THE CUYABENO RESERVE

Is a protected zone since 26 July 1979 with an area of 603.380 square kilometres (2,329.7 sq mi) One of the principle objectives of the Cuyabeno Reserve is ongoing conservation of the Amazonian ecosystem- the most complex ecosystem in the world.

This reserve is a complex of rivers, lagoons, and floating forest. This protected area is characterized by its high biodiversity and interrelationships between the species inhabiting the area. The Reserve’s geomorphology is a consequence of the rivers carrying sediment and materials from the Andes, principally by the Aguarico River.The huge volume of water cascading down from the mountains maintains the naturally high water levels ensuring that the river is navigable all year round.

Cuyabeno is becoming one of the flashpoints in the world in observing birds. There are also a large number of native mammals of the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve , including dolphins , manatees, at least 9 species of primates, including night monkey, which was first recorded for booking by our staff, different species of bats both insectivores eat fruits , many rodents , from the world's largest , the capybara , so many creatures underground and arbolícolas . And of course there are the sloths, anteaters and a number of South American felines , including jaguar and puma. When we say we will observe birds , we are naturally attentive to all animals. Ungulates are represented by tapirs , two species of peccary and several species of deer.

WHY CUYABENO IS ONE OFTHE BEST TOURIST SITES IN THE ECUADORIAN  AMAZON?

When you walk through the forest, the animals are difficult to observe because they are high. Also, when looking up, the contrast between the sky and the leaves is so great that look almost black. Just from the water one can see birds, flowers and mammals in the bushes and lower along the shore trees. However this only works along streams and narrow rivers. In wide rivers it is difficult to see wildlife along the river; rivers are so broad that they seem almost seas.

In the narrow rivers, on the other hand, one feels in the middle of the jungle while the river the sky opens enough to see the low and bushes along the river trees and enough light to observe birds, flowers and branches in mammals. As rivers are narrower at the top of the basin, narrow rivers are more abundant on the slopes of the Andes, but in most of the Amazon slopes are quite rugged, few rivers are navigable and there are no gaps. Cuyabeno is unique for being surprisingly flat.
