 THINGS TO DO [AMAZON ACTIVITIES]

The pure and crystal waters of the Amazon's turbulent rivers provide fantastic conditions for rafting and kayaking, two of the region's most popular sports. Along the Napo, Misahualli, Hollin, or Calmitoyacu rivers near the 16th century town of Archidona there's a world of underground rivers, passageways and impressive caves.

With its variety of rivers catering to all standards, Tena is Ecuador's watersports capital. Choose between the calm waters and the excitement offered by heavy rapids.

Along the Upano River there are watersports schools for tourists wanting an adventure in Southern Ecuador. The Casanga and Quijos Rivers in Baeza [Napo] or the lake in Lago Agrio [Nueva Loja, Sucumbios], offer some great fishing.

The main travel agencies in the country’s major cities, including the capitals of the Amazon provinces, will organise any trip or tour. To participate in high risk sports such as kayaking or rafting, you need to have a specialised guide who knows the river and jungle territories.
