If your bucket list includes visiting the Amazon rainforest, you should definitely start with its Ecuadorian part. Here’s why.
The Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest is the most biodiverse place on the planet. There are more than 1100 tree species, and its outstanding fauna includes 382 species of fish, over 200 mammal species, 150 amphibian species, 121 species of reptiles, and over 596 types of birds, which makes it a true paradise for birdwatchers.
If you go to the rainforest in Ecuador, you should definitely visit one (or all!) of its four national parks: Yasuni, Cayambe Coca, Llanganates, and Sumaco Napo-Galeras, where you’ll have an opportunity to enjoy the idyllic tranquility of the rainforest and meet its stunning fauna.
Wonderful Indigenous Cultures
The Amazon rainforest in Ecuador has 9 indigenous cultures. It’s a fascinating experience meeting the local indigenous communities, exploring their wonderful cultures and learning about all their traditions. You shouldn’t miss such a fantastic opportunity, as it will provide you with an unforgettable experience.
Not only does the rainforest offer quite a lot of adventures in itself, but you can also take lots of exciting tours to explore all its hidden gems with local guides and really feel the wild nature around you. The weather is pretty unpredictable, as hot sunshine easily turns into a tropical storm, but don’t let that stop you! The moment you get there, you’ll undoubtedly find that you actually love all the shows the rainforest puts on.
What’s also incredibly exciting is the way you get there. You can’t take a car ride and find yourself in the middle of the rainforest. You’d probably take a boat ride, trek for a while, and then hop into a canoe through the gorgeous jungle to get to your lodge before you start exploring it all. Truly adventurous!
