Cotococha Lodge ofrece 22 espaciosas cabañas, construidas acorde a la arquitectura tradicional de la zona, en armonía con el entorno circundante del bosque húmedo Tropical. Todas las cabañas poseen baño privado con agua caliente, un pequeño mirador privado con sillas de descanso o hamacas para el relax de nuestros visitantes, a la vez poder disfrutar de la vista y los sonidos de la Amazonía Ecuatoriana. Para mantener la magia de la Amazonia usamos lámparas de aceite para iluminar las cabañas, no contamos con luz eléctrica para no causar impacto en la flora y fauna, pero se puede recargar las baterías en la recepción.
