Flight to Coca

Here the Yasuni Rainforest Tour begins!

A rewarding 30-minute flight over the eastern Andes mountain range to Coca is the beginning of this amazing experience. After landing, a short five-minute drive to the port on the Napo River will take you on to a comfortable covered motor boat. Here we start a boat ride along the Napo for approximately 2 hours. Some aquatic birds can be spotted on the way. After arriving at Napo Wildlife Center’s welcoming area, we take a magical and peaceful 2-hour dugout-canoe along a narrow creek that connects to the lake where the lodge is located. Great chances to spot wildlife, various species of monkeys as well as large birds like toucans, parrots or even macaws. Late afternoon arrival at the lodge.
