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.

Review Information

Galapagos Islands

Extraordinary flora and fauna, a place you must visit...!

Galapagos Islands are worldwide known for their wide biodiversity and for being the point from where Charles Darwin developed the theory of evolution.We present you 5 facts that perhaps you didn't know about the Enchanted Islands.

The term "Enchanted islands" first appeared on a map in 1589.Sailors nicknamed thus to the Galapagos Islands, by referring to these "appeared and disappeared", since due to the sea currents strong, access to the Islands was limited at certain times of the year. The nickname transcended over the years and today is still saying that the Islands are "delighted", but referring now to the great biodiversity of flora and fauna.

The Galapagos marine iguana, is the only species of reptile in the world that has managed to adapt to life under water.

The Islands are named for the giant tortoises that live there (the Galapagos word meaning turtle). This species can reach up to 16 hours a day to sleep and mainly feeds on cacti that grow there.

In keeping with the turtles, originally there were 15 species of giant tortoises in the Galapagos, unfortunately 5 of them are completely extinct, so there are only 10. The main threat of the turtles is the human being, who for years has been dedicated to hunting them for their meat and oil.

The Galapagos Islands were part of the second world war! During this war, the Government of Ecuador allowed the United States Government build a runway with strategic aims in the Islands.When the war ended, the Americans abandoned the place. That track currently serves as the main airport of the Islands, which welcomes the year thousands of passengers.
