Whilst the Amazon basin is famous for its fauna and flora, the Ecuadorian Amazon in particular is thought to be the most biodiverse region in the world with just one of its national parks concentrating more species of birds than the whole of North America.

Other animals that can be spotted include various species of monkeys, pink dolphins, jaguars and capybaras. A variety of lodges provide visitors with the opportunity to visit this amazing region and include a series of guided tours throughout the jungle.

All lodges are located deep within the Amazon rainforest and offer an authentic experience. Although they range from the more rural to the luxurious and stylish, they all offer many activities including guided jungle treks, bird watching from jungle towers, piranha fishing and visits to local communities.

The Area

Having boarded an aircraft in Quito, the two main points of access to the Ecuadorian Amazon are the cities of Coca and Lago Agrio. From Coca, visitors journey on-board motorised canoes to lodges situated in the vicinities of the Yasuni National Park. Instead, from Lago Agrio a road continues east toward the Cubayeno National Park.

Best Time to Go

Expect frequent showers from December to June, but typically more wildlife encounters due to the abundance of fruit and vegetation. That said, the Ecuadorian Amazon features sprawling wildlife all year round.
