Located less than five hours from Quito in the Amazonian rainforest, the Las Cascadas Jungle Lodge was named after a spectacular jungle falls whose waters plunge 130 feet into an idyllic natural pool of a grove below. Many indigenous groups view these jungle cascades as sacred, and one can’t help but feel that something is indeed spiritual when sensing the power of the water. Las Cascadas Jungle Lodge is a wonderful place for relaxing and enjoying tours in the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest, as well as providing hands-on assistance

star rating  Gran viaje, excelente servicio  - Los tours que nos recomendaron y que hicimos fueron muy buenos. Muy buena atencion y servicio.

También quiero mencionar que uno de nuestros vuelos se atrasó y ellos movieron mar y tierra para que no se perdiera el vuelo. Se terminó cambiando el vuelo gracias a ellos y hasta en el aeropuerto de galápagos ya sabían de nuestro caso. Muy agradecidos con Surtrek.
