One of the most amazing, beautiful and humbling experiences of my life

I stayed at an eco-lodge on the bank of the Napo river. Myself and 30 others were participating in a charity project to build a school in the nearby native population

We spent several days in the Casa del Suizo Hotel (which I cannot seem to find to review) and it was a joy. We traveled to the animal sanctuary across the river, boated to a local indigenous village, and went on a fabulous hike through the rain Forest. This is a place to just sit back and bask in the...

We spent several days on the Napo River. We took night tours into the jungle. We rode on small boats in the rain. We took small canals to see many birds up close. We enjoyed the sounds of the Amazon and the amazing sunsets. We saw parrots, toucans, monkies, many plants and flowers. We took several tours to learn about... More

What a contrast. This mighty tributary of the Amazon where a multitude of wildlife can be seen and heard and yet so can the insistant sound of heavy machinery drilling into the earth to extract her riches. Fern Gully for real

We stayed on the banks of the Napo River. Lots of orchids, hummingbirds and other greenery. Did not see any parrots or toucans, which was very disappointing. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Very restful and peaceful experience.

They offer white water rafting on the river in certain areas and I think that would be worth it if you like action. We just took a short 30 or 40 minute ride in a long boat. It's sort of like a dugout canoe but it had a motor on the back.

We recently spent five days cruising the Napo River out of Coca, Ecuador. Monkeys, birds, pink dolphins, cayman, wild pigs and small piranhas were on the agenda but they weren't easy to see. The Anakonda was nicely appointed with excellent service. The guides were also terrific. Recommended.

Getting there was the start of a great adventure, flew from Quito to Coca, just outside the largest national park in Ecuador, Yasuni. From here, a bus takes you to the Napo River for a 2 hour motor launch trip after which it is another 2 hours bu dugout canoe to the lodge. The food was served buffet style, not... More

Whitewater rafting on the Napo River in Ecuador was the most fun I’ve had on the water since I was a kid! Wanted to be in the water but wasn’t sure how to find the right group – not too easy but not too hard…. The owner of the eco lodge where I was staying helped me find Alex, a... More

We visited the Napo River as part of our Gate 1 itinerary, staying at La Casa del Suizo for 2 nights. To get to the hotel, our bus dropped us off at Punta de Ahuano where we boarded motorized canoes, then rode on the river for a short ride to the hotel. Our activities included a visit to a local...
