NAPO RIVER, ECUADOR
Breakfast at Leisure in Hotel
Enjoy a delicious breakfast at your leisure before your flight to the Amazon Basin city of Coca.
Travel into the Amazon Basin
Hop aboard a private motor coach and be driven to the airport for a short flight to the city of Coca. There, be introduced to local-style water travel—a motorized canoe! Head across the water to a refined riverboat called the Anakonda, which will be your home for the next 4 nights.
Settle into the Anakonda
Explore this finely appointed vessel with 3 levels, an observation deck, multiple sitting areas, outdoor whirlpool spa and an al fresco lounge.
Stroll the decks or find a nook to view the surroundings and relax with fellow Adventurers. As the Anakonda navigates the river, there are plenty of rewards for those with a keen eye.
Share your excitement and get to know your fellow Adventurers as you dine on delightful fare and toast to your first night in the Amazon region.
