The Panacocha Reserve, is a network of waterways winds through the 56,000 hectares of primary rainforest, home to jaguars and ocelots, 9 species of monkeys, 500 species of birds and many more. Important as it is in its own right, Panacocha achieves added significance as the corridor connecting 2 much larger areas.


To the south, it is bordered by the Yasuni National Park and World Biosphere Park which is 982,000 hectares and to the north by the 600,000 hectare Cuyabeno Biological Reserve. Nestled inside the Protected Forest is the Panacocha Lagoon..


It is here that you can see the Amazon River Dolphin swimming each day. Visitors can enjoy swimming in the lagoon as well as the magic of bird watching as they float along the edges in dugout canoes
