Itinerary

The main entrance to the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve and our last moment with the civilization. We continue by motorized canoe down the Cuyabeno river for about 2 and a half hours until we reach the Nicky Amazon Lodge. With a little luck we’ll be able to observe monkeys and bird species along the way. The Cuyabeno river is narrow in the upper part and this allows you to experience wildlife up close. A welcome cocktail waiting for your arrival at the lodge. Later, you will have time to rest and go on with your first activity, enjoying the surroundings. Before dinner, we will go on a night walk to watch for different species of insects, spiders, tree frogs and others. After dinner, your bilingual guide will tell you about the activities for the following days.

After we have a short time to rest and enjoy nature, we can swim, play soccer or just take a nap. In the afternoon, we’ll take a trip by canoe down the Cuyabeno River, taking us through the dense jungle landscape. We’ll observe the wildlife found on the riverbanks, including monkeys, macaws, toucans and sloths. We’ll have a good chance to see pink river dolphins in the impressive river landscape.

    What vaccinations do I need?

    What’s the weather like?

    Seasons in Ecuador have nothing to do with temperature – instead there is a dry season and a wet season. In Ecuador, the winter season is hot and wet, and the summer is dry and cold. Ecuador’s dry, summer season falls between May and December. January to April is Ecuador’s wet wintertime. There is not much of a transition between the seasons.

    Most of Ecuador has mild temperatures year-round. In the highlands of the Andes, the temperatures are usually cooler and depend of the altitude mainly, the higher the colder, The average temperature in Quito is in the mid-60s Fahrenheit (17 – 18 degrees Celsius).

    What Do I Do about drinking water?

    The tap water in Ecuador is not always friendly on the stomach for those who haven’t been in Latin America for a while. There is purified water in each of the accommodation which you can use to fill up each morning, so be sure to pack a reusable water bottle or two. There will also be water in the transportation.

    How much should I tip?
