Ecolodge La Pedregoza
Our Ecolodge La Pedregoza has 10 comfortable double occupancy rooms for ecotourists. Every room has its own bathroom with shower, with a queen and twin bed or with 2 double beds. Electricity to charge cameras or laptops is available for 2 hours every evening, and there are solar-powered lights for after. Beds have mosquito screens and the rooms are designed for a pleasant breeze. The rooms also have a fan for when there is electricity. All water is pumped using solar well pumps, one of the reasons why we are truly an ecolodge. Adjacent to the ecolodge is our restaurant, Mi Viejo Congrio, named after one of the impressive native trees in the region. In the off season visitors can also eat in the plantation camp kitchen. Meals are typical Colombian food. The ecolodge is centrally located inside the plantation, close to agrotourism venues and of course central to the Reserva Natural La Pedregoza and to the world's first protected river, the Río Bita. We welcome groups, be they family, friends or business, who wish for a relaxing retreat well off the beaten path. To make a reservation, simply use the contact form below or email us. Our rates are $100 USD plus applicable taxes per person per night all inclusive, with all meals and 2 alcoholic beverages per person included, as well as transport from and back to the Puerto Carreño Airport (PCR). There are 5 flights a week between Bogotá and Puerto Carreño with Satena, a domestic airline.
What are some of the activities?
The natural reserve is divided into 3 parts. In the East we have the Dolphin Forest, with an access path past Jaguar Lake and on to Dolphin Beach along the Río Bita in the dry season. The East also features an impressive morichal (heavily treed savanna drainage creek) and our Sacred Seeds Botanical Garden for medicinal and alimentarty plants of the Orinoco River basin. The North features the Turtle Forest with a path leading to Turtle Beach along the Río Bita in the dry season. There's a Central Morichal that has ornamental fish and an exquisite natural pool. To the mid-West we have Caño Manatí, great for kayaking in all seasons. There are bird watching points along several smaller morichals and wetlands. In the evening it is possible to take a hike through the savanna with serranías (small hills)) that offers some amazing views. Further to the West is El Templo, a spiritual place for communing with nature. A short distance away there is access to the Pineapple Forest, named after wild pineapples that grow there, with the path terminating in a refreshing rainforest pool during the dry season. In the wet season kayaking in the tree tops in the inundation forest is the main event. There are several days of activities, no matter the season.
