Sustainability

Sustainability is very important, especally at our location. That is whay the lodge is build with bamboo, one of the most sustainable materials on earth.  24h energy is provided by our solar panel system and all waters are treated with ecofrindly biodigerstors and tricameral systems.

Small Size

Bamboo Lodge is only for 25 guests at the time, so we can provide better and more personal service. We decided to keep it small because the experience we want to provide is all about the amazon rain forest and enjoying nature, not about mass tourism.

Value for money

The best value for mony in Cuyabeno. We are not he cheapest among the lodges, but for the little more you pay you will get much more value: Better service, a crew paid fairly and over averrage, meals before and after the tour included, high quality guides and more.

Our favorite guest comments

 

We received many more great comments we loved… A huge thanks to all of our guests for being part of Bamboo Lodge for some days. This are the kind of experiences we want our guests to have and why we absolutely love what we are doing.

 

The five days and four nights we spent in the Amazon forest at the bamboo eco lodge were better then we could’ve wished for. We booked the jungle suite which is definately worth the little extra money. We were three stories high in the trees, seeing monkeys and tucans around us from our bed and our balcony. On the paddle-canoe trips we saw many many animals and there was always enough time to hang around the animals and watch them behave naturally. Our guide, Condor, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the rainforest and made sure we would do nothing to disturb the animals. Everything is very well organized, the food is amazing, the rooms are really clean and there are hardly any annoying musquitos or insects. You can swim in the lagoons during sunset, you can watch the most amazing sky full of stars.You will feel immersed in the nature, the sounds and animals are all around you. All in all, a big big recommendation.”

Hester H. from The Netherlands

The guide proved to be amazing. He could almost feel the presence of an animal nearby. After 10 minutes we met our first snake taking a sunbath on a branch. Everybody had missed it, but not our Willian. And for 3 hours our boat trip went on with Willian talking and spotting other snakes, birds, monkeys and even a sloth. 72 amazing hours in a beautiful surrounding with comfortable housing with a very kind and competent staff and Willian, who made our trip with his knowledge of the jungle to a unforgettable experience! Thank you Bamboo Lodge! It was lovely to be a part of you.”

Paul H. from The Netherlands

 

Our family of four spent 3 nights and 4 days at Bamboo Lodge. It was probably the best travel adventure experience of our lives. Miguel, our guide, was half university professor and half rugged adventurist. His immense knowledge, boundless energy, and passion for the Amazon rainforest made our trip go from great to a life changing experience. The food was also terrific, and Fabian, the boat driver, was next level. We saw caimans, sloths, lots of monkeys, anacondas, dolphins, many birds, boas, and lots of cool spiders and insects. Swimming in the lagoon each evening was so fun! The visit to the river community was fantastic too. I highly recommend Bamboo Lodge as a great small operation if you are wanting to visit the upper Amazon. “
