Travel Tips

Prepare for your Cuyabeno Trip!

Clothing

cuyabeno 4.jpg


Long sleeved pants (preferable not jeans) and long shirts for hiking in the rainforest (also good protection from mosquitos). Light jacket (it can be a bit cold at night and during the journeys by canoe).  Light rain coat. Shorts, T-Shirts. Sun hat and sunscreen. Sneakers and sandals.  We provide you with rubber boots and rain ponchos. Insect repellent (not in spray if it is possible in order to avoid environmental contamination). Sunglasses and swimwear for swimming in the lagoon. Your own medicine, personal toiletries (we provide you with shampoo and soap, bioodegradable depending on the lodge). Flash light for an awesome night walk. Your personal documents and money in small denominations handicrafts, for the visit to the Siona Community and Chamán (USD 8-10) and/or for any additional beverages in the bar. A medium backpack (the space in the canoe is limited) and a little backpack. A good camera to capture the amazing natural life and your unique experience in this hot-spot of biodiversity is always recommended. 
Optional items: Dry bags to put your clothes in (Any plastic that comes to Cuyabeno has to leave as well to maintain this pristine forest). If you have, bring on your binoculars with you.

Health Precautions

It's always Smart (although not indispensable) to have 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 small/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.
