My group of girlfriends and I were disappointed when the lodge we originally wanted had no reservations, but it turned out to the best thing that happened to us! We fell in love with Tapir Lodge. The accommodations are very comfortable, the chef makes incredibly delicious meals, and the staff works tirelessly to make your Amazon experience memorable and exciting....

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. We had two full days there and the scheduled program for half a day was cancelled because the boat had not shown...

Tapir Lodge, amazing place, amazing crew, so glad I chose this place. As you might know by now, there are a few lodges all nestled on the same river, but far away from one another so that you feel like your lodge is the only one in the jungle. I had heard from others that some of the lodges would...

Everything about the logistics and setting of this property is wonderful. It is truly a beautiful area but our experience was almost ruined by our luck of the draw.

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

“Ask for the top story rooms if you want to live in the treetops for a few days. Less fit visitors might prefer the lower story rooms to avoid climbing the stairs.”
