Amazon Dolphin Lodge - Panacocha Protected Forest - Ecuador

East of the Andean mountain range lies the steamy rainforests of Ecuador's slice of the Amazon Basin, known as the Oriente. With an amazing diversity of flora and fauna, the Oriente occupies half the country but is home to less than 5 percent of the people. The tropical jungle, however, is more accessible than you might imagine and accommodations are probably more civilized than you would expect.

 

Regular flights from Quito to Coca city allow you to experience a virgin jungle in pristine condition, with thousands of species of orchid, plus sloths, monkeys, macaws, and pink river dolphins. And throughout this hot, sticky paradise are dozens of native tribes, retaining ancient customs despite the intrusion of outsiders.

 

Amazon Dolphin Lodge - Panacocha Protected Forest - Ecuador

Pañacocha Protected Forest:


is a network of waterways that travel through the 56,000 hectares of primary rainforest, home to jaguars and ocelots, 9 species of monkeys, 500 species of birds and many more.

 

Important as it is in its own right, Panacocha achieves added significance as the corridor connecting 2 much larger areas, to the south, it is bordered by the Yasuni National Park and World Biosphere Park which is 982,000 hectares and to the north by the 600,000 hectare Cuyabeno Biological Reserve.

 

Nestled inside the Protected Forest is the Panacocha Lagoon.

 

It is here that you can see the Amazon River Dolphin swimming each day. Visitors can enjoy swimming in the lagoon as well as the magic of bird watching as they float along the edges in dugout canoes

Ecosystem ...


The Amazonas ecosystem, particularly its tropical rain forest, is considered to be one of the richest and most complex communities of plant and animal life in the world. The region is characterized by huge and diverse amounts of flora and fauna with extraordinary variations in their habitats and micro­ habitats.

 

In the jungle of the Upper Amazon 100 species of trees per acre have been recorded. In Central America, only up to 40 species per acre have been discovered. In the temperate forests of North America and Europe, rarely more than 20 different species exist per acre.

 

The Amazon's rivers, lakes, streams and marshlands support over 600 species of fish and more than 250 species of amphibians and reptiles. The lagoons of the Napo and Aguarico River basins are home to colonies of two species of caimans that grow to over 13 feet in length.
