The owner of the lodge was my private guide: Thank you Kurt for everything! The owner really cares about the jungle, the animals and keeps the lodge nice and...

There are many lodges in the Cuyabeno Reserve and now I have been to twice of them and I have to recommend a trip to the Tapir lodge. The atmosphere is great and you feel like you were at home. This is due to the furniture but especially due to the staff. You'll get great food, nice talks and help...

Great service, very good food for lunch/ dinner and nice rooms in two towers. The hikes, canoeing and motor boat trips were fantastic. We saw lots of flowers, animals, insects, gigantic trees,... always again.

The lodge is set, like all other lodges we saw in the area, in a beautiful location. However, it is not well maintained and not clean. For two of the three nights there we were the only guests.

“Just if you prefer not to use the stairs, ask for first floor rooms, otherwise they are all pretty similar.”
