A trip to Ecuador’s Amazon Rainforest is an incredible adventure that offers so much to those who go there. One of the three major regions of Ecuador, coastal, highland, and rainforest, the Amazon is a bucket list destination for people around the world due to its incredible biodiversity and limitless adventure.
The rainforest is the most diverse ecosystem in the world and new species of plants and animals continue to be discovered as new regions are explored and as different experts come to see what can be found in areas that have already been studied. In Ecuador an important research station is located in Yasuni National Park, where local and international scientists study amphibians, ants, mammals, plants, fungi, and everything in between.
In terms of tourism, the relatively undeveloped areas where people have access offer the adventure of a lifetime, amazing places such as La Selva Amazon Lodge where hundreds of species of birds, amphibians, and reptiles, as well as mammals like monkeys – such as the howler monkey, can be seen from canoes on the river or while walking through the jungle. Depending on the region you visit, there are different tribes of indigenous peoples who often graciously share their culture with visitors who want to really understand this beautiful place.
The guides here are extremely knowledgeable and can share with you biological and historical information along every step of your journey. Much of the touring you will do happens in large canoes on the water, where it is easiest to see wildlife and much easier to get around then on foot in the jungle, but you can expect to hike through parts of the rainforest as well, so that you can truly understand how varied and marvellous this ecosystem is.
