Amazon Region

It is a charming “hostería” located in the Amazon Jungle by the Arajuno River. You get there only by boat, although it’s 6 hours away from Quito. The bungalows have excellent beds, private bathroom, hot water and a little terrace from where you enjoy the silence of nature.

The atmosphere is cozy and romantic, since there is no electricity and therefore candles light up rooms, the dining room and the bar. All of these features make your stay in Liana Lodge a totally new experience.

The protected forest, called “Selva Viva” and a shelter for animals called AmaZOOnico, are part of the Liana Lodge project. During a visit there, you will learn a lot about nature, the co-existence of humans and the Amazon Jungle and the challenge of keeping a sustainable forest.

There are daily tours and they are mostly organized according to the guests’ interest. You mainly have:

Balsa-ride: on a canoe we drive on the Arajuno River up to the Cosano River where there is a natural beach. Here we will build a traditional Kichwa raft, which we will use to go back to Liana Lodge. Buoys: After going up the river by canoe, you can float down the river on buoys until you reach Liana Lodge.

This is great fun. This activity is generally combined with another tour to get back to the lodge.

Ceibo: the guide shows you the astonishing insects and the flora of the jungle. On the way you will see the Ceibo, one of the biggest trees in the Amazon Region, with its impressive buttress roots.

Mirador: you will discover what jungle means by walking to the Mirador, where you have a wonderful view over the Anaconda Island and the village of Ahuano. On the way, the guide will give you some information about the fauna and flora of the jungle and how local people use certain insects and plants in natural medicine.

AmaZOOnico: visit the rescue centre for animals which is situated at a 30 minutes’ walk from Liana Lodge. The team of volunteers will show you some of the jungle animals: monkeys, parrots, ocelots, caimans, etc. Most of them are free; however some of them are kept in cages for safety as they are not ready for interaction, yet. After the tour, you will have the opportunity to go to the bar or support the local community where you see the Kichwa's artisanal work.
