You are in Guayaquil and you want to get to Lago Agrio, in this blog you will find the necessary information for your tour to Cuyabeno with Green Forest Ecology.

If you want to go by car from the city of Guayaquil to Cuyabeno we give you the following recommendation:

We start from Guayaquil passing through Duran taking km 26 with the main destination El Triunfo.

We continue to Bucay and Alausí until we reach Palmira. If you have time, you can visit the desert with the same name where you can contemplate a unique landscape of its pine forest and other vegetation.

Following the road you can take the E35 road to Guamote, continuing through Columbe until you reach Colta where you will find the María Natividad de Balbanera building, which is the first Catholic Church in Ecuador built almost 5 centuries ago.

Following this same route on the way we will cross Penipe with Destination to Baños de Agua Santa. On the way of this route you will observe an elevation of the top 5 in Ecuador, the Chimborazo volcano with 6310 meters, being this the highest point in the world from the center of Earth surpassing Mount Everest.

When you arrive at Baños de Agua Santa, which is characterized as one of the most touristic cities in Ecuador due to the practice of extreme sports, its innumerable vegetative landscapes and its thermal waters will enchant you, since these come from the Tungurahua volcano itself, which has been dormant for a decade.


To continue, we continue via Rio Verde passing through Puyo until we reach Tena and then Loreto, you will be able to feel the difference in climate while the Amazonian vegetation is increasing as you approach the province of Sucumbíos-Lago Agrio and then we will go to the meeting point " Magic Paradise” and then go to the Cuyabeno Production and Fauna Reserve.


Note: It is recommended that the trip must be made one or two days before to arrive at the destination in time, as the way will take a duration of almost 14 hours of travel by car. It is optional to make a tourist stop in the main cities already mentioned.
