La Casa Del Suizo

Satiate your curiosity for the Amazon rainforest, learn new things and most importantly, have fun and relax with friends and family in one of the most established jungle lodges in Ecuador. Each day on the Napo River promises new adventure: the monkeys you spot out on the way to activities, the local community you witness; and the raft you build with your own hands. As the sun sets over La Casa del Suizo head to the swimming pool to gaze at the stunning jungle view, relaxing into the night.

It’s easy to forget how close you are to civilisation when surrounded by the perfect wilderness of the Napo River, the Amazon’s largest and most powerful tributary, and its lush, tropical forests. But La Casa del Suizo is accessible by car or bus (with a secure carpark to leave your vehicle) around three and a half hours from Quito, followed by an easy 20-minute ride on motorized canoe.

ACCOMMODATION:

Leisurely awaken to the calls of tropical birds and the rush of the majestic Napo River in our 77 peaceful rooms, each with its own terrace and hammocks to take in exquisite river and jungle views in private. Full electricity (including numerous power outlets), ceiling fan and 24-hour hot water ensure the most comfortable of stays.

THE SWIMMING POOL:

The word “TROPICAL” Doesn’t only apply to caribbean beaches
Discover what it means here in the Amazon when you take a dip in the swimming pool after your day’s adventures, watching the setting sun turn the sky all shades of pink over the river and lush forests, swapping stories with friends and family.

THE BAR:

Indulge you and your friends with our signature drinks
End the day with an ice-cold craft beer, crisp white wine or fluffy piña colada at our well-stocked bar manned by expert mixologists, sitting back in the homey lounge or river-view seating. Please note that drinks are not included in your package.

SAVOUR:

Dishing up
Indulge your holiday appetites or fuel up for an action-packed day with popular international and Ecuadorian dishes as well as soups, salads and desserts in our colourful and varied breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets. Vegetarian and allergy-free options are available in our open-fronted restaurants with views over the pool and river.

ACTIVITIES:

TREKKING IN THE JUNGLE:
Explore incredible primary forest in Misicocha or Cosano, La Casa del Suizo’s private reserve, reached by a short canoe ride. Here, there are a number of walks (with varying levels of difficulty) that can last anywhere from an hour-and-a- half all the way up to four hours, taking you through thick and humid jungle, crossing muddy paths and encountering all sorts of wildlife. All the while your local guide will introduce you to all the hidden secrets and wonders of the jungle.

BALSA:
Follow in the footsteps of Francisco de Orellana – the Spanish discoverer of the River Amazon – himself as you build your own raft, known as a balsa, using the same technique indigenous communities have for centuries, and still use to this day. Once you’ve lashed together your ‘vessel’ of balsa wood logs and lengths of rope, it’s time to take it to the water, paddling leisurely downstream – and hopefully staying afloat. Your guides will accompany you each step of the adventure, along with your motorized canoe.

TUBING:
Floating down the Napo River, gazing at the sky and the tree-lined banks, your bottom firmly wedged into a rubber ring and grazing the surface of the water, you would be forgiven for thinking you had drifted into an Amazon dream land. In this activity, a guide will accompany you in a motorized canoe and will pick you up at the end of the run.

TARABITA:
To up the adventure factor on your trek through Misicocha, try out the tarabita. Found in the depths of our private reserve, the basket-like cable car for one person swings you a short distance from one part of the forest to another, like a mechanised Tarzan! A guide waits at both ends to oversee your safe departure and arrival.

CANOPY ADVENTURE PARK:
Make like a monkey swinging from the tree tops at the Canopy Adventure Park, where zip-lines for almost all ages have you whizzing with joy through foliage and across the jungle floor. Our experienced guides and premium materials ensure that it’s an entirely safe experience, and with the Edelrid Smart Belay system you’re always snapped onto the line by at least one point.
Extra charges apply.

KAYAKING:
Discover the secret nooks, crannies and rapids of the Napo River and its tributaries at your own pace on this thrilling voyage, accompanied by experienced kayaking and safety professionals. Ages 12 and up.
Extra charges apply.

NATURE: 

COME FACE-TO-FACE WITH THE AWE-INSPIRING WILDLIFE OF THE AMAZON

BUTTERFLY HOUSE:
This living exhibition of local butterflies currently houses and serves as the mating ground for nearly 20 species from the surrounding areas. You’ll be able to observe and examine how these beautiful creatures are fed, raised and undergo metamorphosis. In addition, you’ll have the chance to enter our “winged room” where hundreds of butterflies, in a multitude of colours, flutter about.
Extra charges apply.

AMAZOONICO:
You’ll never get closer to ocelot or tapir than you will at AmaZoonico, a rescue sanctuary for Amazon creatures. Led by volunteer guides, you’ll hear the incredible and sometimes tragic stories of the residents of the centre, from caiman to macaws and everything in between, who struggled to readapt to the wild after they were taken by poachers, sold on the black market, and forced to live domestic lives. By visiting AmaZoonico you are helping to guarantee the protection of these creatures.
Extra charges apply.

NATURE WALKS:
Explore incredible primary forest in Misicocha, La Casa del Suizo’s private reserve, reached by a short canoe ride. Here, there are a number of walks (with varying levels of difficulty) that can last anywhere from an hour-and-a- half all the way up to four hours, taking you through thick and humid jungle, crossing muddy paths and encountering all sorts of wildlife. All the while your local guide will introduce you to all the hidden secrets and wonders of the jungle.

CAIMAN SPOTTING:
The first thing you see is the ripple in the water, before a pair of be-spectacled eyes rises from the murky depths and stares into your own. Before long more and more pairs pop up: the family of caiman have arrived. While safely positioned on a wooden jetty, your guide will summon the reptiles with some meat and you are free to observe the group, sometimes of around 15, ranging for full-sized father to weeks’ old baby.

NATURE: 

DOING NOTHING STILL COUNTS AS DOING SOMETHING ON HOLIDAY!

SWIMMING POOL:
The pool, which is great for children and adults alike, is open from 6 A.M. until 9 P.M. and deck chairs and seating areas are available for relaxing in the Amazonian sunshine.

MASSAGES:
Take a moment for yourself to indulge in a relaxing or invigorating massage, taking advantage of the expertise of our staff in reflexology, lymphatic drainage and hot stone techniques. Return from your vacation glowing like a firefly with specialist skin treatments.
Extra charges apply. Please book in advance to guarantee your massage.

TESTIMONIAL OF OUR CLIENTS

Fantastic trip with EGT on Tip Top V We had a fantastic 8D/7N trip on the Tip Top V boat, eastern route. We found the trip through dealsgalapagos.com which are Ecuador Green Travel. Carlos Risueno did a fantastic job from start to finish booking our trip. His communication was spot on, everything was correct, his responses very prompt. I couldn’t fault him at all. The rep who met is in Quito airport was also spot on and helped us get through the 2 additional checks you need before boarding your flight to Galápagos. The trip itself was fantastic. The boat Tip Top V was definitely first class. The boat was modern and very clean, having been built in 2019. Our cabin was big enough and had everything we needed and a balcony. The food was brilliant; a huge selection for breakfast with something different every day. Every lunch and dinner consisted of 3 courses, all was tasty and well presented. Federico would keep trying to give you more. Then there were snacks after every morning and afternoon activity. I don’t think we had the same thing twice and definitely came away a couple of kilos heavier! The crew were very professional and everything was done with care and purpose. The whole boat ran like clockwork, everyone knew their role and couldn’t do enough for you. Our original guide unfortunately had a family emergency 2 hours into our trip but the company found a replacement before we’d started the first activity. Felipe did a great job, was informative and kept us on our toes with a busy schedule. And finally the activities; every day we did combinations of walking, kayaking, snorkelling and boat trips. The days started early at 6am but that just meant we packed more in and beat almost all the other groups to the islands. Everyday we were shattered and in bed by 9pm but that was just because we’d had a great day. I could write reams about the Galápagos itself but there isn’t space, it is truly a spectacular place and incredible how close you can get to unique wildlife. A personal highlight was swimming with sea-lions. All in all we couldn’t recommend Ecuador Green Travel and Tip Top V highly enough. If you’re undecided about which companies to go with you can’t go wrong with these.

MARK PRINCE - UK // TIPTOP V YACHT

Hi Carlos Our recent trip to Galapagos was wonderful I want to express our thanks for your help and patience during the almost two years from our original booking to the actual departure. There were times I thought this trip might never happen. Thanks to you and Green Ecuador it became a reality! We also want to compliment the Seaman yacht crew. The yacht was beautiful and perfect for this type of excursion. All of the crew truly worked together as a team to make the guest experience a great one. As a small business owner for many years I see and appreciate when a team works towards a common goal. Seaman yacht is an exceptionally smooth operation. Our guide Enrique was excellent. He was extremely personable , friendly and knowledgeable. His daily briefings were very well done and provided just the right amount of detail to keep it interesting. His command of English was very impressive and he was always happy and able to answer any questions we had. I should also add that he had no problem getting into the (what turned out to be pretty cool ) ocean water to guide snorkelers twice a day. I think that him being in the water ,plus the very attentive Zodiac pilots, gave the less confident snorkelers more opportunities to see the amazing marine life . The itinerary exceeded my expectations and the specific site selection for the snorkeling was great for all levels of experience . In my personal rating system it is almost impossible to get 5 stars , but this trip was truly 5 STARS. Mark and Linda Conneticut USA

I can strongly recommend Carlos for booking a last minute tour to Galapagos with La Pinta. I had been in contact with a few other agencies before, of which I chose two to get into more detail. But then I emailed Carlos and suddenly I had everything I was looking for: a decent price yes, but most of all: a full understanding what I needed. We had some discussions about the cancellation policy and Carlos was the first and only one who fully understood my problem and who came up with a satisfying solution. So we booked with him. Everything went fine, no problems at all. I would book again with him the next time.

What a fabulous vacation! I could not be happier with our entire trip and the way it was planned and handled. Carlos was very responsive in caring for any questions or concerns I had. We told him what we wanted to see and what our primary goals were and he took care of the rest. We were not disappointed! Our guide Gustavo was tremendous as well, punctual, flexible and accommodating. Gus as we came to call him showed us an Ecuador that we would not have seen on our own. He is very knowledgeable about the country he calls home. As far as our visit to the Galapagos aboard the Nemo lll, it was like the icing on the cake. With only 16 passengers aboard we got to know everyone which was very nice, I'll take that over a large ship any day. The captain, crew and our naturalist Marcos were all amazing. Our daily treks and snorkels were always anticipated and everything was nicely planned out. My son and I had the trip of a lifetime, we made so many memories and we are so glad that we chose Ecuador! In summation, if you are on the fence about visiting this beautiful country, do it! And when you do let Carlos plan it for you and ask for Gustavo, you will not be disappointed:)

CRAIG MESEKE - USA // ECUADOR AND GALAPAGOS TRIP

images/CUENCA4DAYS.png

We had an amazing trip to the coast and Puerto Lopez. Carlos was tremendous in booking our flights and hotels in response to a last minute request and addressing all of questions and responding to our requests. We had an amazing location the first night that allowed us to walk on the malecón in Guaquil(sp) as requested and then when we arrived the next day in Puerto Lopez entered into the most beautiful room on the beach that Carlos had booked for us!! A magical lush garden residence overlooking the ocean. We saw 15 different birds from our room in 15 minutes. The Mandala hotel was PERFECT- a magical beach retreat. The hotel was clearly the realization of an artist's dream. I cannot recommend Mandala, Puerto Lopez, or Carlos more highly. Once you get there - there is so much more to discover, beaches, sea turtle rescue centre, and watching local people bring in their fishing boats all day long. Beautiful!
