This is a lodge for people with a serious interest in the tropical amazon flora and fauna. It is located in virgin forest, remote and thus hard to reach, but oh so worth it! From Coca it takes 6 hours by car and motorized canoe. The canoe is uncovered, and rain is a possibility! The rooms are open air, rustic,... More

Thank you so much to Gabo and Rufo ,Wia, who were our excellent and fun guides for five days. We felt totally looked after at Shiripuno,even though it is very basic we had everything we needed and the food was excellent. Thank you Carlos. This is a very remote Lodge. We were able to experience long jungle hikes in different... More

We spent 5 days at the lodge and were sad to leave. Accommodations were rustic --no electricity, wash water from the river, but completely adequate. The trip to the lodge is long, 2 hours by car and then 4 hrs by boat, and you could be caught in a downpour as we were, so be prepared. The staff and Jose... More

It's been a while since we were there, but our stay is still fresh in my memory. We stayed here for one month, and did some volunteering at the lodge. Shiripuno deserves nothing less than an excellent rating. Hours away from the nearest village, no roads, nothing... just rainforest all around. For people that are looking for a true Amazon... More

If you are looking for a real jungle experince this is it. No fancy pancy, no elctricity, no WiFi. 4 h canoe in to the Houarani reserve. One local guide (houarani) and one naturalist guide will take you for amazing walks in the forest to see the strangest creaturs and plants. They will also teach you about the houarani culture....

Get ready for the most memorable jungle experience of your life. If you are jungle shy, this may not be for you. This is the real deal experience, nothing commercial or fake to be found. The journey to the lodge is as interesting as the lodge location itself. You must travel by boat to get deep into the jungle. The... More

Probably one of the very few places in the world where the wildlife is still untouched. There're no roads, no people, no mobile network. The rain forest is amazing, just point randomly and you can talk endlessly about what you point at. Soo many life forms, so many species. It's difficult to see mammals, they have wide territory and avoid... More

The Shiripuno Lodge is a great place to experience unspoilt rainforest, and the journey there is an experience in itself! Two hours in a chiva from Coca and four hours downriver by canoe, getting there is all part of the fun. Many kinds of toucan, macaws, hoatzins and lots of other birds to see. The trek up to the lookout... More

If you are looking for amenities don't go here, but for a wonderful real experience I couldn't think of a better place! We found Shiripuno Lodge by accident while researching the amazon part of our Ecuador trip and it seemed to be just what we were looking for. All the other lodges we had looked at had made us cringe... More

Unlike the fancier jungle lodges which give you a canned and sanitized experience of the Ecuadorian Jungle, Shiripuno Lodge provides something completely different. It is remote, a bit rustic but totally worth the trouble to get there and experience an authentic eco-lodge. Fernando, the creator of the lodge, is a local man with profound and extensive knowledge of the flora... More
