Green Practices

Green Practices: 

Cotococha Amazon Lodge is part of Pure! Travel Group, the Leading Boutique Tour Operator in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. We admire natural and cultural heritage and contribute actively and voluntarily to the economic and social improvement of the communities we work with, as well as to the reduction of the environmental impact of tourism. Our efforts are recognized by TourCert, the global certification for sustainable tourism and corporate responsibility. This Andes & Amazon program is a wonderful example of how tourism can contribute to economic, cultural and environmental well-being.

Cotococha Amazon Lodge is fully aware of our responsibility towards the vulnerable Amazon Rainforest. We have taken a variety of measures to protect the ­environment and support the local communities:

  • We use solar panels to produce electricity that provide you with warm water in the showers and allow you to charge your electronic devices in the social area. In addition, the lodge uses oil lamps and candle lights to illuminate the cabins and the paths leading to them, creating a unique ambiance;
  • A water treatment system makes sure no contaminated water spills into the jungle;
  • Solid waste is recycled as much as possible;
  • Domestic animals are not allowed in the lodge to not impact the local flora and fauna;
  • About 75% of the employees come from local communities and all guides are from the Napo region;
  • Local suppliers are contracted for transportation and the local production of handicrafts and other arts is stimulated by offering them to the guests;
  • The entrance fees of the butterfly garden and the animal rescue center support local initiatives contributing to environmental protection.

Also the lodge in Papallacta includes sustainable solutions in their daily activities, e.g., recycling waste, treating wastewater, using thermal waters as a source of energy, participating in environmental projects, and providing free health care to the local community.
