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...

I went to Ecuador and the Amazons with Gate 1 Travel in November, 2014, it was a great experience. Traveled in the Andes, see a lot of the native life and then to the Amazon in the southeast of the country, near Tena, Ecuador, to the jungles along the Napo River. Our tour guide Marcelo is very knowledgeable, very pleasant,... More

I rated this four stars, which included a 2 hour grueling hike, zip line, suspended bridge and muddy walking throughout the jungle to get there. The river was nice and the rafting at the end was a blessing, but the trek there was so exciting that I included the whole of it in my review. Fell 3 times in the... More
