My husband and I stayed at Napo April 2013 for our 9th wedding anniversary then traveled to Quito and Galapagos. The stay at Napo was a wonderful experience. We felt safe the entire time although there is no lock on the door or windows. We are nature lovers and we got guides who showed us animals and birds we would never have seen on our own. We saw 59 different species including caiman, otters, electric eel, 5 types of monkeys, herons, parrots and many other birds, frogs and snakes. I was in awe of the beauty of nature all around us and so thankful to get to see it all. The rooms were very cool with a view of the lake, the food was great. I am a vegetarian and they made me special food every time. The staff were very nice and helped us out with any need we might have. I would love to return. If you are lucky enough to go to this area it is worth the effort. Someday this beautiful part of nature could be extinct it is best to see it now in its full glory!
