The pink river dolphins are in the Cuyabeno region of the Amazon basin. You will not be swimming with them.

According to locals here, there's not a lot off dolphins in central Cuyabeno region, because there's so much traffic of motorized canoes. Only in Río Aguarico can you see them.

Better are the lower Río Napo, towards the border with Peru, also near Paña Cocha and in the Yasuní national park.

There are different tour operators that can take you there, for example in Misahualli.

It is a by chance situation, unlike seeing many animals in Galapagos. I hope you have lther objectives for seeing Ecuador, and that the dolphins are just an added bonus. Read some of the lodge reviews for different areas, check and see if there might be some correlation to the time of year you plan to go, too. Then give it up to Mother Nature whether it will happen or not. I hope it does for you.
