When planning our trip, I had to decide between Brazil, Peru and Ecuador for our Amazon rainforest expedition. I’m really glad I chose Ecuador. And more importantly, Napo Wildlife Center was an excellent experience. One thing to consider is that Napo is on land that is owned by the local community of indigenous people. Most of the staff is from...

We spent a lot of time reading reviews before choosing Napo--and all the reasons quoted by others were completely accurate such as great staff, the feeling of a hard working community proud of their project, outstanding guides and lovely location but we missed reading what may be one of the prime facts. One of main decisions was to preserve the...

Every moment was full of wonder and adventure. Knowledgeable guides and customer-centric service could not be surpassed. I just had to keep pinching myself the whole time - yes, I am really in the Amazon rainforest, and it's really what I expected - plus more! I would go again in a flash! Except the toilet paper issue ... but I...

This is a quality operation and a special place, worth the travel. Would have liked it a little better with more physical activity, since observing the wildlife was mostly sedentary. But overall, I'm very glad that we included Napo in our vacation plans.

We spent 4 days / 3 nights at NWC and it was terrific. The trip to get there is a little long, 2+ hours on a motorized canoe with very comfortable seats, then 2+ hours in a paddled canoe with your guide up a small creek which leads to the NWC which is on a beautiful lake. The paddle in...

We had been to an ecolodge in the Amazon before, but this one tops them all. So much wildlife and the sounds make you think it is getting piped in, but it is actually real. The staff are attentive, kind, and extremely knowledgable. You do have to travel a ways to get there, worth it, but it's a distance. It...
