Anakonda Cruise Standard Suites

Standard suites (14 suites)

Suites and cabins on the Anakonda Amazon River Cruise are groundbreaking in every sense. For some reason, no one ever thought it possible, or even convenient, to bring all the perks of creature comfort to Amazon cruising in Ecuador. The Anakonda now does, offering up to 20 square-meters worth of space to unwind in suites, with private balconies, Jacuzzis, and full-frame panoramic windows that offer you just that much more of the Amazon’s sights and spectacles. But we are always connected to the world via satellite-serviced Wi-Fi internet.

Amazon Canoe Ride

Cruising The Amazon

On board, it is a moment of self-indulgence; it is a retreat amidst the comforts of excellent service, ergonomic facilities and delicious food, a beautiful temporal living space that invites travelers to relax and contemplate the natural world in all its splendor. On land, the experience mutates. We are offered the excitement of adventure, we plunge into one of the most remote corners of our globe, where biodiversity is teeming, where life is incessant, where our interaction with nature brings us closer to it, and where we will feel all the more alive. Conceived as a true overall experience, can only complement the excitement of discovering such a fascinating natural world.

Ecosystems

There are many different types of ecosystems within the Ecuadorian Amazon Basin, and during Anakonda’s comprehensive Amazon tours we will be visiting several. We will explore Amazonian lake systems, flooded Moriche palm forests, terra firme (which is basically hard ground dominated by amazingly tall trees and lush undergrowth), varzea (or seasonally flooded forest, black-water streams and brown-water river islands, and much, much more. Anakonda cruise will take the time to visit different portions of the Amazon River Basin, giving you the best ‘big picture’ available.

Culture & Civilization

Throughout the Amazon, there have existed many different native groups, some having arrived more recently than others. This is the case of the Kichwa communities, which still speak the ancient language of the Inca Empire. During your tour we will be visiting many of these riverside Kichwa settlements that have established themselves centuries ago in the tropical rainforest. Other groups throughout Ecuadorian Amazonia with probably more primitive Amazonian ancestry include the Secoyas, the Sionas, the Cofanes and the Shuar and Achuar communities found further south. Last but not least, we have the Huaorani, an indigenous tribe that was only first contacted in the 1970s, which inhabit deep forest within the Yasuní National Park.

Anakonda Cruise Itineraries 2017

Day 1 - Quito-Coca-Napo River

Departure from Quito. A short 30-minute flight takes us to the frontier town of Coca (Francisco de Orellana) – and transfer to the dock, where we will embark on a motorized canoe and navigate down river about 1 hour, to board the M/V ANAKONDA AMAZON CRUISE. Throughout the journey we have a chance to admire the rainforest landscape and banks of the great Napo River.

Immediately after boarding the M/V Anakonda, we continue navigating downstream. Passengers will have their first opportunities to enjoy the exciting features of our cruise ship: the spacious social areas, comfortable suites, and an observation deck that offers spectacular views. An evening walk is organized after sunset; it gives us the opportunity to discover the forest’s nocturnal activity and listen to the incessant sounds of nature.


Day 2 - Sani Warmi-Observation Tower

We will visit the Sani Warmi Kichwa Interpretation Center, where a group of Kichwa women will speak of their customs, cuisine and everyday life. They have created the center in order to showcase their culture, and it is a unique opportunity to learn about Amazonian lifestyles along the Napo River. You will also have the opportunity to buy crafts, local products and souvenirs.

In the afternoon, visit an observation tower 100-feet high, built against a giant kapok tree. From the top of the tower, we will be blessed with this unique perspective of the forest, looming over the treetops and the greatness of the Amazon Basin.


Day 3 - Yasuni National Park-Yakukawsay

Breakfast on board. During this special walk within the Yasuni National Park, we will seek out the secret to Amazonia’s amazing biodiversity. Our expert naturalist guides will lead us through this veritable Garden of Eden, telling us about the wonders of the floral and faunal communities that make it so special…

After lunch, we will make a stop at the Yakukawsay Kichwa Interpretation Centre, and end with an interesting evening walk through the forest (depending on accessibility, river water levels and weather conditions).


Day 4 - Return

In the morning, disembark the M/V Anakonda and transfer by motorized canoe to Coca (1-hour ride); flight to Quito.

Day 2 - Border With Peru (The Heart of Yasuni)

After a delicious breakfast, we disembark on land for our first daylight close-and-personal tropical rainforest experience, where we will learn about the relationship between plants and animals while closely watching out for samples of Amazonia’s fascinating biodiversity at every turn.

After lunch, the M/V Anakonda navigates to one of the most pristine and little explored sections of Ecuadorian Amazonia, home to the legendary pink river dolphin, black caiman and anaconda. We may also find river turtles and various species of monkeys, as well as the primitive Hoatzin, a one-of-a-kind bird locally known as “the Stinky Turkey”. The only way to actually visit this flooded ecosystem is by canoe, a ride that will reveal the beauty of a lush jungle world.

For our more adventurous passengers, please inquire about our glamping program.


Day 3 - Community-Activtities On Board-Island Exploration

Breakfast on board. We visit a school located on the banks of the Napo River, where we will have the opportunity to interact with children of the area and learn about the educational system of a remote jungle community in Ecuador.

We return on board the M/V Anakonda for lunch and a moment to relax while we navigate upstream. We will offer a lecture and documentary screening, and if time permits, learn about (and make) typical handicrafts of the area. In the afternoon, we explore one of the largest river islands of the Napo River.


Day 4 - Parrot's Clay Lick-Limoncocha Biological Reserve

Breakfast on board. We set out to visit one of the most amazing spectacles this side of western Amazonia known as parrot licks, these unique pools of mud become rich in minerals and attract hundreds of parrots, parakeets and amazons every day. If weather permits, we will have a chance to marvel at this astonishing natural phenomenon. We will also visit a small community arts and crafts shop, an excellent place to find souvenirs to take back.

In the afternoon, we visit Limoncocha Biological Reserve, a fascinating protected area where more than 478 bird species and several monkey species have been recorded. This activity will extend into the evening, when we will have a chance to spot black caiman with the help of our flashlights. Return to the M/V Anakonda for dinner.
