HOW TO BOOK A TOUR?

Our programs are rather customized and we try to accommodate the travel needs of our customers. To avoid misunderstandings, we don't offer a prepaid travel option. Just send an email to or contact us through our contact data below. 

 

From Abroad:

Sending money from abroad is rather costly and we try to minimize money going to bank transfers. Once your schedule has been worked out, we kindly request you to make a reservation guarantee transfer of only $100 by Western Union or Moneygram. The balance you pay in CASH in Quito upon arrival (we don't take credit cards!) This way you don't lose a lot of money sending money. The $100 is NOT recoverable upon cancelation.

 

Why we don't accept credit cards in Ecuador either? The credit card services charge 7%! We would have to charge you for that, making your trip more expensive. We do everything to make your trip as cost effective as possible.

 

Already in Ecuador?

You can pay in our office mentioned below. We apply a cancelation fee of $100.

 

What is essential to bring?

CUYABENO, GETTING THERE AND BACK

There are 3 options to travel to the Amazon Lowlands:

  • Take the night bus from Quito to Lagoagrio (it usually leaves at 11 pm) from the “Terminal Norte" in Quito and arrives in Lagoagrio at dawn, taking about 7 hours. It costs about $50 for the round trip return. You have to leave from your hotel in Quito one hour before departure to the terminal. Alternatively, you can take a day bus, but then you will have to spend the night in Lagoagrio. We look for you in Lagoagrio in combination with the arriving passengers by plane, leaving generally at 10:30 a.m. (depending on the arrival of the plane), to Nuevo Unión (2 hours), where we board our canoe at around 12:30 p.m. night at 10 pm until disembarking, it will be more or less 14.5 hours. The same applies for the Lake Cuyabeno accommodations which pass through the main park entrance on the Cuyabeno River.

  • Fly Quito - Lagoagrio with flights every Monday and Friday. It costs about $100 per flight, but additionally you have to consider the cost of the taxi from your hotel in Quito to the airport, which costs 2X25; So it effectively costs $250. Your flight usually leaves at 9 in the morning, and it takes 30 minutes to arrive. As the departure is often delayed, it is better to assume arrival at 10, and after receiving your luggage, it will be 10:30. We look for you at the airport. From there it takes two hours to arrive in Nuevo Unión, where we leave in our canoe at 12:30. Thus flying it takes a total of 5.5 hours from your hotel until you can embark on the Aguarico River.

  • There are also daily flights with LATAM or Regional Lines to the city of Coca. From there you can take our private transport to Lagoagrio or El Unión which takes about 3.5 hours.

  • Take our Private Trans-Andean Transportation to the Aguarico or Cuyabeno River, of which you can read the details below. We will pick you up at your hotel early in the morning and take to the Aguarico River in about 8 - 9 hours depending how much time we spend on the way at the overlooks into the Cayambe _ Coca Ecological, , the San Rafael Falls, the Reventador Volcano and the Papallacta spas. The same applies for the Lake Cuyabeno accommodations which pass through the main park entrance on the Cuyabeno River. The same applies for the Lake Cuyabeno accommodations which pass through the main park entrance on the Cuyabeno River.

PRIVATE TRANSPORTATION QUITO - AGUARICO

 

some of the highest rainforests in the world along Lake Papallacta.The San Rafael waterfall surrounded by virgin cloud forest is the most beautiful waterfall of the country.

Near the mountain pass you pass by beautiful paramos and some of the highest rainforests in the world along Lake Papallacta.

The San Rafael waterfall surrounded by virgin cloud forest is the most beautiful waterfall of the country.

 

Bordering Lake Papallacta is the Jamanco SpaThe Reventador is Ecuador's most active volcano

Bordering Lake Papallacta is the Jamanco Spa with great mineral water without prior filtration as done in the Papallacta resorts. As a result, the mineral quality is supposed to be better, while resort prices are a fraction of the spas in Papallacta.

The Reventador is Ecuador's most active volcano and frequently runs of down-pouring can be seen glowing in the night.

  • It is possible to arrange for spending the night at either a Papallacta (costly) or Jamanco (friendly and much more economical) Spa, but then another day is needed.

  • Many passengers who take the private transportation, chose to fly back or visa versa.

Lagoagrio airport.the Cayambe exactly on the equator

Arrival at the airport of oil-boom town Lagoagrio.

On a clear day you can see the Cayambe exactly on the equator, as you fly around it. It is the only major volcano as well as the only glacier in the world precisely on the equator. On the way in, chose a window on the right and on the way back on the left of the plane.
