The best way to explore the Ecuadorian Amazon and travel to the heart of its biodiversity is through a unique means of transportation: the M/V Anakonda Amazon Cruises that offers comfort aboard a modern ship.
You can also enjoy this unique environment by walking through green paths and learn about the wonderful flora and fauna of the Amazon.
