We stayed in a suite (no 16) at NAPO for 3 nights. The place is beautiful and the food is amazing! Best food we had in Ecuador! We were on day trips with a guide and a native the two days, which was great. Be aware though that you have a fair amount of free time, so bring a book!...

We visited the Napo Wildlife Center prior to our stay in the Galapagos Islands. I'm so glad we added time in the rainforest to our vacation. We saw so many different bird, reptile and monkey species. The guides and naturalists are experts in bringing guests close to the animals in the Yasuni National Park. The food was deliciously prepared and...

Our trip was all about visiting the Galapagos with a trip to the Amazon basin added to make the long journey more worthwhile - our 3 nights at Napo ended up being the highlight of our trip.

We have just returned from two weeks bird watching in Ecuador during which we stayed at NWC in the Amazon rain forest for five days/four nights.

We cannot reccomend this wonderful place enough- go, and go for a decent length of time. We spent 6 days here and could have stayed several more.

Napo Wildlife Center is an amazing place. You arrive In Coca after a flight from Quito to a comfortable welcome by Napo staff and a short bus ride to the boat landing. There you are given a snack and orientation before departing on a loooong canoe with 2-100 hp Yamahas on the back. Seating is one on each side of...
