Which is the best Amazon area for me?
We have tour options within our three different Amazon regions, each one with special characteristics that makes each of them special according the type of experience you are looking for. It is important to learn more about what the three regions has to offer, in order to choose the perfect Amazon option:
Tena: The closest amazon destination from the city of Quito, just 4 hours’ drive. There is no need for a flight to make it into Tena, so this makes it an even cheaper option. There are a variety of categories for lodges in this destination, from budget to luxury. The wildlife abundance is still high with nice variety in what you can see during short walks every day. Tena is the ideal option if you have just a few days, this destination is also known for having high-adrenaline activities such as rafting, kayaking, zip-lining, and trekking through caves.
Cuyabeno: This destination is about 8 hours away from Quito, and currently, there are just few flights to their airport, so the best traveling option will be an overnight bus ride. The lodges here are more rustic and truer to the park’s environment. It is perfect for wildlife and adventure lovers, and here is where you have the highest chances to spot the pink amazon dolphin!
Coca / Yasuní: A commercial 45-minute flight to Coca, the closest city to the jungle, is the smoothest trip option to start an Amazon lodge adventure deep in jungle territory. Lodges in Yasuni are located in the deep primary jungle, one of the most biodiverse locations in Ecuadorian territory. Here you will find high end lodges with all the comforts in the middle of a mistic zone.
