We had a wonderful time at Napo! The wildlife viewing was great. Our guides were incredibly friendly, helpful and informative. Thank you Pedro and Favian:) As everything comes in via canoe, it is amazing that they are able to provide such luxe accommodations. Our room was cleaned and freshened twice a day, food was very tasty and good quality. The... More

Many people have written about the lodge and the wildlife viewing. I echo all the positive comments that have been said. We saw 8 species of monkeys, over 56 species of birds, caiman, giant river otters, snakes, frogs, insects, dragons, etc. However, what I want to comment on most is the people. You will not find people who work harder... More

We did the 4 day, 3 night package here and I would thoroughly recommend it. The lodge is beautiful, the food was great, the staff friendly and the guides were incredible at spotting wildlife.

We are a family of 5 with kids 9, 11, and 12. We did the 4 day three night package and paid extra for private guides which gave us a lot of flexibility.

Simply stunning. I was lucky enough to enjoy Napo Wildlife Center as my first stop on a solo Ecuador adventure. It was truly one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

After much research I decided on Napo. I will start by saying that their website does not do this place justice. It is the the furthest lodge off the main Napo river so is incredibly peaceful and beautiful with no motorized boats or roads any place close. The setting is pristine. We have a 9 and an 11 year old... More

On the initial paddle canoe ride (about 2 hours) from the Napo river to the lodge we spotted 5 species of Monkey, a sloth and many birds. Each day I saw something new.

We stayed three nights at this wonderful jungle camp in mid May; what a pity it was not one or two nights longer as we had the most incredible time. This was our first trip to South America, and we started in Quito for a few nights which was great, then flew to Coca for the canoe ride to Napo.... More

The journey to Napo from Coca is worth the trip in itself. This is a great, comfortable, and friendly lodge in the Amazon rainforest with interesting wildlife illuminated by terrific guides. This is NOT the Galapagos, so don't expect close-up/personal wildlife experiences, but this IS a community run operation that meets the standards of any other good quality safari/eco lodge... More
