds I'd never seen before including White Collared Toucans, Hoatzins, two types of Aracaris and a Trogon.

My boyfriend and I were traveling in Ecuador for three weeks this summer and our stay at the Jamu Lodge was by far the highlight of the trip. Our room was clean and simple and magically in a tree house. The bathrooms were clean and new and the hot water was wonderful. Every meal was excellent and the company we... More

I have to admit that the accomodation was quite basic, yet this small minor was largely compensared by the excellent food and the superb jungle guides. If you are happy with a basic room and are in search of a superb jungle experience, go to Jamu lodge. For those who look forward to some more luxury, maybe Jamu Lodge is... More

Jamu Lodge was the perfect place to experience Amazonia from. Set amongst the jungle 2 hr down river deep into the rainforest. Experience nature at its best, Jamu is the place to be. Amazing staff, the food is great, the rooms are my kind of place. Thatched roof bungalows raised up on platforms sitting on the water. All essentials provided,... 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...
