Lodge Description: The most accessible Amazon rainforest option from Quito, the Cotococha Lodge is ideal for those having too little time to visit areas deeper inside the rainforest (such as in the Cuyabeno or Yasuni reserves), those seeking a little more comfort in their rainforest experience, or travelers continuing on to southern Ecuador. In addition to being a quick get-away or a gentle/convenient introduction to the rainforest, the lodge itself is popular with travelers for its romantic style and superb food/service – not to mention having some of the best activities in the area. The Cotococha Lodge is located in the Upper Amazon Basin, close to the town of Tena, in a region characterized by small Kichwa communities and abundant vegetation of the Ecuador tropical rainforests. Indeed, this is one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world with a high number of endemic species of flora and fauna. This comfortable Cotococha Lodge itself overlooks the amazing Napo River, with its small, stony islets and sandy shores. The lodge has been awarded the Smart Voyager Certification, a kind of seal of approval to Ecuadorian hotel and tour boat operators that meet a set of strict conservation standards for protecting the environment, wildlife and the well-being of workers and local communities.
