Arrive in the city of Coca and transfer to the Río Napo port. Take a 90-minute motorized canoe downstream to board the M/V Anakonda. After boarding, attend a welcome orientation and begin your journey down the Amazon. Following dinner, enjoy an optional nocturnal forest walk to discover the mysteries of this unique environment.
In the morning, disembark for the first daylight close-and-personal tropical rainforest experience, where you will see and learn about the incredible biodiversity of the Amazon.
After lunch, the ship navigates to one of the most pristine and rarely explored sections of Ecuadorian Amazonia, home to the legendary pink river dolphin, black caiman, and anaconda. Also be on the look out for river turtles, various species of monkey, and hoatzins. The only way to actually visit this flooded ecosystem is by canoe, a ride that will reveal the beauty of a lush jungle world. A glamping option is available to those travelers who wish to participate, please inquire for more information.
Day 3 Visit to a Local Community/Island Exploration
After breakfast, visit a school located on the banks of the Napo River, where you have the opportunity to interact with children in the area. After lunch on the ship, take a moment to relax while the boat navigates upstream. During this time, the crew will offer a lecture and documentary screening. In the afternoon, explore one of the largest river islands of the Napo River.
In the morning, visit an observation tower which is 100-feet high to get great views of the forest as it looms over the treetops. In the afternoon, visit Limoncocha Biological Reserve, a fascinating protected area where more than 478 bird species and several monkey species have been recorded. In the evening, head out to spot black caiman in the still waters.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
