The Suchipakari is truely Ecological Reserve in Equator
We arrived here around 6 pm and it was pitch black. The staff takes your luggage with wheel barrels to the lodge. There are no lights and you need to use your flashlight on your phone. (We were on a tour and nothing was provided for us). It was scary to say the least. We finally reached the the lodge and I laughed. They gathered us in the "bar" area which is two floors. They gave us a drink and the keys to our room. We then had to have someone show us where our room was. The room was big and bare. Two twin beds, a fan on the wall, screen door that let to a balcony, a desk, and two shelving unit. The light kept flicking off and on and made it hard to shower. We had to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner in their open dining room as there was no place to go. Food was good. It would not be a place I would choose for myself.…
Great 3 day stay in a lovely lodge in the middle of the Amazonian forest. The big difference from others is that you can build your own itinerary among a varied choice of activities, according to your timing and preferences (thanks to Monica who was very patient and helpful). The lodge is welcoming, with a bar and swimming pool, good meals, and good organization. I recommend if for a true first experience of Amazonia :-)
We visited Suchipakari with a group of friends and had a fantastic time! The surroundings are beautiful, the food was authentic and the staff were so helpful. Edison took us on several tours of the rainforest and really helped us to learn about the flora and fauna as well as local traditions. It's not easy to get to so be sure you're prepared for some walking and uneven terrain.
We had an indcredible two nights stay at Suchi Pakari Lodge with our family. Carlos was our guide, and he was professional and so knowledgeable. We partook in several activities nearby the lodge during our stay : 1) Jungle Hike : We learned so much about the flora and fauna that I had to take notes! This included how to thatch a roof, how to make clothes and hats from Toquilla palm. The nighttime jungle walk was equally thrilling, as different creatures show themselves. We saw tree frogs, leaf frogs, stick bugs and even a baby boa constrictor! The hike itself was strenuous, but mostly because of the heat. We are fit and in our 30's, but some older members of our group found it quite difficult. 2) Tour of an oxbow lake in a large canoe: We encountered a bit of a monsoon, which really added to the experience! It's so warm that the rain was a welcome relief, and we didn't mind getting soaked at all. We saw tamarind monkeys, kingfishers, and a catfish-like fish that breathes air through it's mouth! 3) Visit to Kichwa village: It was a women's run cooperative style tourism stop where the women taught us how they make a traditional drink, chicha, and the younger girls performed a dance (pulling a few of us reluctantly up to look foolish among them ;)) A highlight was learning about the large monolithic sacred rock that sits in the centre of their village. 4) Visit to town square in Misuahilli : Our guides told us that we might see monkeys there - and we did! They were running amok in the power lines and roofs that lined the square eating corn cobs and crackers that folks were feeding them. It was so sweet! 5) Chocolate preparation : We learned all about the cacao plant. Then we made a warm chocolate ganache from scratch which we ate with an assortment of incredible jungle fruits!!! It was incredible. The food was very tasty, and they were able to easily accommodate my being vegetarian. The small bar is well stocked and the staff are very friendly. Even when the power went out we were able to order beers. There was always coffee, tea and filtered water available in the common area. The two resident yellow labs were also a lovely greeting party (we love dogs!) The room was very basic, with only a fan for cooling off, but otherwise comfortable. At one point we did lose power and also running water in our room... but what can you expect from a rustic jungle lodge?! We always felt safe and as comfortable as a Canadian can in +35 humid heat! It was a great experience.…
The location of the lodge is great and the perfect starting point for an Amazon trekking. We were very happy with our stay and would stay here again. Uncomplicated service to relax and enjoy. Tours start from the lodge.
