An immense green ocean is what Ecuador’s Amazon rainforest looks like from the air. These are the domains of 100 meter-tall kapok or ficus trees, myriads of flowers, amazing orchids and bromeliads. This is the habitat of thousands of species of birds, insects, reptiles, amphibians and mammals and the domain of majestic tributaries of the Amazon, as well as hundreds of smaller rivers, creeks and fascinating lagoons of all sizes, one hosting more amazing natural surprises than the next.
Around the corner of some of these waterways you may be stunned by the presence of the mysterious pink river dolphins. You will marvel at the flight of dazzling bright blue morpho butterflies, colorful and noisy parakeets and macaws. Laugh at the antics performed high in the canopy by dozens of species of monkeys.
This is one of the earth’s hot spots of biological diversity which attracts nature oriented tourists and visitors just as much as it does to scientists and explorers. This is the perfect venue to discover, to learn and to respect the wonders of nature. Of premier importance are also the ethnic cultures that have inhabited in these remote and secluded jungles for centuries.
