Tour Details

The lodging at Itamandi  Lodge was carefully designed to assure comfort to the visitor, yet protect the atmosphere and ambience. The outline of the configuration was intended with the intermingling trees of the rain forest in mind, and its outreaching, multiple branches. In addition, the lodge feels authentic, airy and comfortable. Itamandi Lodge consists of 19 private rooms of varying sleeping configurations and several public gathering spots, including the spacious dining room, an open-air combined bar, a majestic pool, and an observation tower.

The two-story cabanas respect the nature environment but assures an authentic and comfortable lodging experience. The 8 double rooms offer spacious sleeping and sitting area, private bathroom, hot showers, and balcony.

The cozy accommodations on the main complex offer the same amenities as the cabanas, they can be used as single, double and (upon request) triple accommodations, always with private bathroom and hot shower.
For your peace of mind all the rooms are also equipped with a security box.

Itinerary 3 Days

Day 1Arriving at Itamandi Ecolodge

3:00pm We start our trip to Itamandi EcoLodge at the Arajuno Bridge, where we will take a motorized canoe going upstream for 20 minutes to begin our great experience in the tropical forest. On this ride you can appreciate the magic and beauty of the Amazon rainforest driving along a zigzag river that flows in the jungle like a giant snake, considered the vein system of the Pacha Mama (mother Earth).
Once we arrive at the dock area of Itamandi EcoLodge, the resident manager will greet you with a delicious welcome drink. From there we will continue to relax in the bar area with a snack and a short briefing will be held with general information about the lodge and activities, provided by one of our naturalist guides.

6:30pm Night walk (optional) A flashlight and camera are the most important tools on this night excursion, which allows guests to hear the nocturnal sounds and to look for fishing bats, owls, some insects, tarantulas, toads and frogs, and possibly snakes. If the sky is clear, we might have the chance to do some stargazing.

7:30pm Dinner

Day 2Cultural Encounters

5:45am – 6:00am (if the climate it permits) Parrot Clay Lick
Early in the morning we take a canoe ride for 15 minutes upstream to visit a parrot clay lick (Saladero) to appreciate a unique site where parrots and parakeets gather in order to obtain the minerals that will help them to digest the fruits or seeds they have consumed. Hundreds of parrots and parakeets will approach the treetops and later will come down to the clay bank to eat this soil rich in minerals. It is essential to have binoculars to enjoy it.

7:00am – 8:30am Breakfast

9:00am or 9:30am Long hike
After a scrumptious breakfast we head out for a hike through the primary and secondary Rainforest. Our expert naturalists teach you about the ecology and flora and fauna of the Rainforest along the trail. You will observe a great variety of insects, a diversity of birds flying around us and with some luck reptiles or monkeys. This activity takes about 2 ½ -3hours.

Back at Itamandi EcoLodge for Lunch and a siesta.

3:00pm Visit to Native Community
In the afternoon it is time to enjoy a cultural activity. An Amazonian Kichwa community will receive us and we learn about their way of life and the interaction they have with the forest. This encounter is going to show you that part of the Amazonia that you do not find on the maps: the Amazon people.
Part of our visit to the community involves the demonstration of the famous “Chicha”, a fermented yucca drink that has become part of their festivals and daily use. We will take part in the preparation of this beverage and also try some of the local cuisine.
We finish the visit with a traditional dance performed by the kids in this community and you also have some time to buy some handicrafts, made by the indigenous. This little business is to support the indigenous people in their daily life.

Day 3Amazon Wildlife

9:00am Visit to “Isla Anaconda” and “Amazoonico”
After our delicious breakfast buffet, we take a 40 min canoe ride downriver to visit the “Isla Anaconda”. We can observe the prehistoric bird “Hoatzin”, woolly monkeys, squirrel monkeys, just to mention a few. We also visit a family in one of the indigenous communities to learn about their farming habits, medicinal plants, as well as the ancestral way of hunting with blowguns (cerbatana) and handmade traps in the forest.
On this trip a delicious box lunch will be provided.
After lunch we will go to AmaZoonico, which is sheltering a number of different animals, some in danger of extinction. AmaZoonico is not a zoo but a rescue center for animals of the Amazon in Ecuador. We can observe a wide variety of monkeys, macaws, ocelots, capybara, toucans, parrots and much more animals in their natural habitat at close range.
Return to Itamandi EcoLodge to enjoy the facilities of the hotel.
