I really enjoyed my stay in cuyabeno lodge. Everything was taken care of. The food was great and the guide was very knowledgeable. I stayed in a dormitory room and that was fine. We had multiple excursions per day so we could see all the ecuadorian amazon had to offer.

Cuyabeno is a true ecolodge. Powered by solar electricty, running water from the lagoon, they find a way to run a family friendly lodge while still being environment friendly. The rooms are just the right size and the food is very good. I loved how you can see animals, like monkeys and birds, right outside your window. Swimming every afternoon...

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
