Cuyabeno jungle is an amazing spot, and it was so good to get so far away from civilisation and deep into the Amazon jungle. Took about a 2hour bus ride from Lago Argio followed by a 4 hour boat ride to get to the lodge we would be staying at for the next 3 nights.
The heat was extreme in the jungle and because of the mosquitos you had to make sure you were covered up. However, a jump in the river was a good way to cool down, but you didn't want to stay in very long!
We were lucky at had a nice small group, just us, a german girl (Ana), and english guy and our guide Paula. Did lots of activities: night walk, prianah fishing, bird watching, boat trip, jungle walk, and visited a tribe that lives in the jungle. Saw monkeys, river dolphins, turtles, birds, and lots of crazy and super sized insects. We even had a tranchular in the roof of our hut.
Ana (the German) provided us with some good entertainment with her screams during the night because of the spiders in the rooms! Lucky we had good mosquito nets.
We were lucky and didn't get any rain until half way back on the boat on the way out, then it absoultly poured down! All good though, as they provided us with heavy duty punchos.
Then it was back to Lago Arigo for a night before we caught the bus back to Quito, where we quickly picked up the rest of our belongings and jumped back on a bus to Otavalo.
