I spent 5 days there, the place is amazing! The cabins are lovely, eco friendly, and clean, the showers have hot water. Everything is done with solar energy. The food is good and healthy and they offer different fresh fruit juices every day. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the people at the office in Quito are just great.
The Lodge is right at the Laguna and the nature, the jungle around there is of the most beautiful in the world. The tours into the forest are well organized and it was great, I saw lots of different wildlife. The guide knew really well how to spot animals everywhere and find interesting places. You can swim in the Laguna and the sunsets are like a dream!
I travel all over the world and this is one of the best places I have ever been to, I can highly recommend it to anyone, don't miss this!

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1989, the Cuyabeno Lodge was the first lodge in the park; the owners believed that the rainforest traveler should be accommodated in conditions which would be both in harmony with the surrounding environment and attuned to the needs of the modern visitor. At Neotropic Turis, we, the owners of the Cuyabeno Lodge, are the pioneers in the tourist operation and we built the first Eco friendly lodge in the Cuyabeno National Park. We are a group of conservation biologists with 4 decades of experience in national parks management in developing countries.The Cuyabeno Lodge one of two lodges located right on the lake and one of the few lodges that never is flooded. We recently built a canopy watch tower and 3 new deluxe rooms. We have 24 hours electricity from solar energy and hot showers are available for all our visitors. We are NOT the same as the Cuyabeno River Lodge, the latter being located at 2 hours travel from the Cuyabeno Lakes. ... more less
