The Amazon Jungle in Ecuador is one of the most alive and dangerous places we have ever been! Pink river dolphins, piranhas, tapirs, sloths, howler monkeys, tarantulas, snakes, and SO many more animals and insects call Cuyabeno Reserve there home, and we spent four days here! We ate ants, swam with who-knows-what, and paddle boarded through a proper rainforest rainstorm.

Cuyabeno is possibly the best place to tour the Amazon, and the lodge we stayed at was tucked away far away from any other tour companies. We felt like we were properly in the middle of the Amazon rainforest, with a 2.5 hour boat ride between us and the nearest road. We got some epic amazon jungle drone footage to show just how massive and dense the amazon jungle truly is, and had an AMAZING time carefully exploring this bucketlist destination.
