Overview

Located in the pristine Amazonian Rainforest of Ecuador within the Cuyabeno Reserve, Tapir Lodge is a distinct and one of a kind experience in the world. With unique and comfortable accommodations, Tapir caters to guests who are looking to venture into the rainforest and be witness to some of the most amazing spectacles on earth, as well as camping underneath the stars or just to rest and relax. For those who don’t mind spending a bit more to enjoy that little extra comfort.

Itinerary 5 days:

Day 1   Your Cuyabeno National Park rainforest adventure starts in Lago Agrio, where our driver will pick you up. A fascinating drive will take you to the northeastern part of the Sucumbios province, while we pass by beautiful rivers and small villages going deeper into the rainforest. When you arrive at El Puente (the bridge), we will have lunch before we continue our way to Tapir lodge crossing down the river by canoe. This part of the trip will give you a taste of the flora and fauna that Cuyabeno has to offer. We will ensure that you and your luggage stay dry during the river ride.  After welcoming you to the Tapir Lodge, you will have time to get settled in your room. Then you will join us for a wonderful dinner, an opportunity to get acquainted with your travel companions.  After dinner, your guide will give you an introduction to the Tapir lodge, the Cuyabeno National Park and the fascinating experiences planned for your rainforest adventure.

Day 2  In the morning, after a delicious breakfast at the Tapir Lodge, we will canoe upstream to explore the unique ecosystem of Laguna Grande. While navigating in the Igapo (flooded forest), you will see (Macrolobium),  ancient majestic mimosa trees,  which create the ideal habitat for epiphyte plants, such as bromeliads, orchids, ferns and cacti.  We will continue the adventure to Tierra Firme, where we will take a hike for the rest of the morning. You will get an introduction to the rain forest ecology and see an amazing variety of birds such as woodpeckers, tanagers, macaws and toucans. Here you will have the opportunity to see a couple of monkey species, as well.  After a delicious lunch and time to relax at the Tapir Lodge, we will navigate back to Laguna Grande to enjoy a wonderful sunset, surrounded by animals of the rainforest as bats, bugs and frogs; and if the weather permits you will have the opportunity to go swimming and enjoy the lagoon.  After a day of adventures, we will return to the lodge where dinner will be waiting. After dinner you can enjoy refreshments at our bar and join us for a quick night hike around the lodge to explore night wonders of the rain forest.

Day 3  After breakfast we will canoe up the Cuyabeno river until we reach the local community where we will experience daily community life and activities like harvesting and cooking. You will have the opportunity to buy handmade crafts, that are carefully produced by the locals. We finish our visit meeting the shaman at his house where he will share his knowledge about the rainforest and the processes he uses to heal his people. Here you get to experience an ancestral healing ceremony that has been passed on through the generations.  In the afternoon we will meet the local Siona family. They will show us and invite us to take part in the preparation of cassava bread. This local dish, which is prepared with the yuca (cassava) root, represents an important part of the local diet and the main source of carbs for the indigenous communities of the rainforest.
 Once you have tried cassava bread we will head back to Tapir Logde to spend another night in the middle of the jungle.

Day 4  Now it is your turn. Today you plan your itinerary! The Lodge offers a large array of activities like canoe paddling, trekking and swimming! The guide will help you to tailor your day.

Day 5  After breakfast it is time to return to Lago Agrio. You get to enjoy your final canoe trip back to El Puente. From there our driver will take you back to the airport of Lago Agrio.
