Amazon Tours and Cruises in Ecuador
There are several areas for amazon tours in Ecuador. The Amazon river cruises and most Amazon rain forest tours are accessed via Coca, though there are also a few options north and south of there. The ones in the south, accessed via Tena, are not as remote, so in general, you can't expect to see as much wildlife there.
Guests visiting the Yasuni National Park (where the Napo Wildlife Center, Napo Cultural Center, M/V Anakonda and M/V Manatee operate), must now present their full COVID-19 vaccination card or a PCR-negative test result of no more than 72 hours (before arrival at Coca Airport). You only need to send the above to your agent, and they will do the rest.
*The above requirement does not apply when staying at Sacha Lodge, as it is not inside the Yasuni National Park.
*No other place in mainland Ecuador requires negative test results for admission, except for Mashpi Lodge, , where guests may present the same vaccination card/test results, used for entering Ecuador.

"All went very smoothly and was great. Our guides and transportation were excellent. We enjoyed our cruise on the Manatee Explorer, Sacha Lodge and the Hacienda. All of the arrangements you made for us were perfectly executed. I would highly recommend the cruise to people! Thank you for your assistance in creating a memorable holiday for my niece and I."
