This region is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, home to literally millions of species of plants, animals, birds and insects. There are no roads to get to the lodge and the nearest city is Coca (Francisco de Orellana). From here, the best way to get to the lodge is by a two hour motorized canoe ride down the Napo River. Explorers will travel down river aboard a locally crafted canoe, experiencing a typical ride to the lodge just like the locals. On the way travelers will be able to see the first glimpses of the Amazon rainforest and you can appreciate the houses and way of living of the local people as they go on about their daily routines by the riverside.
