After a short flight we arrived in Coca, on the Rio Napo, a tributary of the Amazon River. The new bridge is prettier than the town, essentially built to supply the oil industry. We boarded a motorized canoe for the three hour trip to our destination in the jungle.
Our lunch was served in these baskets which looked better than the lunch.
Our canoe stopped to let off some locals at their village. We eventually stopped at a similar dock, then walked for half an hour through the jungle across an island on a very narrow raised corduroy road. which was slippery from a recent rain.
We then boarded a paddle type canoe for the final voyage along the river and lagoon to the hotel.
The lodge from the lagoon.
After dinner we made another trip around the lagoon looking for night animals.
All the rooms were in individual lodges.
The dining room on the top floor
And a bar of course.
Living room. There was another living room below this one and stairs from this one to a bird watching deck above.
Our lodge with a bedroom with double beds, a bedroom with a king size bed, a huge bathroom and a deck with a jacuzzi tub. Roughing it in the jungle for sure.
