Laguna Grande, Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve

Water Body Nature / Park
At the heart of a wildlife reserve lies Laguna Grande, a tranquil lagoon known for its multicolored sunsets and pristine swimming spots. The water level in the lagoon fluctuates greatly during the seasons, at times so much so that the lake dries up and sprouts grasses and trees. In wet season, rare pink dolphins and and fish call the lake home. Move swiftly across the lake's mirrored surface in a canoe, and spot the wildlife on land and the many bird species above. Put Laguna Grande into our Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve tour planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve.

  • The best place for swimming at sun set is in the middle of the lagoon. And fantastic wild life around the borders, with pirayas, kaymans, birds, snakes and everything you can wish for.  more »
  • Large lagoon where the lodges bring their clients to swim. A few small caimans near the banks, night birds.

  • The Siona lodge offers a swim in the lagoon at sunset. It costs nothing and is included in the itinerary. Simply wonderful!
