We (mid-50s couple) had a great time at Jamu Lodge. The itinerary went just as described, and we were able to see (and hear) different monkeys, birds, dolphins, and lots of wildlife and fauna. We loved our guide (forgot her name, but she had a new baby). I applaud Jamu for using female guides. She kept us on schedule, was...

I can't stress how much I loved this place. You are totally immersed in the jungle experience. Totally worth the money (which is cheap compared to others places). We saw pink river dolphin everyday as well as lots of snakes, insects, monkeys and beautiful birds. The guides spoke fantastic English and were very well informed. You are given ponchos and...

Nice lodge in the middle of nowhere. Staff and our guide Ronald were very friendly and motivated. Close to the lodge is a beautiful laguna to jump in. Food was very good. Only motor boats and diesel generator are not eco friendly.

It's hard to choose a lodge in the Cuyabeno reserve and we can only share how our expectations were more than met. The accommodation is very clean and the beds good. The common areas are cozy and large enough for those who want to take some distance from the group. Food is excellent. We chose this lodge for the guides'...

Jamu Lodge was very clean, provided excellent service and lots of good food. We were very satisfied all around. Galo, our guide, is so knowledgeable and has a very keen eye for finding even the smallest critters like young young boas on a tree branch as we cruised in the canoe. We highly recommend!

My boyfriend and I booked Jamu Lodge via Gullivers Travel in Quito after being recommended them from our hostel. We searched around several other agencies and we felt this lodge was by far the best in quality. Our guide Galo was knowledgable and was always on the look out for more things to show us on our day trips. The...

Very nice lodge with incredible guide Ronald, who shared his knowledge of the Amazon wildlife with us with extraordinary energy. Amazing diners from a small kitchen. Nice rooms. Some rooms at the top are quite challenging: without walls and roof, but woth bats and an occasional boa...

We visited in the wet season and found this experience amazing! Our guide Galo was fantastic, friendly and helpful and great at spotting animals and giving us a lot of time to look. Swimming in the lagoon was an unexpected bonus! Food and facilities at the lodge were great. Comfortable beds. Warm showers. The rooms have mosquito nets and screens...

We had quite low expectations about lodges in the Amazon but were pleasantly surprised! We had great rooms with surprisingly few bugs, service was great as was the food. Even when our flight home was inexplicably cancelled the staff helped us to get back to Quito on time to the best of their ability while still trying to fit in...

To get here is really not easy, but it is so if you want to be in the jungle one must suffering. Can't imagine if there is something going on or someone get sick you need a complete 4 hours to get out by boat and bus to the big city. This Lodge is only accessible by a 2 hour...
