IMG_9674IMG_9679Our lodge was downstream of the Laguna Grande of Cuyabeno Reserve. We took a motorised canoe there and explored the edges, swam (avoiding the Caimans) and enjoyed the sunset in this extraordinary place.

It was a photographers’ heaven. And with the lagoon only existing in the wet season, we were lucky to experience it.

Here in the national park we saw evidence that the tourist industry works with the indigenous community to create a sustainable environment. But we fear oil companies elsewhere are destroying so much more.
