Blue Lagoon in the Talag
Alukus is a community that carries out community tourism activity within the primary Amazon rainforest. It began in 1994, with the aim of maintaining the cultural identity of indigenous peoples, the conservation of the ecosystem and the intercultural relationship with visitors from different countries. This Kichua community has a number of very interesting tourist attractions such as: natural pool, waterfalls, giant butterfly butterflies, orchid routes, fishing, gold washes, participation in the cassava farm, crafting, explanation of medicinal plants, hiking, ancestral knowledge of culture, history and indigenous traditions related around a campfire, shamanism rituals (optional). All this housed in rustic cabins built with environmental materials and enjoying native food.
People talk a lot about Laguna Azul in Tena, Ecuador. I thought I had never been there until I finally realized that they were referring to the same gaps that we used to go all the time as children. At that time it was called Amorongachi or Amoroncachi in Kichwa. I guess he needed a more "universal" name and Blue Lagoon Tena Napo was chosen. Although, the lagoons are not blue.
The Blue Lagoon talag is actually a series of natural pools formed by a tributary of the Jatunyacu River. The water is very cold and clear, and the surrounding jungle is beautiful.
Before, when we used to go in the late 90s there was only a small road at the end of the road that led to the lagoons. Now, there are huts built around the main pool and a door at the entrance where you pay to enter. The price is $ 3 for foreigners and $ 2 for Ecuadorian citizens and residents.
Luckily, the gaps themselves have not been manipulated. The water is still beautiful and if you ignore the mini-community on the hill it still feels like you're in the middle of nowhere.
One of the benefits of the new start-up - in addition to the toilets - is that it replaced the wet trunk that used to have to cross to reach the upper lagoons with a nice little bridge. The bridge is much less afraid of trying to maintain balance in the registry!
Multiple lagoons in the Blue Lagoon
The main lagoon is large and has a great place for those who like to jump. The water is crystal clear. It flows through a waterfall and into the Jatunyacu River below. This the Blue Lagoon Waterfall was being very dangerous. It is not a water slide! There is a rope through the lagoon to hold on to if it starts to float in the wrong direction, but the current is not very strong (it is not recommended that you swim if it is raining since the water could suddenly increase).
Behind the main lagoons, on the Jatunyacu River, you can see large volcanic rocks from the last major eruption of the Cotopaxi volcano, whose snow-cap feeds the river. There is a lot of black sand mud that some spa would probably love to have.
The upper lagoons are not so deep and have no waterfalls to worry about. These gaps are large if you have small children with you. I did not go to the upper lagoons this time. It is not (was) one with a natural water slide that is fun to go down and makes for a great photo op.
