Lago Agrio

Lago Agrio, also known as Nueva Loja, is a small town located in the Ecuadorian Amazon. It is also the gateway to the jungle and therefore the origin of many of our tours. 

Nearby is the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, one of the most biodiverse wildlife production areas on the planet. It is home to more than 550 species of birds, 350 species of fish, a great variety of reptiles such as anacondas, caimans, and river turtles, and 12,000 species of plants.

Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve

On your trip to Ecuador, you cannot miss a Cuyabeno tour. This Natural Reserve belongs to the National System of Protected Areas and therefore, you won't find many travelers visiting the place as access is limited.

However, at Howlanders we are lucky! We offer you the possibility to enjoy the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve for 4, 5, or 7 days. During the Cuyabeno tour, you will enter the jungle and live for a few days with the most alive and wild nature. Believe us when we tell you that sleeping in a lodge in the middle of the Amazon is an experience hard to forget.
