Welcome to the Cuyabeno Kichwa Lodge
The Kichwa of Playas de Cuyabeno
invite you to experience their home,
Ecuador’s second largest nature reserve
Indigenous Owned & Operated
Founded in 2019, Kichwa Lodge and Kichwa Touring PVT. LTDA are community-led projects headquartered in Playas de Cuyabeno on the Aguarico River in the Sucumbio Province of Ecuador. The Amazon Kichwa have a long history that predates the formation of the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve.
Headwaters of the Amazon
Water in the Cuyabeno Wildife Reserve flows into the interconnected waterways that feed the mighty Amazon River. Seasonal lakes, swampy lagoons, and blackwater rivers all contribute glorious scenic value.
Rain or shine, the Cuyabeno is worth visiting. Each season has its highlights and it is hard to chose a perfect month to visit. Our Kichwa guides are ready to help you make the most of your stay no matter the weather.
The Cuyabeno Kichwa Lodge is ideally situated inside the reserve to experience colorful birds, tree-climbing monkeys, magical pink dolphins, huge anacondas, vibrant butterflies, night-loving insects, and more.
