Amuntai Rainforest Lodge - Palora - Morona Santiago - Ecuador
AMUNTAI es el nombre del río que baña el lugar en idioma Shuar, lengua nativa del pueblo indígena amazónico que lo habla, sin embargo su pronunciación suena como "amundei", dado que en Shuar no existen las letras “D” y “T”, siendo lo más parecido, además a la última letra se le da un sonido de “E”. Este es el nombre del hotel AMUNTAI, que es de tipo LODGE, un lugar que queda en una selva con mucha lluvia y que lo coloca como RAINFOREST LODGE. Por otro lado, en el logo tenemos un ave de rapiña que es justamente el AVE llamada AMUNTAI por los indigenas Shuar y que da el nombre al río, pero que ha sido desplazada por la colonización al parque nacional Sangay, que inicia a unos 5 km de nuestra ubicación. AMUNTAI es una ave de rapiña parecida a un águila de tamaño regular, que tiene la habilidad de pescar, y cuando volaba muy alto generaba un silbido imponente que inspiraba en los habitantes originales una sensación de temor, profundo respeto y admiración.
Las instalaciones principales de Amuntai Rainforest lodge están insertas dentro de un área aproximada de 7 hectáreas de un total de 25 hectáreas adicionales de selva bañadas por el río Amundalo con innumerables piscinas naturales de agua cristalina y varias cascadas, conformando un mosaico de hermosos paisajes en medio de una gran diversidad de especies de flora y fauna propias de la exuberante región amazónica ecuatoriana.
Por encontrarse a una altitud de 900 metros sobre el nivel del mar posee un clima muy agradable, sin el calor sofocante que se podría encontrar en cualquier lugar selvático de la zona tórrida.

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.
