We hired a tour driver from Quito to take us to Cotococha which was a nice journey through the mountains to the jungle.
The lodge is in a great setting next to the Napa river in the jungle. Our lodge was very spacious with more...More

We wanted an Amazon experience without the extra travel time many lodges require. Tena is easily reached by bus from Quito & the lodge is just 30 min. by bus from Tena (or 20 min. by taxi). But our experience was just as rich as...More
The rooms are spacious, peaceful and tastefully decorated. Ours (14) had river frontage, although not all do. The common areas are pleasant and the staff are welcoming. However, the bar and restaurant definitely do not live up to the expectations of a high end lodge,...More

Hello. We did not book the adventure package. We just did the standard package, so we did not do white water rafting. We ended up doing everything they stated on the itinerary. The scheduling of the trips depends on the weather. An overnight rain kept us from doing the waterfall hike in the morning, so they rearranged other trips to do that in the afternoon after the trail dried a little.
We paid in full prior to arrival. I don't recall if we had to pay the extra 5%, I think if you pay by credit card you might be charged a foreign transaction fee. Other payment methods may not require that fee. Bring cash because I don't think they accept credit cards at the lodge. However, that would only be for beverages.
We did not take public transportation. The lodge arranged for a private car service. No issues with the luggage and we felt safe at all times. Everyone was very friendly and just about everyone spoke English. Good luck.
