库亚贝诺野生动物自然保护区的入境站

这里就是您旅途真正的开始:乘着灵巧的独木舟游蜿蜒的库亚贝诺河,到库亚贝诺旅馆。

 

经过公园守卫人员一番迎新的介绍后,您就将展开您真正的国家公园之旅,当您沿着景秀蜿蜒的库亚贝诺河而划向库亚贝诺旅馆。跟着这条亚马逊河支流,享受一趟精彩的旅程。您将被带到自然保护区里最大的湖,Laguna Grande(也就是大湖的意思)。库亚贝诺旅馆分布在库亚贝诺河系的七大湖,是唯一一个获政府执照批准的住宿。

 优游亚马逊第二、三天

由于鸟类在破晓前最活跃,您会在早餐前,在我们经验丰富的向导带领下,以观鸟开始您的一天。

饭后,当夜幕低垂时,您将再度乘坐独木舟游湖,不过记得要静悄悄地,因为这次是去寻找凯门鳄,一个鳄鱼和短吻鳄的近亲。您可以用照明灯寻获凯门鳄的行踪。一对对橙色亮光就是照明灯从凯门鳄的双眼所反射回来的。偶尔,若幸运的话您还会在您手电筒灯光扫射的照亮下捕捉到虎猫或美洲豹的炯炯双眼。第二晚,我们将以照明灯带领您徒步行走森林。届时我们也许会发现到最奇特的小动物,如我们曾寻获过,同蜘蛛一般的小动物。树蛙到处都是,不过要寻觅到一或两只却不是一件易事。正当您以为牠们终于被捕捉在您的摄像头里,牠们轻轻地一跳就会再也不见踪影了

 

蓝鹦鹉及黄鹦鹉嘎嘎地飞过大湖(Laguna Cuyabeno),而麝雉在大辨苏木沼泽觅食时轻轻地发出牠们沙哑的叫声。您也可能会听到神秘的吼猴叫声或是看到一群松鼠猴在树顶上来回蹦跳。其实,在自然保护区内,已经有10个品种的猴子被记录下来。回返旅馆吃早餐。早餐后,与您的西奥纳族和自然学向导一起由陆地走进亚马逊森林,探索那边的植物及野生动物。您的西奥纳向导将教导您有关森林的药性植物和一些当地的传统。

午餐和午觉后,您将乘独木舟穿越泛滥的沼泽(又称 igapo,是巴西和葡萄牙语,就是亚马逊沼泽的意思)在覆满附生植物的大辨苏树木之间寻找鸟类与兰花;最后,夕阳西下,在湖里戏水,为美丽的一天画上一个句点。

回返旅馆吃早餐。早餐过后,沿着库亚贝诺河更深入地探索自然保护区。下舟步行一下再享用户外的野餐。午后,再乘独木舟返回旅馆。也许还可在湖中央游个夕阳泳。

 

之后就是晚餐,紧接着的是夜间远足:拿起您的照明灯将热带雨林的夜间小动物全看个究竟,例如半透明树蛙、犰狳、蜜熊和果蝠、夜间昆虫和青蛙等等。

优游亚马逊第四天

第四天,您将与我们很多的宾客感同身受:"时间怎么会过得这么快"?也许您会成为我们的常客,定时地回来参与我们一两周的特别节目。不管怎样,一到早晨您就得准时离开到拉戈阿格里奥赶搭下一趟班机或巴士。您将乘独木舟游库亚贝诺河直到桥头,再搭等待您的运输把您接送到机场或是去乘搭巴士回中央谷。沿途,通往中央谷蜿蜒的路上,有安第斯山脉伴两侧,还可以略微看到卡扬贝国家公园。

 

较长期的住宿

至于那些有较多时间的宾客,我们大大地推荐您延长住宿。您可以以更轻松的步伐探索公园,也可以更深入地认识森林和沼泽。

  • Left: Lagarto Coche Expedition with the Cuyabeno Lake area as an additional option.

 

Are these really the 8 Best Tropical Tours for seeing wildlife in Ecuador?

YES! This is why...

When one walks in the forest, the animals above you in the the crowns are difficult to observe. Looking up you hardly see anything. The contrast between the sky and the leaves is so overwhelming, that they appear almost black.  On the other hand, along narrow rivers, the light can break through the canopy, illuminating lower braches and wildlife. So, from the water you see the birds, flowers and mammals much better, as they frolick through the shrubs and lower trees along the shores.

 

So what makes Cuyabeno so special:

  • It's the only Amazon park in all Amazon-Andean countries with wide flat plains. Slow-flowing narrow creeks, rivers and many lakes can only develop in flat lowlands; not in hilly terrain. This makes Cuyabeno so unique!

  • In the dryer sections, one gets to see the terrestrial animals and birds. With so much water, one also gets to see water animals like: Dolphins, Manatees, Capybaras, Cayman, Ducks, Cormorants, Herons, etc.

  • Spotting wildlife from a canoe is much easier than when walking on a trail. You have your birding and wildlife books, your binoculars and your camera all close at hand.

But there is more...

  • Getting from Lagoagrio to Cuyabeno is (mostly) over an asphalt road. Distances over water are much shorter than to other reserves, like Yasuní National Park;

  •  Our programs are organized by or in collaboration with small Indian tribes, the Cofans and Sionas;

  • All programs are so child friendly, I took my grandchildren (3,5 & 6) there. Wao, did they love it!

On a rare occasion, with lots of luck you may catch the green eyes of a wandering Ocelot Cat in the beam of your flash light.

 

Cuyabeno loop, Day Two

Early in the morning, we take on one of the few Ecuadorian black water rivers, where the clear water provides an ideal conditions for Giant Otters. Black water gets it color from decaying leaves fallen in the forested lowlands and swamps, while there are little or no sediments. There is also a vivid population of Scarlet Macaws as well as a great variety of tropical birds and monkeys.

On day five, you will experience the feel of so many of our visitors: "It all went by too quickly". Maybe you will become one of our frequent visitors that keep coming back for a special program. Anyway, you will have to leave in the morning to get back on time to catch the plane or  bus in Lagoagrio. You will ride the canoe up the Cuyabeno River to the main entrance of the park, the "Cuyabeno Bridge", where your transport will be waiting for you to bring you to the airport or to the bus station to take you on your trip back to Quito. No wonder that this is one of the Best Tropical Adventures and Tours for seeing wildlife in Ecuador.

CUYABENO, GETTING THERE AND BACK

There are 3 options to travel to the Amazon Lowlands:

  • Take the night bus from Quito to Lagoagrio (usually leaves at 11 at night) from the "Terminal Norte" in Quito and arrive in Lagoagrio at dawn, which takes about 7 hours. It costs about $ 25 for the round trip and you have to leave from your hotel in Quito to the terminal  an hour before departure (by taxi). Alternatively, you can take a day bus, but then you will have to spend the night in Lagoagrio. We will pick you up in Lagoagrio in combination with arriving passengers by plane, departing generally at 10:30 (depending on the arrival of the plane), to Nuevo Unión (2 hours), where we embark in our canoe at about 12:30. Between your departure from your hotel at night at 10 at night until boarding the our motorized canoe, will be more or less 15 hours. The same applies for the Lake Cuyabeno accommodations which pass through the main park entrance on the Cuyabeno River.

  • Fly with Tame Quito - Lagoagrio. You can book your ticket at https://www.tame.com.ec, which costs about $ 150 round trip, but additionally you have to consider the cost of a taxi that costs 2X25; Then it actually costs $ 200. Your flight usually leaves at 9 in the morning, and takes 30 minutes to arrive. As many times the flight is delayed, count on arriving around 10, and after getting your luggage, it will be 10:30. We'll pick you up at the airport. From there it takes two hours to arrive in Nuevo Union, where we leave in our canoe at 12:30. Thus flying takes a total of 5 - 6 hours from your hotel until you can embark on the Rio Aguarico. The same applies for the Lake Cuyabeno accommodations which pass through the main park entrance on the Cuyabeno River.

  • Take our Private Trans-Andean Transportation to the Aguarico or Cuyabeno River, of which you can read the details below. We will pick you up at your hotel early in the morning and take to the Aguarico River in about 8 - 9 hours depending how much time we spend on the way at the overlooks into the Cayambe _ Coca Ecological. The same applies for the Lake Cuyabeno accommodations which pass through the main park entrance on the Cuyabeno River.

PRIVATE TRANSPORTATION QUITO - AGUARICO

 

Lake Papallacta.San Rafael Waterfalls.

Near the mountain pass you pass by beautiful paramos and some of the highest rainforests in the world along Lake Papallacta.

The San Rafael waterfall surrounded by virgin cloud forest is the most beautiful waterfall of the country.

 

Jamanco Spa at Lake Papallacta LakeThe Reventador Volcano pouring out lava.

Bordering Lake Papallacta is the Jamanco Spa with great mineral water without prior filtration as done in the Papallacta resorts. As a result, the mineral quality is supposed to be better, while resort prices are a fraction of the spas in Papallacta.

The Reventador is Ecuador's most active volcano and frequently runs of down-pouring can be seen glowing in the night.

  • It is possible to arrange for spending the night at either a Papallacta (costly) or Jamanco (friendly and much more economical) Spa, but then another day is needed.

  • Many passengers who take the private transportation, chose to fly back or visa versa.

Lagoagrio airport.Cayambe Volcano right on the Equator.

Arrival at the airport of oil-boom town Lagoagrio.

On a clear day you can see the Cayambe exactly on the equator, as you fly around it. It is the only major volcano as well as the only glacier in the world precisely on the equator. On the way in, chose a window on the right and on the way back on the left of the plane.

Our programs are rather customized and we try to accommodate the travel needs of our customers. To avoid misunderstandings, we don't offer a prepaid travel option. Just send an email to or contact us through our contact data below. 

 

From Abroad:

Sending money from abroad is rather costly and we try to minimize money going to bank transfers. Once your schedule has been worked out, we kindly request you to make a reservation guarantee transfer of only $100 by Western Union or Moneygram. The balance you pay in CASH in Quito upon arrival (we don't take credit cards!) This way you don't lose a lot of money sending money. The $100 is NOT recoverable upon cancelation.
