Huasquila Amazon Lodge is your door to Ecuador’s Amazon! This exclusive complex of bungalows is located within the Sumaco Biosphere Reserve between the Andean mountain chain and the Amazon basin. It is only a 4 hour drive (by private car) away from Ecuador´s capital Quito. At Huasquila we have 6 comfortable cabins built in Kichwa style in harmony with nature and equipped with all necessary facilities for making your stay in Huasquila an unforgettable experience. We speak English and German and welcome you in a family atmosphere.
There are several ways to get to Huasquila. You can take a regular flight to Tena or get there by bus or private car. There are three weekly flights to and from Quito, while buses leave every day at different times. The road trip offers lots of attractions and beautiful landscapes with volcanoes and waterfalls. You’ll also experience the descent from 4000m in the Andes down into the Amazon Basin. You’ll also drive through two ecological reserves and will notice the difference in the people and nature as your trip continues.
You can enjoy our beautiful waterfalls and rivers in the sun during the day and finish your day with a hot cup of Amazon cocoa in the afternoon. At night it gets cooler, so sleeping becomes no problem with a light blanket, this comfort is something other people in other parts of the Amazon miss, since it’s usually hot and humid at night…
