As Ecuador is one of the smallest countries in South America, you can visit different areas easily, and this makes the country an amazing option for Amazon rainforest tours. These tend to be more affordable and accessible than jungle tours in neighboring countries.

In fact, Ecuador is home to what many consider to be some of the Amazon’s most magical places, as it is home to 3 different areas: Tena Region, the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, and Yasuni National Park.

Occupying approximately one third of Ecuador’s land area, the Amazon basin lies to the east of the Andean Highlands. Commonly referred to as the “Oriente”, this region is exceptionally rich in biodiversity of both flora and fauna. There have been established several parks and reserves, to protect the ecosystem. The three main regions to visit are Tena, Cuyabeno and Coca Region (Yasuni National Park), each offering its own unique experience.

Since we are in the equator there are only two seasons: dry and rainy. The dry season runs from December to March and the rainy season from June to November. There isn’t really such thing as a dry season in the Amazon Rainforest, but usually, it tends to rain less frequently, so we like to call them rainy and rainier.

Keep in mind that the overall climate does not vary much during the year. Most days you’ll experience some sun and some rain.

It is best to be prepared for all kinds of weather in any month because sometimes rainstorms appear out of nowhere and at night it can get chilly (especially after it rains).

There are no legal vaccination requirements for Ecuador, nonetheless we recommend you ask your physician at least one month before departure to get the most up to date health information and precautionary measures.

All lodges keep a complete first aid kit for any minor injuries or ailments you may experience. However, please take any special medications you might need with you. In case of a serious injury or illness, you’ll be transferred to the closest local medical centers.
