How will you appreciate the richness of life and the bio-diversity of nature? Will you find yourself paddling silently along a dark river, at night, peering into the darkness at weird and wonderful insects, strange fishing bats and the prehistoric-looking caiman?
Or will you follow your professional naturalist guide along an overgrown pathway through virgin rainforest, looking at giant Kapok trees and strangler figs? Will you explore two contrasting landscapes and eco-systems, by canoe, on Garzacocha Lagoon? Or will you visit the Yasuni National Park to watch wild parrots and parakeets dosing themselves on mineral-rich mud?
However you decide to discover the Amazon on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Ecuador, you can rest assured that this ecolodge is helping preserve the experience for future generations.
