4-5 Day Jungle-Tour to the Cuyabeno National Park with Gulliver Expeditions

Cuyabeno is located in the North Eastern part of Ecuador in the Napo and Sucumbos Provinces of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Near the Columbian and Peruvian borders, it contains a spectacular nature reserve. The reserve is accessible from Lago Agrio, and it has become a popular tourist destination because of its lakes, swamps and amazing diversity of animals. The reserve itself covers over 650,000 hectares (1606184 acres) of primary rainforest and boasts an incredible variety of wildlife including river dolphins, tapirs, capybaras, caiman, anacondas, ocelots, and monkeys, as well as the infamous piranha fish. The bird life here is also spectacular. Many different species of birds have made the reserve their home, including the amazing Harpy Eagle, with its eight-foot wingspan, is one of the most biodiverse places in the world. Tours can be arranged for varying numbers of days in lodges next to a lagoon where pink river dolphins live. Along the way, travelers have the opportunity to canoe along the Cuybeno River, watch the wildlife, and participate in jungle activities such as piranha fishing and eating lemon ants! Trips from three days and upwards can be arranged through a Gulliver operative. For more information visit http://www.gulliver.com.ec/index.php/jungle-tours.html or contact us: [email protected]
