We stayed one night in the Huasquila Amazon Lodge during our recent trip to Tena and enjoyed it immensely. Our host Cecillia arranged to have breakfast available early on the day of our departure so we could make our raft trip with Rios Ecuador. Dinner was lovely, and it was fun to converse with the other guests after dinner over... More

First of all this lodge is definitely off the beaten path (about 20 minutes from the main road) so you are definitely in the jungle. the rooms are plenty big enough with screened windows and very tall thatched roofs. Plus Electricity & instant hot water, which believe me you will be glad of after a day in the jungle. The... More

I had a wonderful stay at this lodge. The staff was overwhelmingly helpful and worked to make a personal relationship even during such a short stay. The tours were phenomenal and those memories will be treasured for years to come. The food is also INSANELY good! The service is top notch (ex: after a long hike, one of the staff... More

As an introduction to Amazon life -- modern and traditional --, my 11-year-old grandson and I had a wonderful 5-day experience at Huasquila. Trent especially enjoyed interacting with Quichua children during the visit to a traditional home and demonstrations of traditional dances and cooking. And the extra visit to a village where the women have taken the reigns made this... More

A huge thank you to Bastienne and Pablo for making my daughter who is 9 and myself feel so welcome. It was a real family atmosphere which not all places have. It was inspiring to see your reforestation efforts come to maturity and to be able to speak to people who saw it when you had first started out. The... More

The lodge buildings display traditional Kichwa roof construction with modern amenities, creating a cozy safe environment for jungle travelers. The food is exceptional. Hosts and staff are very welcoming and happy to ensure you enjoy your stay. Sightings of Tucans are the normal at the lodge along with other wildlife which you don;t often have the opportunity to see.
