Ecuador’s small size is juxtaposed by its astounding variety of terrain and the incredible diversity of wildlife that lives within its borders. Along the Napo River, between Coca and the Peruvian border, is the deep jungle; one of the most bio-diverse places on the planet to go on Amazon tours in Ecuador.
In Yasuni National Park, a 3,800 square mile swath of primary forest a few hours south from Coca- there are over 500 kinds of birds, 200 different mammals, and more than 100 species of reptiles. Happy Gringo works with lodges in the area- including Sani, Napo Wildlife Center, and Sacha that offer once in a lifetime treks to see the creatures that live under the canopy.
