Jamu Lodge - All-inclusive Resort Lodge Amazon Basin - Ecuador

Jamu Lodge is by far the best “bang for your buck” if you’re planning on exploring the Amazon jungle. This economical choice is nestled deep in the rainforest, unlike many of the other inexpensive lodges in the Cuyabeno area, which aren’t even in the jungle. From the Cuyabeno bridge, where you pay entrance to the reserve, you will be transported into another world. Sailing for two hours down the Cuyabeno River in the lodge’s motorized canoe feels like a scene straight out of a movie. The experienced guide has “jungle eyes” that will spot out animals you would have never seen on your own, from butterflies to bird to monkeys.

The trip also includes a visit to the village shaman, who presents and explains his medicinal healing and traditional dances—an experience unlike any other. Also, you will visit a local village, go piranha fishing, swim in the beautiful Laguna Grande at sunset, search for caiman alligators, and explore the jungle at night. Beware of the tarantulas!

As for the lodge itself, it features nine separate cabañas with thatched roofs, bunk beds and cold showers. There are many hammocks to relax in between your excursions. The staff and guides at Jamu are friendly and helpful, whip up delicious and filling meals, and stay up with you in case there is anything needed.
