Highlights from Eden Amazon Lodge by Nautica
Of all the terrestrial habitats on Earth, the undisputed champ of biodiversity is the Amazon Basin, with estimates of up to 30% of all organisms in the world found here. And of the countries that contain the Amazon Basin within their borders, Ecuador has the most biodiverse rainforest per square kilometer. This is due to the great abundance of Terra Firme (dry land) and diversity of habitats.
El Eden Comuna has about 400 Kichwa indigenous people and who are the sole owners of about 25,000 hectares (62,000 acres of rainforest) and Eden Amazon Lodge. The comuna has specifically designated all funds generated from Eden to improve the general level of living of the comuna members, live in peace and harmony, develop new projects and programs and improve health and education.
The Ecuadorian Amazon has the fastest access to the Amazon rainforest in all of South America.
Arrival to Eden starts with a 30-minute flight from the capital city of Quito to the town of Coca. From there, it’s about a 3.5-hour motorized canoe ride down the Napo River to Eden.
