We are located at Laguna Grande in the Cuyabeno Reserve, a system of lakes, rivers, and flooded forest in northeastern Ecuador. The reserve has around 2,324 square miles (6,019 square kilometers) of primary forest and houses an incredible variety of Neotropical wildlife: river dolphins, tapirs, caimans, anacondas, jaguars, monkeys, piranhas, and more. The bird fauna is particularly spectacular - more than 515 species have been identified, including the prehistoric-looking hoatzins, blue-headed and scarlet macaws, and the impressive harpy eagle. Additionally, more than 12,000 species of plants have been recorded. There are also the Siona, Cofan, and Secoya indigenous communities, which have lived in the area for thousands of years.
