Welcome to Cuyabeno

ECUADOR AMAZON TOURS

Cuyabeno Reserve, the second largest in all of Ecuador, is located in the Amazon Region, in the northeastern part of Ecuador. It is traversed by the Cuyabeno, Aguarico and San Miguel rivers, with a complex system of lagoons to complement the main water sources. Cuyabeno is one of the most biodiverse nature reserves on Earth, with over 500 bird species, 350 fish species, 100 mammals and over 400,000 plant species.

There are 5 different indigenous ethnic groups living along its banks, the Siona, Secoya, Cofan, Quichua and Shuar. Each community has its own territory, beliefs and practices, but they all share a deep respect for nature and a simple way of life based largely on hunting and gathering.

Cuyabeno Reserve is under threat from the oil industry and deforestation, which is why today it is more than ever paramount to protect this valuable ecosystem.

What to know!

Amazon

The area we visit has a minimum percentage to be affected by malaria or yellow fever or other tropical diseases however before organizing your trip we recommend visiting your doctor to obtain the most appropriate information about tropical diseases and if it is important to take medication against them. 

 As a recommendation use the mosquito net during the night so that you do not have contact with mosquito bites or other insects during your rest. 

Weather

Our Amazon has a marked dry season from November to February and the rainiest season runs from May to July. The temperature in the Amazon rainforest most of the year ranges from 18 to 25 degrees Celsius during the day, there’s a change during the night when temperatures could go as high as 15 degrees Celsius.

Size of Groups

For this type of activities it is very important to work with small groups, with a maximum of 10 passengers to guarantee our visitors a unique experience in the jungle with all its splendor, and thus help reduce our impact with an overload of groups that directly or indirectly affect the unique ecosystems we visit.
