Accommodation rating: Superior
At the lodge you can enjoy birdwatching (there are more than 500 species of birds here) as well as other wildlife spotting opportunities, including the chance to see caimans and several monkey species. The lodge features a butterfly farm and a 40-metre observation tower, and is the closest property to the Napo Parrot Salt Lick and not far from the Yasuni National Park. The 18 airy thatched suites (rustic bungalows) are built from natural materials and feature rustic yet very comfortable accommodation with ceiling fans, private bathrooms with hot water, mosquito netting and private balconies. Some suites offer views over the lake. There is a dining room serving delicious regional cuisine, a spa, while the open-air bar and lounge area offer panoramic views of the lake.
The journey to the lodge is part of the experience. From Coca, board a motorised canoe for a 2.5-hour trip down the Napo river to the lodge's main dock. On arrival, take a 15-minute walk with your day-pack (your main luggage will be transported by the lodge staff) to Lake Garzacocha, where you will board a paddle canoe to cross the lake and reach the lodge. A box lunch is provided on the boat journey and you will arrive at the lodge sometime in the late afternoon. All transfers and excursions are on a shared basis.
