The Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve is an important nature reserve in Amazonia with rather unusual ecological characteristics. Located at the foothills of the Andes, it is different from any other Amazon protected area in the world. The area encompasses a poorly drained plain with a network of periodically inundated forests, lakes and creeks. Such conditions are rare so close to the Andes, where the drainage in the foothills prevents the development of swamps and lakes. Given its proximity to the mountains, combined with a slightly cooler and wetter climate it may be expected to have a partly different species composition than other areas in the upper Amazon watershed.


As all protected areas in the Amazon region, the area has a high biodiversity, but possibly a bit lower than better drained protected areas like the neighbouring Yasuni National Park, which is considered the most diverse park in the world.However, such claims must be met with caution, as insufficient data of other areas exist to scientifically compare the diversity of areas. Moreover, to the incidental visiting tourist or even professional biologist such differences are irrelevant because all areas close to the Andes are incredibly rich in species.

When to go to the Galapagos Islands?

From January to May: these dates are usually sunny, with occasional showers and less rain. June to December: dry season and somewhat colder, although it almost never drops below 20 degrees, especially due to the Humboldt current. We were there between November and December, the temperature was perfect but the water was a bit cold.

How many days do I need for the Galapagos Islands?

Since going to the Galapagos Islands is expensive, and that at least two days are for traveling, we advise you to stay at least 5 days. The more days you stay the more opportunities you will have to see marine life and visit more islands. It is important to keep in mind that in order to do most of the activities you have to pay for a tour, with an official guide of the Galapagos National Park, so in order to have a complete experience you have to prepare a good budget.

How to get to the Galapagos Islands?

To get to the Galapagos Islands, it has to be from mainland Ecuador, no matter where you come from, there are only connecting flights from Quito or Guayaquil. There are two airports in the Galapagos Islands, you can choose between Baltra airport (the first ecological airport in the world) or San Cristobal airport, depending on how you have organized your trip. Flight prices are usually between 300 to 500$, you can get the best prices in Skyscanner. We were touring Ecuador starting from Quito, to Guayaquil, from there we took a plane to Baltra airport.
