JAMU LODGE, Jamu means Armadillo in the indigenous language Siona, is a privately owned lodge located in the incredible ecosystem of Cuyabeno, where guests can enjoy different types of activities. We are located along the Cuyabeno River, 15 minutes downriver from the wonderful Laguna Grande. Our lodge practices a policy of minimum environmental impact. All our cabins are lit with candles; As natural as possible to preserve the feeling of being in a remote jungle. Solar panels help us work in the operating areas.

In addition, all inorganic material is packaged and removed from the reserve regularly, the organic material is used as fertilizer. Our belief in true eco-tourism is intended to make your stay as comfortable as possible while at the same time preserving the beauty of the Cuyabeno Fauna Production Reserve for the future.

Jamu Lodge has a purchasing policy, which bases its criteria on responsible products with the environment, minimizing unnecessary packaging and prioritizing returnable packaging, reducing waste production. Our waste is classified in a garbage separation system, with 3 strategic points within our facilities.


Prepare For Your Trip to the Amazon


The climate is tropical and humid due to our location at the equator in the Amazon Lowland. The annual temperature averages 25°C (77°F) with a daily minimum temperature of 20°C (68°F) and a maximum temperature of 30°C (86°F). Night temperatures are pleasant and fresh at around 18°C (64.4°F). Humidity ranges from 80 to 100% with an average of 3000 mm of rainfall a year. The area experiences a drier season from December to March and a wetter season from April to July.

We suggest that you wear light cotton, linen or silk clothes. Normally, you just need shorts and a shirt during the day and long trousers and a long sleeved shirt (which also provide very good mosquito protection) for the late evenings. Nights can be cool, especially when it rains, so you should bring a warm sweater. For sun protection, you will need a hat, sunglasses and a high protection sunscreen. Sandals for the canoe and tennis shoes are perfect for the lodge area and at night. You will not need trekking boots. Do not forget to bring your swimwear.

We recommend the basic vaccinations such as tetanus and hepatitis A. Cholera, typhoid and yellow fever are unknown in the region. Malaria prevention is a matter of choice. In this specific area, there is a moderate incidence of malaria. While the more serious form of “malaria tropicana” is very uncommon, all other strains of malaria do exist and are treatable with chloroquine or equivalents.
