Venture Deep into the Amazon Rainforest
The Amazon Dolphin Lodge is located in the Pañacocha protected forest reserve, (56,000 has) and is central to a biological corridor linking Yasuni National Park and the Cuyabeno Wildlife Refuge.
Pañacocha is classified as a Humid Tropical Forest. Wildlife is in abundance everywhere in the reserve.
A short list of possible observations includes; Howler, Squirrel, Capuchin and night monkeys along with the Black-mantled Tamarin and Pigmy Marmosets, and of course the Amazon Pink River Dolphin.
Thanks to our central location in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon, our professional local guides, our multilingual staff, and our motivation we offer a hands-on experience of the jungle.
We are able to achieve a wide range of possibilities to explore the plants, animals and cultural diversity of the area and provide the adventure that, without a doubt, you have been looking for.
