Ecuador - a list of Amazon lodges

The Amazon rainforest is truly one of the wonders of the world. You can explore the incredible biodiversity of the "lungs of the planet" while you stay at a comfortable lodge in Ecuador's Amazon region. Each lodge runs a regular program of activities and excursions that take you out with a knowledgeable guide to explore and learn about the flora and fauna - hiking through the rainforest to pools and waterfalls, and taking launches along Amazon tributaries, as well as visiting local indigenous communities that have adapted to life in the Amazon for thousands of years.

Below is a list of all the Amazon Lodges in Ecuador with a brief description.
