A nice place in the jungle Feb 04, 2017
Travelling to Ecuadorian Amazon is time consuming. When booking a room by Jamu Lodge transportation from Lago Agrio is included. A minibus driver will pick you up at bus station or at the airport. Cuyabeno is about 2h30 drive

From Cuyabeno still 2 a hour by boat ride to the lodge. Jamu Lodge is located in the middle of wildlife reserve of Cuyabeno, is not easy to get there, but the nicest thing, all transfer is included the room price

We book the room in a travel agency in Quito, not really cheap we pay 100$ per person, but everything is included- three times meal, drinks (water, tea and coffee), tours and local guide

After a two hour boat ride, arrived at the lodge. From the platform we walk to a wooden path under trees, a nice and quiet place. We were welcomed by all hotel staff and got a welcome drink

Our guide (speech) what is allowed and not allowed in this place, so everyone must respected

All rooms has no number, but they put names every room(insects name) our room called Manakin

We have our room near the restaurant, a bungalow style with two single beds. Room is nice and clean, is an open air window and ceiling but it had mosquito screen window

The bathroom is totally airy, we've been warned by staff that the bathroom door must always closed to avoid a mosquito in the bedroom. We have hot water is very important

On our 4 day stay our towels never change, although they clean rooms everyday. I guess we should through the towel on the ground instead of hang them on the line, that's why we didn't get fresh towels

The day we arrived we got a rain coat (poncho) we must kept during our stay, the weather in Amazon is unpredictable. Rubber boots were available in any size. Is mandatory to wear boots during walk to the forest, a long pant and long sleeve

No electrical socket inside the room, to charged our devices it has to be plugged in the common area in restaurant. Everyone charging his devices in the same place. Do not worry nobody steal anything

Food were okay, for breakfast we have choice of cereals, toast, jam, eggs and sausage coffee and tea. Menu for lunch and dinner change everyday

Upstairs of restaurant there are hammocks to relax

We have activities everyday, coming here is not for relaxing but we do a lot of walking to the woods or go on boating to the river, this all included in the price. We sometimes free in the afternoon

We have a nice stay with them, the whole area is real in oasis away from the big city we only hear sounds of nature at night. Is for us a great experience to be in the jungle for 4 days, a recommended place to stay in Cuyabeno
