What an amazing place this is! Christof and Dagmar are delightful hosts and the meals they provided were delicious and a highlight of the day. The lodges were comfortable and really gave us a feel of the rainforest. What a treat to be able to sit on the deck and listen to the sounds around us, which varied dramatically from...

My boyfriend and I recently visited Huella Verde and loved it! The host, Christof, was warm & welcoming and is a FANTASTIC cook! Some of the best food we tried while in Ecuador! Definitely try the Maito (fish wrapped in banana leaves), I think it was named 'Amazonian dish' on the menu! We stayed 2 nights, although an extra night...

Very nice Rainforest Lodge with all the comforts of home without those crazy Rainforest Lodge prices. Owner is great very good cook too. Went on Rainforest hike didn't see animals but what an amazing amount of plant life, guide is great a native to the region. Yes, it did rain one day but very good place. Really enjoyed it

My husband and I live in Guayaquil and we wanted to go to the rain forest during a recent 4-day weekend. We found Huella Verde which is only 2 hours from Banos by taxi ($50) - you can also take the far cheaper bus but the trip will be about an hour longer. Huella Verde is located off the beaten...

We just came back from our short jungle trip to Huella Verde. Thank you Christof and Dagmar for this amazing experience! You are awesome!!! Huella Verde is located about 1 hour drive from Puyo, in a small community of Canelos. It is driving distance from Quito or even Guayaquil. You can combine it with stay in Riobamba or Banos. The...

We stayed at Huella Verde for two nights. It is a pricey accomodation, but we don't regret a dollar we spent. Dagmar y Christof take very good care of their home and the cabanas for the tourists. The lodge REALLY is surrounded by jungle and you have to walk ~15 minutes to get there from the bridge. It's not accessible...

This is such an incredible surprise to find such a well-run, clean and beautiful lodge in the middle of the jungle. Christof and his wife Dagmar have created very nice accommodations in a difficult environment. There are 3 main buildings on the property, one main lodge which houses the dining room, and 2 separate sleeping lodges. I visited there with...

Went here with my sister and two year old daughter. We had a great time. We recommend the jungle walk which was perfect. We took my daughter in a child carrier back-pack which was fine, but it's a little slippy when it rains. A special mention to Christof the owner who was brilliant. My sister over-tipped by mistake and he...

What an excellent place to chill and relax surrounded by the sounds of nature. Kristoff has done a wonderful job of creating a peaceful retreat on the banks of RIO BOBONAZA.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A True Adventure in the Tropical Jungle --We invited you to enjoy an “uncommon “adventure in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Huella Verde (Green Footprint) is a hidden place where you can have an authentic jungle experience and explore the ecosystem at your own pace. Our cabañas have been carefully constructed out of local material along with our tropical gardens which are designed to blend in with the surroundings and the natural architecture of the jungle. Here you find equilibrium with nature which provides, not just a tourist attraction, but the preservation of the culture, flora and fauna. What may surprise you is that our cabañas have the comfort and coziness of many major hotels. But, unlike other locations, at Huella Verde your senses are awakened but what surrounds you in the Amazon. We can accommodate 8 people, with private baths. Our size allows us to offer exclusive and personalized service. Panoramic views of the surrounding forest, clean air, local and international meals prepared by a skilled chef with ingredients from local farms – this is the Huella Verde difference. A Place to disconnect from reality!We are located nearby de indigenous village of Canelos located 1 hour form the city of Puyo. You can get the public bus from the city of Puyo to Canelos - 1hour aprox. ... more   less

“While one cabin is labeled "superior" and costs more, we actually found the other cabin preferable because of having two beds in the room and being closer to the lodge.”
