Amazon River Cruises & Rainforest Expeditions

We take a morning flight out of Quito to the frontier town of Coca, officially named Francisco de Orellana in honor of the explorer who discovered the Amazon River in 1542.  We then travel approximately 2 hours by motorized canoe to board the Manatee Amazon Explorer and begin our exciting Amazonian adventure.
