Day 1. Your journey starts with a 35-minute flight from Quito to Coca, where the staff will pick you up and transfer to a local hotel located on the banks of Napo River. There, your bilingual guides will explain about safety before embarking for a 2 ½ boat trip on the largest Ecuadorian affluent of the Amazon, the Napo River. The canoe ride is followed by a 15 minute walk through flooded forest, and 20-minute paddle canoe across the beautiful Challuacocha Lake.
Day 2. After breakfast, experience the life on the tree tops from the 36 meter (108 ft.) observation tower.. Over 565 species of birds have been registered so far, including colorful birds such as macaws, toucans, honeycreepers, tanagers, flycatchers, hummingbirds and with a bit of luck a close view of howler, squirrel monkeys or sloths resting on the canopy. After lunch there are many alternatives for your enjoyment, bird-watching from the dining hall or simply get relaxed on the hammocks.
Day 3. After breakfast departure to the Napo River to board the boat and visit the parrot-clay lick at Yasuní National Park for a wonderful view of hundreds of parrots.
