Cruise the Ecuador Jungle

Updated: Sep 16, 2013

What do you get when you combine the old-world charm of a hi-tech riverboat with an Ecuadorian jungle? You get an amazingly comfortable travel experience and a rare glimpse into a world of Amazon wildlife including: freshwater dolphins, amazon manatee, over 500 species of birds, monkeys, tapirs, over 2500 species of butterflies (just to name a few!)

Riverboat travel promotes conservation and cultural exchange in the region it explores. Sustainable wildlife observation is at the core of the expedition programs, featuring the Yasuní National Park - the most biologically diverse place on Earth - the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, and other smaller reserves such as Limoncocha and Pañacocha. Visits to community centers are also important to get a complete picture of life in the Amazon basin.

The boat is Smart Voyager certified and implemented with many environmentally-friendly procedures on board and in the field. Journey down the Napa River in comfort.
