Andes to Amazon: Explore Paikawe lagoon

Visit Us

Explore Paikawe lagoon

The Paikawe lagoon offers a perfect opportunity for a jungle foliage and wildlife experience which is really accessible from the road between Tena and Misahualli in the Ecuadorian Oriente.

Don Pedro, the guardian of this privately owned island and lagoon, will guide you on an hour-long paddle around the lake while he shares stories from his life and introduces his ‘friends’, which include a myriad of exotic birds and spider and woolly monkeys.  

You can combine a morning of wildlife exploration with an hour’s motorised canoe trip to visit the Amazoonico Animal Rehabilitation Centre on the lazy Arajuno river.
