At our center, we prioritize your well-being. Our lodge is equipped with a basic medical kit to address minor issues. For more extensive care, we collaborate with the local health center situated in the nearest community, a mere 15-minute journey from the lodge. Another health facility is available in the Wachirpas community, approximately 30 minutes away.
Should an emergency arise, our first course of action is to provide initial care at the lodge. If necessary, guests are transferred to the nearest health center. In dire cases requiring aerial evacuation, guests are flown from the lodge to Shell. Three local hospitals in the vicinity are adept at handling medical emergencies:
For extreme circumstances, an ambulance service can facilitate transportation from Shell to Quito. Thankfully, our guests rarely require these extensive services. Most commonly, we address minor issues like wasp stings, splinters, or skin reactions to insect bites in our office. Safe and sound travels are our promise to you!
