I can't say enough how amazing this place is. Michelle and Gary are the kindest most helpful hosts, helping us with restaurant suggestions, special requests/needs that we may have, and helping me figure out travel plans to other places in Ecuador! The rooms are clean, spacious and lovely. The kitchen is great, open access with a fridge. And Laundry!

Casa Blanca feels like a home away from home. Michelle and Gary are incredibly welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. The hotel is always very clean and everything just works like it should. This is the perfect place to recharge after a few weeks of bumping through hostels or use as a home base to explore the beauty of the Amazon forests....

We loved our 2-night stay at CasaBlanca, close to town in Tena. The owners, Michelle and Gary, helped us with every aspect of our stay- including arranging rides, selecting restaurants and an amazing Jungle Tour with Gary. The filtered water and free wifi and use of washer/dryer were much appreciated too. We highly recommend staying with Michelle, Gary and their...

We stayed three nights with Gari and Michelle, two at the guest house and one in the jungle. The house was squeaky clean and surprisingly quiet at night. We kayaked and did tours with Gari, shared stories with other guests, and most importantly did a lot of laughing. We highly recommend staying with them in any capacity - traveling alone,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are people people, a US emergency room nurse and an Ecuadorian guide, teamed up and turned HOSTEL OWNERS and TOUR PROVIDERS in the Amazon. What does this mean for you? Comfort in the jungle and quality tours! The hotel reflects what we wanted for ourselves and experienced in other places around the world. The rooms are spacious and clean. The showers are hot and the water is good. There are screens on the windows and fans in every room. There’s a big common kitchen to cook your own food in or just be able to hang out in. That in combination with a helping hand to get you up to speed on the area will smooth your transition to maximize the time you have here in this little corner of the world. Come see us!, Gary Garces and Michelle Klein Private rooms or individual beds in a communal, large, hostel room (with full-size lockers), can be rented by the day, week, or month. ... more   less
