The premiere rainforest region in the world, the Amazon Basin encompasses six Ecuadorian provinces. It is pretty much nonstop adventure and so you should definitely plan a few days dedicated to this one-of-a-kind trek. From canoeing on the river, to guided hikes, to an entire day spent birdwatching for some of the most exotic species on the planet—there is no shortage of sights to see and things to experience.
There are lodges available right in the heart of the Amazon jungle—most travelers, erring on the side of safety, do opt for some sort of guided tour. There is also the possibility, depending on budget, of visiting communities indigenous to the Amazon.
  • CANOEING

    Several companies offer guided canoe tours down the Amazon and its various tributaries. The real adventure comes in what you may encounter along the way. The river is home to electric eels and piranhas, not to mention the monkeys swinging in the trees visible from your vessel.

  • PAPALLACTA

    This is, for all purposes, the entrance to the Ecuadorian Amazon. Many come here to benefit from what have been deemed the medicinal waters of Jamanco. Additionally, there are a series of 80 lagoons to be found in Cayambe-Coca Park.

  • GETTING AROUND

    Almost all travel sites and agents will recommend traveling the Amazon region with a group. You also will want to check and ensure that there ae no vaccines that you might need prior to your trip. Having a guide is often a good idea, someone familiar with the area and who can show you the best sights as well as safe places to travel.
