Casa del Suizo Amazon Lodge

It’s easy to forget how close you are to civilisation when surrounded by the perfect wilderness of the Napo River, the Amazon’s largest and most powerful tributary, and its lush, tropical forests. But La Casa del Suizo is accessible by car or bus (with a secure carpark to leave your vehicle) around three and a half hours from Quito, followed by an easy 20-minute ride on motorized canoe.

Day 1: Quito – Jungle Lodge (L D)

Depart from Quito to the east for a five-hour drive climbing the Andes at around four thousand meters to descend into the Amazon basin crossing extended valleys and lush green forests to arrive at the lodge in the afternoon. Upon arrival, take some time to relax, breathe the jungle breeze and explore the quarters. Take an optional night hike to explore the depths of nature.

Visit “AmaZoonico”, an animal rescue center in which numerous species are tended to, including toucans, a variety of colorful parrots, monkeys, jaguars, capybaras and much more.
