Itinerary In Detail
Hop on a 30-minute flight from Quito to Coca for the start of your journey into the jungle. From there you’ll make a short transfer to “La Mision” Port, where you will embark on a comfortable covered motorboat. Ride along the Napo River for about 2 hours to the Napo Wildlife Center, located in the Yasuni National Park.
From your first moments entering the jungle, you’ll be surrounded by unique creatures. Species of monkeys, as well as large birds like toucans, parrots, or even macaws, can be spotted on all sides. The Ecuadorian Amazon is home to more than 600 bird species. Take an early morning hike to the parrot clay licks – natural clay walls where various species of vibrantly colored parrots and macaws link to the clay as they feed every morning.
Once you’ve gotten the lay of the land at the ground level, it’s time to get a view from above. Climb the canopy tower to get a spectacular view of the forest among the treetops. Flocks of colorful birds will flit all around, as Spider Monkeys munch on some fruit in the neighboring trees. Animals that are virtually impossible to see from the forest floor will suddenly be within an arms reach.
While in the Ecuadorian Amazon, venture to the local Kichwa Community of Añangu. Spend some time with community members learning about their ancestral customs, traditional practices, and so much more.
On your last day, transfer back to Caco and fly back to Quito for your international flight connection or to continue your trip in Ecuador.
