We had the most amazing experience from start to finish and the Anakonda was the perfect place to stay and experience the river!
The Anakonda is beautiful - our cabin had a comfortable bed, small private balcony and bathroom with both a tub (by the window looking out on to the river Napo) and a shower. The room was cleaned and freshened up multiple times a day!
Our guide, Avel, is a professional and an expert and has the eyes of a hawk!
We went on night jungle walks where we saw lots of snakes, spiders, frogs, capybara.
During the day, on our canoe rides which took us into the smaller tributaries and narrow creeks, we spotted beautiful butterflies, birds, river otters, marmots, sloths and monkeys. We fished for Piranha! Kayaked! It was heaven! The parrot clay lick was a real highlight and absolutely worth the early rise! We did not see another tourist for days!
After each outing and upon return to the Anakonda we were greeted each time with fresh juice, clean towels and very good food. Jefferson, the barman, made great cocktails in the evenings! We tried new things such as a Caipirinha made with Caña Manabita, an Ecuadorean liquor made from sugar cane.
Esteban, the director of the boat and the Captain, Alexis, are consummate professionals with a great focus on the safety and comfort of the guests. (Lifejackets were mandatory on the canoe at all times).
Shout-outs too to Emilio, our canoe captain, and Juan Carlo and Nellie.

This was a vacation in a million.

First, we were to be on the Manatee, which has balconies. WHEN WE ARRIVED they said sorry, you're on the Anakonda w/no balconies. Second, we spent THREE or our 5 days (really 4.5 because we had to leave so early on the 5th day) tied up, no cruising at all, so might as well been at a lodge (where most likely we would have seen much more wildlife) The crusing we did do was down the Napo a bit and then BACK up to pick up another group of passengers. They told us this was because the river was too shallow. OK, fine but there should have been some warning that this might happen. The crew is lovely, housekeeping is outstanding, food is fair. Excursions yielded 2 sightings of monkeys far off, a momentary glimpse of the river dolphin, a few birds and that's it. No sloths, capyberas, otters, snakes, poison dart frogs, armadillos or anything else in this "most bio-diverse" place. We spent 2.5 hr on day one sitting in silence in a pavillion waiting for parrots to come to the clay lick. NOT WORTH 2 hrs!!!! I uess the wildlife is not really their fault but from the adverts it looks like it will be everywhere. It is not. No safety protocols on excursions, our guide didn't even have a radio. A one point the boat didn't come back to get us and we sat in the dark on the shore while our guide tried to signal main boat w/ a laser pointer. This was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime. It was not.

Please do yourself a favor and read this review. This company perhaps was good in the past but we just came back from this river "cruise"... April 2022. This is not a cruise but a floating hotel. They sold us a 4 night / 5 day cruise to Peruvian border. Instead of cruising to the border we were stuck in place since they sold conflicting iteneraries / overlapping days to 3 other couples. One started 4 days before us and were on a 8 day "cruise", another embarked on a 3 day "cruise" a day before we did embark on our 4 day "cruise" and then one more couple joined 3 days after we did for another 4 day "cruise". well - because they booked 4 couples for totally different iteneraries and different start times, they couldnt move at all. We were floating in place and forced to go on a bumpy multi hours daily "tours" on motor boats - exhausting, nauseating and redundunt. Most time was spent on these horrid boats which left minimal time to view wildlife. We saw very few animals. Didnt see even one pirahna. Pink dolphns seem to be a myth. This boat was floating not too far from Coca - dirty yellow Amazon, lots of oil vessels and not much more. Peruvian border is supposed to be the most biodiverse place on Amazon. Sadly, we would never know... We wasted $8K and, most upsetting is a fact we wasted our vacation.This is a premeditated fraud, stay away!

Der Napo River ist die Hauptverkehrsstraße im Urwald. Rechts und links des Flusses kann man einen ersten Eindruck vom Urwald bekommen. Viele Lodges, Dörfer und Tierbeobachtungsmöglichkeiten befinden sich in Flussnähe.

Il Rio Napo è stato uno dei primi affluenti del Rio delle Amazzoni scoperto perché in gran parte navigabile almeno con canoe e piccole imbarcazioni. Abbiamo fatto una escursione sul fiume con una barca lunga e i panorami offerti dalla natura sulle rive meritano l’esperienza. Abbiamo anche incontrato dei cercatori d’oro che operavano all’antica. Curioso.

We travelled from Coca down stream to the Nap Wildlife Centre - very comfortable travel. From the Wildlife Centre we journeyed daily along the river foreshores

We took the 4 day amazon cruise on the Anakonda. I believe it has 14 rooms, but when we went in June, there were only us (a family of 5) and another family of 5 with the ship to ourselves. All the rooms are suites and well appointed! The Deluxe suites have about 100 sq ft of space with a bathtub, but the regular suites are just as good since most of the time is spent on excursions or on deck.

The crew is OUTSTANDING!

Housekeeping: Probably the best there is in the global industry. Every detail is covered. Local flavored chocolates left on our beds every night and a cleaning that seemed like 3x a day. They come in the morning after you eat breakfast and leave on your excursion. Then they come while you are at dinner to turn town and refresh. The ship was impeccably clean.

Food: Can you say Michelin star rating? The presentation to the variety of food brought comfort and local flavor insuring nobody left a meal hungry. No ask was too small.

The Crew: Lead by Esteban and the Captain, they couldn't have been more professional, accommodating and hospitable. We truly felt like royalty as they attended to our every need and wish! Allen, the bartender, seemed just a few feet away to ask for your favorite adult beverage!

The Naturalists: We had Diego for our trip and he was incredible. He was able to find animals that we wouldn't have seen right in front of our faces. His knowledge of the flora and fauna were exceptional. The personal experience having your own naturalist take you through the Amazon is unmatched!

4 days seemed too short! The 7 day cruise may have been better, but we found time to enjoy the Jacuzzi on the top deck enjoying adult beverages and looking at the stars shining from the middle of the earth.

5 stars for the Anakonda and it's crew as they spoil you down the Napo river!

We spent 4 days at Napo Wildlife Center and our high expectations were surpassed! The lodge and dwellings are hand made by a staff carpenter out of local wood, the cook and staff, the native guides, the wait staff are all professional and pleasant. At the end of our trip All the staff, from cleaning staff, to cooks and professional guides were presented and thanked by the manager in front of all the guests. We learned a lot about the amazon and about this hard working Anangu community.

We spent 4 days on this luxury boat - the Anaconda, on the Ecuadorian Napo river, a tributary to the Amazon. My friends and I were thrilled with this experience. I don't see reviews of this boat here. It is a small boat, I think of it as almost a private cruise. The boat hosts 16 guests. There were 9 of us on this trip. And it was an outstanding experience. We first came across the Napo Wildlife Lodge, also a luxury lodge. But our travel agent (And Beyond) offered either the lodge or the cruise. We chose the cruise and we were thrilled. The boat is actually quite large. It is luxury. There are 11 cruise staff all servicing the 9 of us. The food was outstanding. Let me repeat - the food was outstanding. One of my friends was following a vegan diet. The other one was gluten free. The chef flawlessly catered to both of them without exception. They had special meals prepared just for them at lunch and dinner and these meals were prepared with thought and variety.

Our guides, two of them, naturalists were excellent. We couldn't be happier. It was a very active cruise. We had an activity in the morning and the afternoon every day. We were on walks, including a night walk, we visited the local communities, the canopy walk, we were on motorized canoes. We fed pink dolphins. We drove to where the Napo river crosses into Peru and meet with another Ecuadorian river; we visited lakes...
We really enjoyed the biodiversity of the Napo/Amazon basin. We learned about local communities live off the land. We saw Scarlet Macaws, monkeys, all sorts of other birds and animal life, plants, trees etc. We loved this.

We were on the Anakonda boat and stopped at several places along the Napo River. We really enjoyed it. It's not something you can do in just one day. I recommend the Anakonda!
