A comfort class jungle lodge
We have the jungle adventure you are looking for!
We have 35 years of experience guiding in the Amazon Basin
And we are located in the finest rain-forest wildlife reserve on Earth!
Tapir Lodge was built in 1999 inside the Amazon area with the most biodiversity on Earth, the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve. Tapir Lodge is operated in partnership with the family members of the Siona native community.
Our vision, while building Tapir Lodge, was not only to create a place that surpasses customers’ expectations, but also to demonstrate our ecologic credentials by constructing the most Eco-friendly lodge in the Reserve. Our philosophy is to respect the ecosystem, the nature, the animals and maintain its natural course. We are passionate about the environment and therefore we seek to cause the minimal disturbance in the area.
Our mission is to provide you with excellent customer service and to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We offer you an alternative accommodation style. Instead of the traditional huts that you may find in most of the lodges, we built two towers of 15 meters high each one, so that you may experience and feel the nature and the birds closer. This also means that we lodge more people using less jungle space… with less ecological impact.
We’re always working on the quality of our services and products, that´s why the Ministry of Tourism of Ecuador rewarded us with the “Ecuador Quality” reward for two years subsequently!
