COFAN AMAZON RAINFOREST LODGE, ECUADOR

The Cofán are among the oldest surviving indigenous cultures in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Since time immoral, we have lived in the forests where the Amazon Basin meets Andes and its volcanoes. The Cofán territory  includes rainforest, beautiful winding rivers, extended swamp forests, and the richest biodiversity found on earth. Part of the traditional territory of the Cofans is protected in the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, where we live in the village of Zabalo.

 

For many years, we provided ecotourism services to different tour operators, without having our own facilities. However, recently we decided that we should have our own lodge and our own programs to host you, our visitor, in our beautiful Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, so you can enjoy our paradisiacal jungle right from our own village. So we built our Amazon Rainforest Lodge Ecuador, el Cofan Lodge.

 

Nothing feels better, than taking a nice shower in a clean bathroom after an exiting excursion through the tropical jungle. Sounds irrelevant to you? Just wait and experience how good it feels after your shower, to stroll into in our tidy, well-cared-for restaurant after a day's outdoors in the tropical rainforest. You will love the accommodations at the Cofan Lodge.

 

Our prices include lodging, all meals, drinks, transportation and lodging, but wait... We even offer greater prices as we give discounts for combined bookings of Cuyabeno + Galapagos!

 

The Cofan Lodge is the center of operations for the following tours:

  1. 5 DAYS' CUYABENO LOOP

  2. 4 DAYS' STANDARD COFAN LODGE TOUR

  3. 7 DAYS' LAGARTO COCHA TOUR

  4. 4 DAYS CUYABENO LAKE TOUR

The homes in Zabalo Village are well-built so that we can live in decent and healthy conditions. Unlike most lodges at the Cuyabeno Lake, the Zabalo village has its own electricity plant, from which the Cofan Lodge draws its power. So you will be able to charge your electrical equipment.

Not too far from the villages is the highest canopy observation tower from where one can observe the canopy of the untouched jungle.

 

Food and drinks

The Cofan Lodge programs include all meals, and fruit juices served with the meals. Our restaurant serves a mix of international cuisine and occasionally  a sample meal of traditional Cofan dishes. Meals include coffee, tea and bottled water, while additional drinks and beverages can be bought.

 

For those with more time, longer stays in Cuyabeno are possible and highly recommended, as you can explore the park at a more relaxed pace and get to know the jungle and swamps much better. A very popular program is the Ecuador Amazon Expedition to Cuyabeno. Customized programs can be developed for special theme groups interested in birds as well as other Amazon Jungle Animals and/or Amazon Rainforest Plants. Check our Cofan Lodge rates.

 

As a final observation, to us, as co-custodians of the Cuyabeno jungle, it is essential that you have time the time of your life. We hope you fall in love with the tropical rainforest, which is our ancestral home. By visiting Cuyabeno, you help conserving the rain forest. Your visit generates income to the Cofan and Siona Indians and it strengthens the local economy. Without ecotourism, there would be far less incentive for the government of Ecuador to protect their natural areas. Our motto is "Nature, use it or lose it"
