Ecuador – Cuyabeno Friends

I cannot recommend enough the Nicky Lodge, reserved through Dracaena Tours. Our guides, Diego and Andrés, were extremely knowledgeable about the plants, insects, birds, and other animals – and also about traditional native practices and customs. They were instrumental in helping us to better appreciate the complexity of the jungle ecosystem. The crew at the Nicky Lodge was a true team that pulled everything together – the food was outstanding! – and the boat operator was a master on the river, navigating through narrow channels even at night. Plus, we had such a fun group with us – I hope we will remain in contact for years to come!
