Activities

Guided tours of the reserve can be arranged at the Cotacachi-Cayapas Ranger Station in San Miguel. The rangers here can serve as guides, and charge about $10 per day (entrance to the reserve is free). Two guides are needed for trips, with one for each end of the paddle-and-pole-operated dugout canoe. Alternatively, you can visit on a guided tour arranged through one of the lodges in San Miguel.
