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

I was there in the Cuyabenos reserve for my 5th time and this Lodge can be basic in some ways but once you get the excursions you feel that nothig else matters! ... the food is amazing and the excursion during the night is one of the most amazing experiences.

My son and I stayed at Jamu Lodge in February 2014. The lodge gives you an authentic feeling about being in the Amazon. The only electricity is furnished by solar panels. Therefore there is a limited amount available. Candles are used in the cabins although electricity is available in the bathrooms during the night. The walks and canoe rides are... More

We had mixed experiences at Jamu and much of what we found is already articulated in the reviews below. Jamu has lots going for it, but could use a dose of professional hospitality intervention - ie, staff training - to make it a much better facility and experience. Right now, you get what you pay for, so my expectations were... More
