The Cuyabeno Fauna Production Reserve is located in the Province of Sucumbíos in the northeast of the Amazon Region of Ecuador. It is a place with great biodiversity, home to one of the largest concentrations of wildlife, both in flora and fauna; a complex system of rainy formations, 14 lagoons, rivers and a tropical forest.
Cuyabeno has more than 550 different species of birds: 60 species of orchids; more than 350 species of fish; a wide variety of reptiles such as anacondas, caimans and river turtles. An estimated 12,000 plant species can be found within the reserve. And many species of mammals, including the incredibleTapir.
Since the Cuyabeno Reserve belongs to the National System of Protected Areas, very few Tour Operators are qualified to work in this area. This is one reason why there are not many tourists visiting the area, so you can enjoy nature and its magnificent sounds.
