Tapir Lodge was built in 1999 in partnership with the family members of the Siona community. Our vision, while building the 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 Cuyabeno National Park. 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. For example, we offer you alternative accommodation styles. What does this mean? 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.
Tapir Lodge is a pioneer in the area of alternative energies. We have implemented an excellent way of creating our own energy, 24 hours, with no impact to the environment. Our own solar panels provide you with 110-115 V all day long. The amount is enought to recharge your camera,Lap Tops, Tablets, Electric razors, use the light or use other basic electronic equipment. But since we are in the middle of the jungle there are limitations on the power available. For example, a hair driver or other highly consuming electronic equipment has to be avoided.
