El Jardín Alemán
El Jardín Alemán has been welcoming guests since January 1996. A total of 225 hectares of tropical forest belong to the Lodge.
The Lodge is located on the banks of the Misahualli River, the main tributary of the Napo River, which forms the Amazonas River after 1400 km.
The nearest town, 4 km from the Lodge, is called the Misahualli River. For a long time it has been the end point of the road, and the starting point for trips in the Amazon region of Ecuador, which was completely isolated until the 60s, when the first oil fields were discovered.
Here, at the foot of the Andes, we are at an altitude of 500 m above sea level. There is a tropical climate. There are no marked stations, because the Ecuadorian line is very close. Temperatures are 18 - 22 degrees Celsius during the night and 26 - 30 C during the day.
The Quichua Indians live in the Upper Rio Napo region. The most cultivated plants are cassava, bananas of different species and rice (both introduced from Asia), corn, coffee, cocoa and fruits such as pineapple, papaya, citrus, avocado and cherimoya.
