Most people don’t know this, but Ecuadorian Amazon region is the one of the easiest and accessible to reach. A forty-five-minute flight from the capital Quito brings you to the steamy port town of Coca. From where several excellent lodges are just a canoe ride away. However, one of the most immerseive ways to see the Amazon is by boat. Nothing quite evokes that feeling of a bygone era of travel that cruising through the Amazon and on board the Anakonda you can do it in serious luxury.
The Anakonda is the only luxury ship cruising the waterways of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Built for comfortable adventure cruising, the suites are equipped with modern facilities and panoramic windows from which guests can enjoy extraordinary views of the sunrise and sunset. Other features on board include an observation deck, outdoor Jacuzzi, al fresco lounge and an excellent dining room offering fine cuisine and a variety of wine.
You won’t be spending all your time on board – much of the time will be spent on land exploring the rainforest. Venture out on dug-out canoes through the flooded forest and smaller tributaries, hike the trails, and meet and interact with the region’s 15 local communities. For keen birdwatchers there are over 500 species to discover. Guests can also enjoy close encounters with tapirs, macaws, giant ottters, sloths, monkeys, piranhas and of course, anacondas which inspired the name of the boat.
