Trip Info

First we take a pretty drive out to La Punta Ahuano, making a pit stop in Misahualli to visit and feed grapes to the playful monkeys that hang out in town and on their river beach. From La Punta Ahuano, we’ll take a motor canoe to a lodge with the most outstanding views of the jungle and river below. The pictures don’t really do it justice. After lunch at the lodge we’ll take a walk or hike out into the rainforest where your guide will point out and explain about jungle plants and any animals that you may encounter. After dark, we’ll take a night jungle walk looking for nocturnal animals and insects. There’s a great little area close to the lodge where a variety of rainforest frogs can be seen.

The next day you’ll get up early for a predawn walk down to the riverbank and out into the jungle to watch the birds take off at first light. THEN after breakfast we’ll do something that a lot of our guests really enjoy and find very interesting, a chocolate and chicha making demonstration. Martha, the mother of the owner of the lodge, lives on the island across the river from the lodge. We’ll go over to the island where she, or a member of her family, will show you how it’s done, right there under a shelter, on her little farm. You’ll get to see how chocolate is made, all the way from breaking open the cacao pod to tasting the final product, which she makes into what is most likely the most delicious fondue you’ve ever tasted. We’ll bring along strawberries and bananas for a special treat! After the demonstration we’ll take the motor canoe downriver to an amazing butterfly farm, followed by a lunch at a place along the river and another pit stop at an island where we sometimes spot woolly monkeys, before heading farther downriver by motor canoe to an animal rehab center. After that….awww, we drive back to Tena, tour over.

Please note: Currently, Gary is only involved in our 8-day Amazon Tour while Tarquino is pitching in, when he is available, with the 8-Day tour, our Day Jungle Tour, and our Overnight Jungle Tours. (So booking ahead is key with us!)

Your adventure awaits!
