If you want a real in the “thick of it “ experience in this part of the Amazon then I would recommend this place. Getting there is a great adventure and it’s far from everything. Our host and guide was Livio and he was great. The only reason I would not give this place 4 stars is that small things like screens in some cabins needed small but basic repairs that could be done easily and the food portions seemed a bit small after a busy day of activities. However I understand it’s in the middle of nowhere and getting as much as they did is a logistical triumph in and of itself. It’s worth going and supporting small outfits line this knowing you are helping the local economy. Lots of wildlife but unfortunately we didn’t see dolphins.

What an incredible trip! We had Galo (the best!) as our guide, saw incredible animals, relaxed, played soccer with kids in the local villiage, cooked together and met some wonderful people. We arrived to Nueva Loja by overnight bus and were very very confronted by what we saw on the street in the middle of the night. This town is not safe, and is on almost every international governments "do not travel red zone," including Sweden's, Germanys and Australia. Do your research and arrive in the day time if possible.

We were fortunate to have Livio as our guide, and agree with the other reviewer of May 2017 that he is a fantastic guide. We were blown away by his incredible knowledge of the rainforest. He is like a ‘whisperer’ of all animal and insect life. We would be trekking through thick secondary forest, with Livio using his machete to clear a path due to recently fallen trees, when he would suddenly stop and ask us to be quiet...and as if by magic a troupe of monkeys would appear. He gave us great insight to the way plants are used for medicine, survival, food, water, and much more. He is a free lance guide so it is worth specifically asking if he can lead your group, whether at this or another of the Napo river lodges.

The wildlife and birds were absolutely incredible. We saw pink dolphins and way more. The day trips and our guide, Tamara, were wonderful though Tamara is still working on her English and I'm still learning Spanish.. Usually another tourist in the group was able to translate. The accommodations are VERY rustic. No fans at night and the temps are stifling. I couldn't sleep. The moskito netting is helpful but kills the least bit of breeze. Funky critters all around. I'm still recovering from a wasp bite sustained on the canoe and it's been 2 weeks... No sound insulation. It's like summer camp for grown-ups. We met some wonderful people. Cold water showers felt fantastic. Rice with almost every meal. Breakfast at 8am, lunch at 2 pm and dinner at 8 pm. Bring snacks and re-fillable water bottles or you will definitely be hungry from all the hiking and canoe paddling. Obviously there is no cell or internet. Enjoy the peace and nature sounds. Dolphin Lodge was the least expensive place around. Beware of the shuttle ride from Lago Agrio to Quito. All of the lodges contract with various companies for the $20.00 USD drive back to Quito. We rode on Christland Services Touring van # 13, None of the seats had seat belts and all the roads in Ecuador are super twisty and dangerous. There are many accidents and preventable deaths on Ecuadorian roads. Thankfully we were lucky though there were some close calls... Really my major complaint is the lack of seat belts in use even on expensive tourist transport throughout Ecuador. At 20 bucks a head in a 20 passenger van going out daily, one would think they would fix the seat-belts. 3 weeks prior I was involved in an accident in a taxi going from Quito to Mindo. Our taxi driver took a turn too fast and the only thing keeping us from going over the edge of a cliff was the boulder we hit. I was still a bit skiddish.

Yes, it’s an almost 5 hr ride to Amazon Dolphin, but it's fascinating and part of your experience. The "motorized launch" is a covered (open but with a roof) 20+ person boat with plastic seats. Not comfortable, but not a small canoe either. The first three hours are spent on the Napo River, which is a jungle highway. You’ll pass oil company barges delivering trucks or supplies or possibly dredging. Bag lunch is about 1 hr in. Bathroom stop about 2 hrs in. There's a hard left into the Panacocha reserve / Pirana River about 3 hrs in. Then things get interesting. The boat slows and you’re in the jungle. Have your binoculars ready. Rivers were very low in late December. We saw pink dolphins at the confluence of the Napo & Panacocha Rivers at the Park offices on the way home. Kitchwa guide Livio was fantastic! His knowledge of local animals, plants, medicine, and craft was extensive. We learned a lot and enjoyed the process. Cabins are amply sized with a double & a twin bed in each. Toiletries are provided. Showers are hot, even if there are no shower heads (in our two cabins at least). Food is very good. After some stringy beef, we enjoyed several good meals of fish, chicken, local fruit, rice, salads, and accompaniments. Always a cream soup first course, with popcorn croutons, the local custom. What you really need to pack: Socks at least one pr for each day - you will be in the provided boots Bug repellant An extra shirt or two - it’s hot & humid and you may want to change after a hike Hat & sunscreen for boat trips; long sleeve sun shirt if desired Flashlight or two; small is fine Sandals Hiking boots or sneakers if indicated for your stay- we didn’t need them Long pants - zips-offs are great because you’ll also want shorts T shirts - cotton or micro fibre, your choice Plastic garbage bags inside any non-waterproof luggage The jungle soundtrack included howler monkeys (the morning alarm and the sunset chorus), birds, and insects. We were met by a heron at the dock, red bellied macaws flew by as we had our orientation, and oropendolas nests were numerous. These snippets I will remember: sitting in the open lounge and feeling the forest come alive with the night. Canoeing through the morning mist, listening to the birds and crickets. Watching a heron winging past. We stayed the last night at sister lodge Yarina. More people, similar facilities, but larger and many more people.
