Napo Wildlife Center - Hotel Coca - Ecuador

The Napo Wildlife Center is located on the Napo River and is about two hours by motor canoe from Coca. As jungle lodges go, Napo Wildlife Center is one of the more deluxe. The center boasts 10 caba├▒as with large, pleasant rooms. Every caba├▒a has a porch, private bath, ceiling fan, and is well-screened to keep insects out. There is a communal area with a library, a bar, and a 50-foot viewing tower for those who wish to do some birding from the lodge itself.

The Napo Wildlife Center is far enough away from "civilization" that it is possible to see many birds and animals: 565 species of bird have been seen in its reserve, and a fortunate tourist can also hope to see monkeys and river otters. It is also near a parrot lick: on a sunny day, hundreds of parrots will visit the lick to get certain nutrients they cannot get elsewhere, making for a memorable experience.

A modern, responsible eco-lodge, nearly 50 percent of the Napo Wildlife Center is owned by the nearby Quichua A├▒argu community, members of which work in the lodge as support staff and guides. The community produces handicrafts such as traditional pottery, which are sold in the lodge, with profits going directly to the artists. Activities included guided hikes, canoe rides, bird -atching tours, night hikes and visits to a local community. Guides are provided by the lodge. Usual stays are Monday-Friday (5-day/4-night) and Friday-Monday (4-day/3-night). These all-inclusive packages include all meals, transportation, park fees, guides, boots, etc. The flight from Quito to Coca, alcoholic beverages, and tips for guides and staff are not included.
