Much more than a rainforest adventure, our trips provide an unequalled way to experience the natural and ethnic richness of this region. Flocks of parakeets often fly overhead. Orchids and heliconias bloom, adding colour to the overwhelming greenness of the tropical forest. Quichua children run along the shores, marvelling at our white water rafts or motorised canoes and their occupants. Birds are plentiful, Amazon kingfishers, oropendolas, hummingbirds, egrets, parrots, and many more. White water rivers bring us a fun and unique way to explore and learn more about the tropical forest and its inhabitants. We hope you will share in our enthusiasm and join us with minds eager to learn!!
SURTREK´s Isla Amazonica Resort is located in the Upper Amazon basin, in the southeast of Ecuador. It is situated in the midst of magnificent primary jungle, on the shores of the Napo River, with a simply splendid view. The bungalows have been built in keeping with the lush, unique surroundings by using traditional materials from the jungle. This has been done so as to be as unintrusive as possible. When canoeing on the Napo River, it is virtually impossible to see the bungalows since they have been built to blend in completely with the environment. What one does see is the misty past of centuries ago when Orellana, against all human odds, floated blindly down this vast river to discover the Amazon, and months later, still in search of the unknown, came face to face with the Atlantic.
Our place offers you comfortable accommodation, single and double rooms, electricity, hot water, a restaurant, cafeteria, bar and tropical garden.
Your safety and satisfaction are our first priorities. We promote ecological awareness through education. We look after our Ecological Foundation “Cotococha”, which covers an area of 250 hectares of protected forest.
Our packages include interesting day tours, and of course excellent food including international cuisine and typical dishes from the jungle. Our small bar is always open for those wanting an exotic refreshment.
