AMAZON

The Amazon Rainforest is another of Ecuador’s enviable wonders. Although Ecuador lays claim to just a fraction of the rainforest, which extends into Brazil, Peru, Venezuela and Bolivia, it provides a home for thousands of plant and animal species and is one of the most bio-diverse places on the planet.
Here life takes place between large fast-flowing rivers and peaceful lakes watched-over by trees. You will experience unique encounters with the Monkeys, Toucans, Dolphins, Golden Orioles, Snakes, Frogs, Caimans and millions of insects who share this land. The ethnic groups living in the Amazon will share with you their ways of life and their ancestral knowledge of medicinal plants.
In Sucumbíos, Napo and Orellana provinces, there are many accommodation options to suit all travelers. At Galextur, we can find the perfect lodgings for you!

The Siona Lodge is idyllically situated in one of the last unspoiled native jungles in the Amazon, the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve. Ecuador designated the 603.380 square kilometres (2,329.7 sq mi) a protected wildlife zone since July 26th, 1979. This positive step forward towards the preservation of part of the Amazon River Basin has allowed us to develop our lodge around the idea of low impact eco-tourism. Our hope is that, by exposing you to the untouched natural beauty surrounding the lodge, you will understand and share that these resources should be enjoyed and preserved for future generations to come.
