Heading into the Amazon in Ecuador is a thrill for many visitors. Teeming with wildlife, the Amazon region offers everything from luxurious lodge experiences to in-depth cultural and holistic medicine retreats.
Tena and Misahualli are accessible by road and are the “entrance’ to the Ecuadorian Amazon. You’ll find large Kapok trees, butterfly farms and a general “jungle” vibe to these towns.
To get into the Amazon Basin, you want to venture to places like Yasuni National Park. Wildlife is rich here, and many lodges are locally run by the people who have traditionally lived here in the Amazon.
