PROGRAMS

This is a sample itinerary, subject to change due to weather conditions, security, and the particular interests of guests and groups. Changes and additions are made to maximize wildlife and landscape enjoyment, cultural interaction with local people, and as much time as possible in the richest rainforest in Ecuador: Yasuní National Park. Please consult us for tailor-made itineraries for a unique wildlife experience at the best Lodge in the Amazon: Napo Wildlife Center.

PREMIUN PROGRAM 

4 DAYS / 3 NIGHTS

Our 4 days – 3 nights premium tour includes canoe trips along lakes and rivers, forest excursions, and birding tours. Experience an incredible adventure paddling a small canoe on a tranquil stream, or hike on one of the 16 forest trails. Get a close-up view of the spectacular wildlife living in Yasuní National Park, a sacred land known as one of the most diverse regions on the planet.

DAY 1

Departing from Quito, a 30 minute flight to Coca will bring you over the eastern Andes mountain range. After landing during the mid-morning, a 5 min transfer will take you to “La Mision” Port, where you will embark on a comfortable covered motor-boat. Here we will ride along the Napo River for about 2 hours while enjoying a box lunch and coffee, which is provided en route.

Along the way, you will have opportunities to spot birds like herons, kingfishers, and others. After arriving at Napo Wildlife Center’s entry dock, we disembark for a short break and to visit the restroom. Next, we take you on a majestic and peaceful 2 hour paddle canoe ride surrounded by trees and wildlife, paddling along a narrow creek that connects to the lake where the lodge is located.

There will be chances to see some species of monkeys as well as large birds like toucans, parrots, or even macaws. A late afternoon arrival to Napo Wildlife Center with an overwhelming view of the Añangu Lake will be accompanied by a welcome drink followed by a briefing from the local manager.

DAY 2

Wake up for an early breakfast and an early start to reach the most accessible parrot clay licks in Ecuador, about 1 hour away from the lodge. Guests reach this destination just before parrot activity kicks off at the clay lick between 7:30 to 8:30am to ensure the best viewing experience. A total of 11 species of parrots, parakeets, and macaws can be seen on a daily basis. Many other animals also visit on a less frequent basis.

Later, hike along a forest trail to visit the Kichwa Community of Añangu and share time with a family on one of their many activities. Enjoy lunch at Napo Cultural Center, where you share with people of the Kichwa community.

Then return to the creek and hike through a Terra Firme Forest for about 30 minutes until we arrive at the second parrot clay lick. If the weather conditions permit, we will be able to find different species of parrots, parakeets, and even macaws.

When you arrive back at the lodge during the late afternoon or early evening, a delicious dinner will be awaiting you.

DAY 3

After another early breakfast, we leave the lodge to experience an amazing view of the rainforest from a 36 meter tall canopy tower, a great way to see the hustle and bustle of life above ground-level. This is the second tower at the Napo Wildlife Center, located about 30 minutes from the lodge deep within the Terra Firme forest. As you ascend the 12-floor tower, you pass through different levels of the forest and emerge at the top of a huge Ceiba tree.

Flocks of colorful tanagers pass right through the canopy of the tree. Blue-and-yellow macaws fly past while, in nearby trees, adorable spider monkeys search for fruit. Two species of large toucans call in the early mornings and afternoons, and the life of the forest canopy is laid out before you. Birds that are virtually impossible to see from the forest floor far below are suddenly right beside you, usually oblivious to your presence. The canopy tower opens a whole new world to guests of the Napo Wildlife Center!

Lunch is served at the lodge. Your afternoon can include discovering another Terra Firme trail, where we hike along primary forest to see the forest interior, possibilities of finding lizards, colorful manakins, or the unique and endemic Golden-mantled tamarin monkey. After the hike, explore the lake and creeks in a dugout canoe and enjoy a likely chance meeting with our local Giant otter family on the way.

DAY 4

Your last day will entail an early departure and final 2 hour excursion canoeing back to the Napo River. The creek may reveal new sights of giant otters, monk saki monkeys, and rare birds along the way. Once we have reached the river, you will transfer to the motorized canoe to return the way you came. You will arrive in Coca after an approximately 2 hour boat ride in order to check-in for your Coca – Quito flight. Precise schedule to be announced according to departure details and arrangements.

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!
