Recommendation for Jamu Lodge, lodging, eco-tourism

Guillermo Gomez is the owner/operator of this lodge on the Cuyabeno River in the northeastern section of the Ecuadorian Amazon near the Columbia border. He happened to be there during our stay because a film crew for the Discovery Channel had also just arrived for 20-days of filming. Upon recommendation from friends, we booked the four-day package. Just getting there was an adventure: 40/min flight from Quito to Lago Agrio where the lodge picked us up for a 2/hr bus ride to the river. There we had a good lunch before boarding a motorized canoe for the 2+/hr ride to the lodge, stopping to see and learn about several species of monkeys, a small anaconda relaxing on a tree branch, a sloth w/baby climbing high in a tree, and beautiful birds along the way.
