The 4 hour trip to get there was fascinating, 2 hours by motor boat, 2 hours on a dug out canoe, our Naturalist guide pointed out all the flora ,fuana ,birds monkeys etc, just being in the Rainforest was a great experience, during the day ,very quite, at night a symphony of noise.
The Napo center was outstanding, our thatched hut had a comfortable bed, with netting, no a/c,locks on doors, tv ,actually could sleep 3, 2 beds the food was excellent,wake up call at 5 am took a little getting used to. our guide Luis, was fabulous..all in all a first rate experience, for the adventure traveler.
