MANATEE

Ecuador Amazon

Traveling around the Ecuadorian Amazon is, in fact, a remarkable experience. This unforgettable event may occur while you walk through the forest and meet a troop of Red Howler Monkeys moving above the canopy, or when you spot a pair of brilliantly colored Scarlet Macaws darting through the treetops. Not only well known for its fantastic diversity of flora and fauna, the Ecuadorian Amazon is also home to an incredible variety of fascinating inhabitants and cultures. During our voyage you will have the opportunity to meet and interact with many different communities that live along the shores of the Napo River Basin.
