our history


back then

In 1959, Milton Pacheco thought he saw paradise. While transporting DDT (a discovery by Paul Hermann Müllers that led him to win the Nobel Prize in 1948), the cure for malaria, he came across the port of Misahualli. There he became convinced that one day this hidden gem would be the vanguard of the Amazon region. It took him 24 years to fulfill his dream, as he opened paths and built from scratch what we now call Misahualli Amazon Lodge.

Established in 1983

Misahualli Amazon Lodge, welcomed guests, scientists and the most intrepid travelers who wanted to visit the wild Amazon jungle. We continue this tradition with a lodge equipped for your comfort and the more than 370 acres of protected forest that continue to thrive to this day.

Como llegar

Just a 3h:30 min drive from Quito will take you to the original gate of the Amazon. The incredible journey of crossing the colossal Andes mountains while encountering the exotic slope into the Amazon jungle is a journey in itself. On this journey you will cross the mysterious Antisana (45min), go to the mythical Sumaco-Galeras reserve (45min), and finally descend to Tena (1h:30min). Located just 20 minutes from the capital of the Napo Region, we wait for you at the beach to go to the Island where the Lodge is located.
