Anakonda Amazon River Boat

4-8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 3,029

DELUXE | CRUISE: You're invited to travel down the exotic waterways of the Amazon River. Search for red howler monkeys in the rainforest canopy, brave the waters alongside piranha and witness hundreds of parrots lick eroded clay walls. Perhaps best of all, relax in luxury by night while participating in a range of exhilarating and ethical activities by day.

This luxury cruise takes you through the wonders of the Ecuadorian Amazon.

The Anakonda Amazon River Cruise is the only luxury cruise liner in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest. Its 18 suites, each with an area of 215-258 square feet, are equipped with air conditioning and 24-hour electricity, each with a private bathroom with hot water and all necessary amenities. To accommodate families, Anakonda offers four interconnected suites. Passengers can socialize in the dining room, bar, observation deck with an outdoor Jacuzzi, and in the al fresco lounge.

From Quito, fly to Coco and take a motorized canoe down the Amazon to where the Anakonda anchors on the river. As you move down the river, you’ll have the opportunity to witness the majesty of the Amazon. The Amazon Rainforest is the largest rainforest in the world and home to billions of organisms, from the towering canopy trees that sustain the wildlife to the monkeys and parrots that make the jungle so exotic. The Amazon River itself is possibly the longest river in the world and the primary source of water for the Atlantic Ocean.

At Panacocha, hike into the surrounding jungle to search for adorable squirrel monkeys. If you’re brave enough, swim in the waters alongside water monkey fish, white caiman and piranha—don’t believe the movies. Piranha are much less aggressive towards humans than advertised. Further on, you’ll see one of the best sites of the Ecuadorian Amazon: the Parrot clay licks. These eroded clay walls attract hundreds of colourful parrots to them, who lick the clay to digest antacids and antitoxins that counteract some of the dangerous nutrients of their diet.

This luxury cruise down the Ecuadorian Amazon allows you to witness the rainforest’s exotic animals and stunning landscape from the glamourous comforts of the Anakonda.

Day 1

Quito to Yasuni National Park

Afternoon departure from Quito (a short 30-minutes flight) arriving at the city of Coca (Francisco de Orellana). Transfer to the Rio Napo port from where you will journey by motorized canoe downstream (ninety minutes) to board the M/V Anakonda, all the while observing the ever-changing forest-clad riverbanks of the silty-brown headwaters of the Amazon River.

Soon after boarding, the M/V Anakonda will start navigating downstream, a great opportunity for observing from the sundeck the amazing flora and fauna of the region. After dinner, enjoy an optional nocturnal walk into the forest to discover the mysteries of this unique environment and see how life emerges in the dark right before your eyes.
