Very nice lodge with incredible guide Ronald, who shared his knowledge of the Amazon wildlife with us with extraordinary energy. Amazing diners from a small kitchen. Nice rooms. Some rooms at the top are quite challenging: without walls and roof, but woth bats and an occasional boa...

We visited in the wet season and found this experience amazing! Our guide Galo was fantastic, friendly and helpful and great at spotting animals and giving us a lot of time to look. Swimming in the lagoon was an unexpected bonus! Food and facilities at the lodge were great. Comfortable beds. Warm showers. The rooms have mosquito nets and screens... More

We had quite low expectations about lodges in the Amazon but were pleasantly surprised! We had great rooms with surprisingly few bugs, service was great as was the food. Even when our flight home was inexplicably cancelled the staff helped us to get back to Quito on time to the best of their ability while still trying to fit in... More

To get here is really not easy, but it is so if you want to be in the jungle one must suffering. Can't imagine if there is something going on or someone get sick you need a complete 4 hours to get out by boat and bus to the big city. This Lodge is only accessible by a 2 hour... More

We were a family of 7 (from 15 years old to 80 years old!) sharing 3 bedrooms on a 4 day trip with the Jamu Lodge. It takes a long time to get there : first from Quito either by bus or by plane, then a 2 hours bus journey, lunch pique-nique and then the fun starts straight away with... More

Jam Lodge was a highlight of our Ecuador explorations. We saw great wildlife (many species of birds, monkeys, snakes, and insects), enjoyed sunset swims in Lago Cuyabeno, and traveled the flooded jungle in style with motorized and non-motorized canoes. The guides were good, particularly Ronald. Rooms are very comfortable. Food nothing special, but plentiful and good. Staff was flexible when... More

My husband and I in our late twenties visited the lodge may2016, and had a great time. Tours are well organized, guides are very knowledgeable. Our room was very nice and had our own bathroom, it was much more than I expected for being in the middle of the jungle.

I stayed in Jamu lodge for 4 days/3 nights. The guide's knowledge was very good and we were able to see an enormous amount of snakes, monkeys, birds and other animals including dolphins, slots and caymans. The food was very good and although basic, the cabanas were clean and neat. A very good experience for nature-lovers!

I visited Jamu Lodge with my wife and we were accompanied by our daughter and her husband. We were very pleased with most of the arrangements for our travel between lodge and airport, though the arrangements for baggage transfer between bus and canoe could have been better. Some of our bags could have been mislaid had we not been vigilant... More

My trip to Cuyabeno did not disappoint! I was recommended Jamu Lodge, and am so glad I stayed. Ronald is such an amazing guide, friendly, knowledgeable, and has super human eyes when it comes to spotting the animals. The lodge is also excellent, clean, and food is tasty and lots of it. Amazing excursion, would recommend to anyone the lodge... More
