The Ecuadorian wedge of the Amazon rainforest will enchant visitors with its cacophony of birdsong, the playful whoops of monkeys, the still black waters of the rivers, and the flutter of colorful butterflies and tropical birds.

Wildlife spotting

Wildlife spotting opportunities are excellent at the lodges here and your guides may be from local indigenous communities, as they are becoming more involved with ecotourism and have unrivaled knowledge of Amazonian flora and fauna. They can point out rare species of kingfisher, signal where to look for river dolphins on a canoe excursion, or explain the medicinal purposes of some of the thousands of local plants.

Getting there

You will enter the rainforest by road or air, and then by boat to one of the jungle lodges tucked away on the rivers, or take a cruise of several days on a boat such as the Manatee Explorer.

Ecuador is proud of its remote and unspoiled Amazon, which offers an authentic Amazon experience to its visitors.

      A stay at the Minga Lodge offers a unique opportunity to get to grips with what life is really like in the Amazon. Culturally, this is far more in-depth, interactive and rewarding than a regular Amazon visit and allows you to spend time with the local community during your stay.
