Day 1

Quito – Coca – Enter Yasuni National Park

Let’s board a morning flight to the town of Coca town to begin our adventure. We’ll take a scenic drive to the Tiputini River, at the entrance of the YASUNI National park. While the guides prepare our gear, we’ll enjoy a riverside picnic. Our first expedition will be canoeing down this gorgeous river surrounded by complete nature and wildlife. Along the way, we will have opportunities to spot river turtles, monkeys, caiman and many species of birds like the oropendola, caciques, king fishers, macaws, toucans, parrots and more.

Day 2

Amazing encounters with wildlife while canoeing

After a healthy breakfast, we will continue our canoeing exploration, heading deeper into the jungle. Every day in the Amazon is a new adventure: the more we paddle, the more pristine and wild the jungle becomes with new exciting opportunities to encounter more wildlife, such as different types of monkeys, capybara, tapir, swallows, flycatchers, herons, sandpipers and hawks. We will also take hikes to learn more about local plants and their medicinal properties. In the late afternoon, we arrive at our camp site, located on the Tiputini River side. Our chef will prepare a special gourmet dinner for us tonight.

Day 3

Canoeing in the Anaconda Lagoon – Flooded Forest


After breakfast we will start navigating by canoe down the Tiputini to reach the entrance to the Amarun – Cocha, that means Anaconda Lagoon in the native language. This is located in the most pristine forest of the area and with luck we may see the biggest and most beautiful snake of the planet. We will also enjoy breathtaking landscapes with incredible dark and clear waters in a flooded forest. Over here we will discover the mythic piranhas, caimans, boas and more. Later we will canoe back to the camp site and after a nice break at the hammocks, we will go on a night exploration to view insects, frogs and possibly some snakes

Day 4

Educational Hike and visit to the Mandari – Panga local tribe

In the morning we will take a hike in the pristine forest to learn about the rich flora of the area and the medicinal plants. After lunch we will take a canoe ride to a local Kichwa community to learn about their way of life in the jungle, their stories and traditions. We will also see how they make the traditional drink called chicha. In the afternoon we will go fishing.

Day 5

Visit to the parrot clay lick – Flight back to Quito

This is an early morning venture because we want to get to the clay lick the earliest possible. It is one of our best adventures in the jungle, visiting the Lamederos or Saladeros (parrot clay lick) where there is a big concentration of different species of parrots and macaws, and few predators surrounding the area. They come to feed on the clay from the mineral enriched ground, which helps them digest and detoxify from the poisons of their main diet. Such places are unique in the Amazon rainforest, because they offer a great chance to see a wide range of Amazon wildlife species. Later we will return to Coca and take the flight back to Quito.

If the group has a flight in the afternoon or departure by bus, you could have an activity in the morning and have an early lunch in Mandari Panga.

How much should I tip?

Tips are not included in the trip cost. These are entirely at your discretion but there is an expectation to tip for good service. Your guide will help with advice; however, we suggest the below as a guideline per person:

  • IE Guides: USD 10- USD 12 per day
  • Local Guides: USD 5- USD 7 per day
  • IE Staff (Drivers) USD 2- USD 3 per day

Of course, you are free to tip more or less, and the amount should be reflective of your perception of service and quality – a tip is not compulsory and should only be given when you receive excellent service.

What Do I Do about drinking water?

The tap water in the Amazon is not always friendly on the stomach for those who haven’t been in Latin America for a while. There is purified water in each of the accommodation which you can use to fill up each morning, so be sure to pack a reusable water bottle or two.

What’s the weather like?

Seasons in Ecuador have nothing to do with temperature – instead there is a dry season and a wet season. In Ecuador, the winter season is hot and wet, and the summer is dry and cold. Ecuador’s dry, summer season falls between May and December. January to April is Ecuador’s wet wintertime. There is not much of a transition between the seasons.

The Amazon jungle is wet throughout the year, and experiences sudden, intense rainfall even during its dry season. It is also warm throughout the year. Tropical climate, and the temperature varies from the low 70s to high 80s (20 – 30 degrees Celsius).
