Huella Verde Rainforest Lodge
Lonely Planet review
On an isolated meander of the Río Bobanaza around 45km south of Puyo, Huella Verde puts even the bigger Yasuni lodges to shame by offering fascinating excursions in equally intact jungle for a fraction of the price: ethnobotanic jungle hikes, chocolate-making and canoe adventures with Kichwa guides (extra charges apply).
There is also a restaurant (mains $6-15). Two bungalows, each with private bathrooms and hammock-slung terraces, have capacity for just six – making reservations obligatory. Independent travellers: head to the village of Canelos, off the Puyo–Macas road (a $25 taxi ride from Puyo), from where there’s a complementary canoe.
