5-DAY DELUXE AMAZON CRUISE ON BOARD M/V ANAKONDA – FROM $2,743

CRUISE SAILS ON WEDNESDAY FROM COCA UNTIL DEC 13, 2017

    During this 5-Day Deluxe Amazon Cruise on Board the M/V Anakonda, enjoy a journey that takes you into the endless heart of biodiversity, which extends its fabulous prism of life throughout the Amazon Basin.

    As detailed below, the very nature of this jungle realm teaches us that the best way to explore it is through a unique means of transportation: by navigating down the river on a fabulous, state-of-the-art vessel set to explore this truly unique environment.

    The inspiring adventure will provide many unexpected, astonishing encounters. We will discover the Yasuní (the largest of Ecuador’s continental National Parks), a wild and untamed realm in the heart of the Ecuadorian Rainforest. We will climb observation towers to enjoy unique perspectives of the forest and explore black water rivers escorted by otters and turtles. We will hike trails learning about the wonderful flora that makes up the eternal green of Ecuadorian Amazonia.

    Day by Day Itinerary: Anakonda Amazon Deluxe Cruise – 5 Days – Wed to Sun

    DAY 1 | WED | Welcome to the Ecuadorian Amazon | D.

    Upon arrival in Coca you will be met by your local host and transferred to the dock, where we will embark on a motorized canoe and navigate down river about one hour, to board the M/V Anakonda. Throughout the journey we have a chance to admire the rainforest landscape and banks of the great Napo River. Immediately after boarding the M/V Anakonda, we continue navigating downstream.

    Guests will have their first opportunities to enjoy the exciting features of our cruise ship: the spacious social areas, comfortable suites, and an observation deck that offers spectacular views. An evening walk is organized after sunset; it gives us the opportunity to discover the forest’s nocturnal activity and listen to the continuous sounds of nature.


    DAY 2 | THU | Border with Peru (The Heart of Yasuní) | B.L.D.

    After a delicious breakfast, we disembark on land for our first daylight up-close-and-personal tropical rainforest experience, where we will learn about the relationship between plants and animals while closely watching out for samples of Amazonia’s fascinating biodiversity at every turn.

    After lunch, the M/V Anakonda navigates to one of the most pristine and little explored sections of Ecuadorian Amazonia, home to the legendary pink river dolphin, black caiman and anaconda. We may also find river turtles and various species of monkeys, as well as the primitive Hoatzin, a one-of-a-kind bird locally known as “the Stinky Turkey”. The only way to actually visit this flooded ecosystem is by canoe, a ride that will reveal the beauty of a lush jungle world.


    DAY 3 | FRI | Meeting the Community-Activities on Board-Island Exploration | B.L.D.

    Breakfast on board. We visit a school located on the banks of the Napo River, where we will have the opportunity to interact with children of the area and learn about the educational system of a remote jungle community in Ecuador.

    We return on board the M/V Anakonda for lunch and a moment to relax while we navigate upstream.  We will offer a lecture and documentary screening, and if time permits, learn about (and make) typical handicrafts of the area. In the afternoon, we explore one of the largest river islands of the Napo River.


    DAY 4 | SAT | Observation Tower – Limoncocha Biological Reserve | B.L.D.

    In the morning after breakfast, visit an observation tower 100-feet high, built against a giant kapok tree. From the top of the tower, we will be blessed with this unique perspective of the forest, looming over the treetops and the greatness of the Amazon Basin.

    In the afternoon, we visit Limoncocha Biological Reserve, a fascinating protected area where more than 478 bird species and several monkey species have been recorded. This activity will extend into the evening, when we will have a chance to spot black caiman with the help of our flashlights. Return to the M/V Anakonda for dinner.


    DAY 5 | SUN | Coca | Home / Next Destination | B.

    In the morning, disembark the M/V Anakonda and transfer by motorized canoe to Coca.

    *NOTE: The detailed itinerary above is a standard model of our operation. We intend to offer everything as planned, but it is important to note depending on technical or operational difficulties beyond our control, the M/V Anakonda Amazon Cruise reserves the right to modify the itinerary without notice.

As we reach Quito’s main square, Independence Plaza, we take a peek inside the Presidential Palace, the main Cathedral, La Compañía Church (considered one of the continent’s most spectacular monumental buildings), San Francisco Church (the oldest in Quito and the largest religious complex in South America), and its spectacular cobblestone square. Around midday, we head north to the Equator to visit the ‘Mitad Del Mundo’ (Middle of the World) monument. You may choose to visit the Ethnographic or Inti-ñan Museums, both located near the monument site, which highlights the particularities of being situated right at the meeting point of two hemispheres, straddling the Equator.
