Arrival to the Amazon Lodge in the afternoon, after the long drive we can relax in our bungalow surrounded by the sounds of the Ecuadorian rainforest. Our Lodge’s Administrator serves a very special welcome drink while sitting around the open fireplace to coordinate and discuss next day’s activities with our crew, plus an introductory speech about the Cotococha Amazon Jungle Lodge and its surroundings. We will then enjoy a tasty dinner prepared by our chefs.

After breakfast, we depart by canoe upstream for ten minutes, arriving to a small shore where after our short walk, we'll find ourselves in a breathtaking cascade "Las Latas" where we will take a refreshing bath in its clear crystal waters and enjoy the surrounding views of the rainforest, which mixed with the jungle sounds, makes it an unforgettable experience. We return to have lunch at the Cotococha ecolodge. Later we put on our "wet gear" to start an exciting walk in the jungle ready to find the secret wonders of the mysterious hidden forest.
