Beginner Rafting – Class II

The family rafting experience in the Anzu river is perfect for beginners as no experience is needed at all, making it the best introductory contact with white water rivers for people that do
not have much practice at swimming or kids that are just learning. The easy rapids and stretches of calm water allow the adventurer to jump off the boat at any time and swim around
as much as they want to, the jungle scenery seen throughout the entire trip is beautiful and there is no dangerous wildlife around or inside the river, on the contrary, this river is widely
known as one of the best birdwatching spots. Kayaking experts in safety kayaks accompany us in our journey down the Anzu River at all times in case of an emergency. Includes lunch,
shuttle, pictures and you can even bring your pet in the boat! Duration is 5 hours and 30 minutes.

Advanced Rafting – Class III

You will have a box lunch on the go. Activity duration (9:00 am – 5:00 pm).
The half-day in the Jatun Yaku is the best option if you don’t have much time but still wanna experience rafting and live an adrenaline-fueled adventure in a beautiful river. The Jatun Yacu
is a Class III river thus its rapids are safely challenging and a lot of fun, despite being a short trip it will be filled with stunning jungle scenery, birds chirping and a horizon full of mountains
that will make of this an unforgettable journey. Includes shuttle and pictures and the duration is 4 hours and 30 minutes.

Visit the Shaman

Get ready for something completely out of the ordinary and an unforgettable experience, you will visit the Shaman for a cleansing! (3:30 – 4:30 pm) Contrary to the common beliefs shaman cleansing rituals are not about having a spiritual guide drive off evil energies. Instead, the shaman is nothing but a mere assistant in our own cleansing, one who acts as a bridge between the person who wants to be cleansed and the spiritual world where the power for cleansing our souls lies. Therefore, the clients are the ones cleansing themselves albeit with the necessary help and guidance of the shaman who makes use of smoke and different plants in order to help us focus in the aspects of oneself that we want to improve.

Huaysa Yaku Waterfall

The Huaysa Yaku natural pools are a gem in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest, freshwater streams are perfect for bathing and relaxing after the hike. These pools are located at the end of the road to El Cando, it includes four natural pools, one more beautiful than the others. As soon as you arrive here, you will be able to see the final pool and waterfall that flows into the great Jatun Yaku river. Here you will have plenty of places to sample local food and buy drinks so you only need to bring your shoes and swimming gear.

Latas Waterfall

This is a recommended trip for all levels of adventure, ideal for the entire family, small kids, teenagers, and adults. The waterfall is located 12km from Tena it is accessible from the road to Misahualli. There are two options, a 15 min walk through the forest that ends in a waterfall with crystal-clear water ideal for refreshing in a sunny day, or, a 30 min walk for adventurers that love hiking in the jungle, similarly, it ends in a beautiful waterfall.

AmaZoonico Visit

Amazoonico Animal Reserve, the reserve has its own guides, at the entrance they have a small retail shop with a lot of local products, by buying these products you can help the operation of the NGO run by volunteers. A guide will take you on a stroll along their reserve while they tell you stories specific to each and every one of the animals that live there, a lot of which are victims or illegal animal trade, a very soul touching experience. This is not a zoo as some animals roam around freely, only the ones that have to be in cages are.
