We at Rebecca Adventure Travel have selected several great Amazon tours to make your journey to this diverse country unforgettable. Spot a wide variety of animals and make incredible hikes in several parts of the Amazon rainforest. You will be able to decide which program fits your wishes the best. There are different Amazon regions you can visit in Ecuador such as the Cuyabeno Reserve, the Yasuni National Park and the beginning of the Amazon close to Tena.
Our tours in the Cuyabeno area guarantee that you will have the ultimate Amazon experience. We offer a tour with 4 or 5 days in an Eco-lodge and a 9 day tour that also includes a visit to Quito. Cuyabeno is located far into the Amazon, only reachable by boat, and it is one of the most pristine places on the planet. You can reach it from Lago Agrio, which is the pick-up point for our Cuyabeno Tours. In the Wildlife reserve, you can find many different ecosystems where you will be able to spot different types of plants and animals. On your way to the Cuyabeno Reserve, you can already spot some animals with your guide. You can spot monkeys, tropical birds and if you are lucky, even anacondas and pink dolphins. Looking for an adventure without being disturbed by cellphones and social media? Then, our Cuyabeno tours are ideal for you.
There are also Amazon tours around Tena which is located about 4 hours driving from Quito into the Napo area, in the east of Ecuador. Tena is not as far into the Amazon as Cuyabeno, so you are still able to communicate with the world. Due to this fact, you will have Wifi, phone reception and the lodges are a bit more luxurious. However, you still can find natives that remained isolated on purpose. At the Napo area, you can make incredible hikes, see a beautiful waterfalls and visit a local community. Nature is not as pristine as in Cuyabeno due to the development of the surroundings, but you still might see monkeys and some birds, but not as much as you would see in other areas in the Amazon.
The Yasuni area, close to Coca, is is a very remote area since it is very far into the Amazon. Yasuni is famous for its extraordinary biodiversity and its authentic indigenous cultures. In the Yasuni, the chances of spotting lots of wildlife and unique animals are very high. You will have the chance to spot birds, monkeys, and if you are really lucky, even jaguars. For the real adventurers the kayak tour is recommended. You will kayak from camp site to campsite which are hosted by the Kichwa communities of this very remote area. Enjoy the Ecuadorian Amazon region, special memories are guaranteed!
Experience one of the best lodges in the world: Mashpi. This lodge is part of the National Geographic’s list of unique lodges in the world. With only 24 rooms and about 50 staff members, it is the best place to relax and to discover the Ecuadorian cloud forest in pure comfort. The rooms are fully equipped, and all have a panoramic window, which will make you feel like you’re part of the cloud forest.
Baños is known as the “Gateway” to the Amazon region as it the last big city still located in the mountains before reaching the jungle. The atmosphere is laid back and relaxed in this sub-tropical climate. Tourists love to come to Baños for outdoor activities like rafting, canyoning, horseback riding, canopy, mountain biking or hiking. There is also a beautiful route through the most impressive waterfalls of Ecuador, Ruta de las Cascadas.
If you want a different experience, and you would like to contribute to the society of Ecuador, we also have volunteer projects. These are divided into social projects where you can help the people in need, nature projects where you can protect the Amazon animals, or eco-tourism projects on the Galápagos Islands. We also offer Spanish lesson programs, with the option to stay and live for a while with a true Ecuadorian family. The best way to learn the language fast!
