This is the jungle and is expert in making you kick back and relax!
This is the spot for piranha fishing, pink dolphin spotting and anaconda watching! With monkeys and tapirs abound, there are many jungle species to see amid the lush rainforest and a number of eco-lodges to fully enjoy your Tarzan experience! The Ecuadorian Amazon is home to a number of native tribes.
Quechua culture and traditions are kept alive, communities continue to flourish, and travellers are provided with a unique experience at a local level in an Amazon lodge, in a more remote destination. All the good of travel, without the harmful social impact. Head into the jungle armed with a machete a good attitude and a wealth of knowledge from your guide, who will teach you how to use a blowgun, as well as coffee and chocolate making sessions.
Many of these tribes are deeper within the Amazon, where it would take days for those who live on its fringes to reach them. If you want to experience and learn about the indigenous tribes of the Amazon, you can from the locals you live with, since core parts of the culture and traditions have been passed on, even if these communities now live differently. Jungle walks teach you about basic survival, hunting and the medicinal properties of plants; daily life teaches you about the coexistence with nature and the respect of the rainforest’s other (animal) inhabitants.
