The best “roads” into the rainforest are its rivers. When traveled, these aquatic thoroughfares open up one of the most bio-diverse regions on the planet: The Ecuadorian Amazon. While Ecuador is blessed with a rich but dense Amazonian landmass, rivers make this rainforest more accessible to nature lovers and safari junkies. Taking full advantage of river cruises as accessible, comfortable, informative and exciting means for exploring the Ecuadorian Amazon, Surtrek’s favorite ship in this region is the extraordinary, state-of-the-art Anakonda River Cruise riverboat. The Anakonda enables authentic experiences and rare glimpses of how life on the river is actually lived. Not only can you interact with members of local indigenous communities, but you’ll also venture out on expert-led expeditions deep into the jungle itself. These daily excursions head out by motorized canoe to take you on jungle treks designed to reveal the exotic wildlife that calls the rainforest home. With any luck at all, you’ll spot sloths, toucans, Pink river dolphins and perhaps even a jaguar sunning on a riverbank! Some of the Anakonda’s highlights include paddling by canoe to Piranha Lake in search of white caiman and Water monkey fish. Later, you can crouch down behind a bird blind to observe up to hundreds of parrots descending on a “clay lick.” You’ll explore the waterways of the flooded Pañayacu Biological Corridor with a team of four expert naturalists, as well as learn about the everyday traditions of indigenous Kichwa women on visits to villages at the river’s edge. Rainforest hikes, birding walks, nocturnal river safaris… Yep, definitely, there are lots of things to do on an Anakonda tour. The accommodations on board this “floating boutique hotel” consist of 18 spacious air-conditioned guest rooms, with private bathrooms, private balconies and even  satellite-serviced Wi-Fi internet (though after testing it, we’ve found it to have a low-bandwidth connection… but hey, that means less to distract you from “modern civilization”). The Anakonda River Cruise riverboat is suited for all types of travelers. Considering a trip to the Amazon with your kids? No problem. To accommodate families, the Anakonda offers accommodations with as many as four interconnected suites and amenities suitable for each. What about trips for honeymooners? Of course! What better way to add thrill to your romance? Then too, this Amazonian cruise is an ideal way for retired couples explore a region that’s so demanding by land. No matter what kind of traveler you might be, you’ll be surrounded by interesting fellow adventurers who – like you – are also seeking authentic experiences. Passengers can socialize in the dining room, the bar, the al fresco lounge, the observation deck and even in the outdoor Jacuzzi. There’s also a small boutique where you can purchase souvenirs or any cosmetic product that you might have left at home. In addition to the guides, guests are assisted by the 25-member crew, which includes a concierge, a steward and a paramedic. To experience the rainforest with more privacy, your room’s panoramic floor-to-ceiling cabin windows will make it seem like you’re watching a big-screen National Geographic special. Just be sure you bring some good binoculars. All these features make the Anakonda the perfect option for larger groups as well. Consider chartering an Amazon cruise for your family reunion or perhaps as a corporate incentive program. Like the tropical kingdom’s awe, your options are limitless.   Remember, this once-in-a-lifetime riverboat adventure offers:

  • A Unique Vessel: The Anakonda Amazon riverboat is the only first-class cruise ship in the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest. Built in Coca, Ecuador, in 2013, the ship began operating its Napo River cruises in August 2013 with travelers from all over the world.
  • Fine Dining: Travelers taking Anakonda Amazon cruises will enjoy a wide variety of national and international fusion cuisine as the cooking staff combines international culinary traditions with those of the Amazon region and prepares these dishes using fresh, local products. It’s not unusual for guests to enjoy unique fare such as Quinoa Risotto or fish prepared in coconut sauce.
  • Spacious Suites: The boat’s accommodations are spacious suites that feature sitting areas, large comfortable beds, and wall-to-wall panoramic windows.
  • Jacuzzi & Sun Deck: Enjoy the comfort, amenities and service of a boutique hotel on board the Anakonda in the middle of the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest.
  • Observation Deck: The observation deck — along with its outdoor Jacuzzi — is an ideal place for relaxing and enjoying spectacular Amazon jungle views.
  • Al Fresco Bar: The ship’s al fresco bar & lounge is also a great place for having a cocktail, relaxing, socializing and attending briefings led by the expert multilingual naturalist guides.

Itinerary Details

Quito – Coca – Napo River

AM:

PM: Following a quick 30-minute flight from Quito, we will land in the Amazonian town of Francisco de Orellana (more commonly called “Coca”). Once there, we will drive to the river’s dock to board a motorized canoe that will take us downriver for about an hour, all the time admiring the rainforest landscape and banks of the majestic Napo River. We will then board the Anakonda Amazon Cruise motor vessel (M/V). Once everyone is on board the Anakonda, we continue sailing downriver. This is when passengers will be able to appreciate the host of features offered by this Amazonian riverboat. In addition to its roomy social areas and comfortable cabins, the ship possesses an observation deck for amazing views of the Amazon rainforest. This evening, we will go on a nocturnal jungle walk, which will give you your first chance to experience the sounds and sights of the completely different world of the Amazon by night. Sparkling fireflies and phosphorescent eyes will undoubtedly astonish you in this magical birthplace of life. Led by your guide, searching for nocturnal animals can be an unforgettable experience.

AM: Today we will continue sailing downriver until reaching the Pañayacu Biological Corridor, a sprawling primary forest that includes flooded and terra firma forest. Once there, we will travel by motorized canoe up another river to take in the sights of this amazing nature reserve. We will all keep our eyes out for the legendary Pink river dolphins, common Squirrel monkeys and a host of other animals. However, since Pañacocha (meaning “Piranha Lake” in Kichwa) is an ecosystem flooded by white waters, the lakes and rivers here are also perfect for aquatic life such as the notorious piranha, as well as the White caiman and the Water monkey fish (“Arawana”). In the afternoon, the more daring members of the group can go for a cool, energizing swim in those same waters. Later, everyone will assemble at a nearby camping site to savor a rich Amazonian-style BBQ and ice-cold drinks. Reinvigorated by our break, we will then strike out along trails deep into the rainforest, returning to the ship that evening for a well-deserved dinner.

PM:

AM: Following breakfast on board the Anakonda, we will head out to witness an astonishing natural phenomenon of the western Amazon basin. Groups of colorful parrots descend from the air to ingest the clay on some riverbanks almost every day. These sites, called “clay licks,” are unforgettable. Hiding behind a bird blind, you will have a chance (weather permitting) to view up to hundreds of parrots and parakeets attracted to the toxin-reducing sodium-rich clay. Our next activity will take us to the Sani Warmi Kichwa Interpretation Center, which showcases the arts, crafts, customs, traditions and everyday life of the local indigenous Kichwa community. After lunch, we will also stop at the Yakukawsay Kichwa Interpretation Center, where you will have a chance to buy handcrafted souvenirs and other locally produced goods. Following dinner on board the Anakonda, we should be able to go on a fascinating evening walk in Yasuni National Reserve, depending on the weather. Nighttime is the prime time for feeding in the jungle; so as soon as the sun begins to set, numerous creatures emerge that can’t be seen during the day. At some point on the walk, we will ask you to turn off your flashlight and stay quiet to let your senses adapt to the darkness, listening to the symphony of rainforest sounds. This is when you’ll truly be able to appreciate the vastness of the Amazon jungle and its countless secrets.

PM:

AM: Passengers will disembark the M/V Anakonda this morning to board a motorized canoe that will take us back to Coca (a one-hour ride), where you will catch your return flight to Quito.

Sparkling fireflies and phosphorescent eyes will undoubtedly astonish you in this magical birthplace of life. Led by your guide, searching for other nocturnal animals can be an unforgettable experience.

PM:

AM: After breakfast, we will disembark for our first daytime rainforest experience. Venturing along untamed trails, we will go on a three-hour hike that winds past towering trees, across streams and takes us beneath the primary canopy – while all the time observing the particularly abundant bird life in this region. You are sure to spot many of the 600 species of birds here, which include raptors, terns, macaws, parrots and toucans, though particular sightings depend on the weather and river level. Following lunch back on board the ship, the M/V Anakonda will cruise downriver to one of the Ecuadorian Amazon’s most untouched and seldom explored regions. Since the best way to visit this flooded ecosystem is by canoe, we will begin paddling along blackwater lagoons and rivers to discover the pristine beauty of this lush rainforest world. Here, you will certainly find the eerier eyes of Black caiman poking up out of the water as we also search for anaconda and the legendary Pink river dolphin. It’s likely that we will also come across various species of monkeys, all kinds of frogs and river turtles, as well as the primitive Hoatzin, a bird known locally as the “Stinky Turkey.”

PM:

AM: After another delicious breakfast on board the Anakonda, you will have a chance to interact with local children when we visit a village school. Meeting with the kids and teachers, you will have an opportunity to learn about the educational system and the way of life of remote Ecuador communities situated along the banks of the Napo River. Later, after making our way back to the M/V Anakonda for lunch, we will all appreciate a midday break as we cruise further downriver. On the ship, you will have a chance to participate in a presentation about the Amazon and view a documentary concerning the region. If there’s enough time, you can also learn about the typical handicrafts of the area, as well as try your hand at making some yourself. We will spend the afternoon exploring the exotic plant and animal life on Napo Island, one of the largest islands on river.

PM:

AM: As soon as we finish breakfast, we will climb a 100-foot high observation tower supported in part by a giant kapok tree. Reaching such a height will afford you a 360º range of vision over the forest canopy. From here, you can easily admire colorful bird species that are almost impossible to see from below, while orchids, bromeliads and wild lichen cover the tree branches all around. This afternoon we will visit the 13,000-acre (53 km²) Limoncocha Biological Reserve, a fascinating protected area that consists mainly of wetlands. Since this excursion will extend past sunset, we will also pull out our flashlights to do some Black caiman spotting before heading back to the M/V Anakonda for dinner.

PM:

AM: In the morning, we will disembark the M/V Anakonda and board a motorized canoe for a one-hour boat ride back to Coca. From there you will catch your return flight to Ecuador’s capital city, Quito.

AM: Today you will have a choice between a kayaking or canoeing adventure. The kayaking excursion will take you into the Yasuni National Reserve via the Indillama River, a tributary of the Napo. After a safety briefing, we will head out on this magical river journey. On the alternative canoe trip, you will paddle up and down the mighty Napo River. With either option, you can expect to spot monkeys, colorful tropical birds, river turtles and possibly sloths and other exotic creatures.

star rating  De inicio a fin, una experiencia única! La agente de ventas muy amable, respondió todas mis inquietudes previas al viaje y se aseguró de que todos mis requerimientos fueran atendidos durante el crucero. El guía asignado nos dio toda la información acerca de cada lugar visitado y se encargó de complacer con distintas actividades para que cada miembro de su variado grupo se sintiera atendido. En el crucero la tripulación muy atenta, sobre todo Carlitos que cuidó muy bien a nuestros niños durante la actividad de snorkeling. La comida variada y deliciosa. Y qué decir de esos paisajes maravillosos, quedarán grabados en nuestra memoria.
Conocer las islas encantadas de la mano de Surtrek es la mejor decisión. Les recomiendo!!
