Overview

Highlights / General details

Cotococha Amazon Lodge is located 200 km (125 miles) southeast of Quito, and can be reached in an amazing 5 hour drive from Ecuador's capital or a 4 hour drive from the town of Baños. The surrounding area forms part of the Upper Amazon Basin, known as one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world and characterized by small Quichua communities and abundant vegetation.

A huge advantage for travelers who want to continue southwards through Ecuador as you will not have to return to Quito.
