My wife and I stayed here for 5 days/4 nights and had a very nice time. As we'd previously spent time in a jungle we decided that we wanted a bit of extra luxury than we'd previously experienced (mattress on the floor, old mosy net) so we paid a little extra and went for the 3rd floor tower room. It was very much worth the extra cost as the room was very clean and comfortable and added to this we had a tree-top view of the surrounding area from which we saw amongst other things a family of toucans! The staff were very friendly, the food nice and plenty of it and the guides attached to the lodge are very good especially if Sulema, our guide,is anything to go by. You need to be prepared for the fact that you are in a jungle and as such need to be open to the idea of frogs and moths being visitors to your room but this was just part of the fun for us.
- 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. The Cuyabeno Lodge is one of two lodges located right on the lake and one of the few lodges that never gets flooded. We recently built a canopy watch tower and 3 new deluxe rooms. We have 24 hours electricity from solar energy, the only silent electrical motors in the park for excursions and hot showers. ... more less
