We spent 4 nights here and had an incredible time. Our guide, Paul, was really knowledgable and friendly and our native guide, Darwin was also excellent. Good food, great service and lots of activities to keep busy. Clean and tidy room, well worth the money.More

The Napo flooded and rose two meters during our visit. We saw the Amazon rain forest breathe, absorbing the runoff from the Ecuadorian Andes and evolving seamlessly before our eyes. The transition was rare, unique, and shared with us by guides and indigenous peoples committed...More
