The Manatee Amazon Explorer provides a comfortable way to explore the interior of the Ecuadorian Amazon basin. Recently, we spent four days on the Manatee Amazon Explorer. The trip begins with a flight into Coca, then an hour and half trip in an open boat down the Napo River to where you meet up with the Manatee. The boat is an amazing refuge in the midst of the Amazon rain forest. With a dozen two person staterooms and a couple of larger ones, each with its own shower and bath, it provides comfortable accommodations while providing access to various refuges, national parks, and wildlife centers along the river. Typical days involve transferring to small canoes for trips up small rivers and lakes, hikes through the rain forest, and sometimes nighttime hikes or canoe trips through the forest. Sightings include many exotic birds, parrots, bats, insects, frogs, snakes, and caymans. Back on board, the meals, served in a spacious dining room, are fantastic. A large lounge and bar area also doubles as a theater and lecture hall to review the day's sightings and photos. Our English speaking guide showed care and concern not only for us but for each and every tiny critter of the rain forest. The boat manager and his crew could not have been more helpful. The rain forest is hot, humid, and sometimes it even rains. After a long day of exploring the rivers and trails, hot showers, good food, and an air conditioned stateroom were a welcome relief.

The Manatee it is an excelent river cruise, you visit indigenous communities, they help the people in the Amazon of Ecuador.
The most important thing it is that you cruise to 4 protected areas: Yasuni National Park, Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve, Pañacocha Biological Corridor and the Limoncocha Biological Reserve, where you can see a lot of fauna, flora and indigenous people and at the same time help protect the Amazon Basin
