A riverside lunch, equipment, and hotel pickup and drop-off will all be included. Prepare for a day of adventure and to have the time of your life!
Meet your guide in your Tena hotel lobby at 8:30am and begin the 45 minute drive to the rapids. Pass through the indigenous communities of Pano and Bajo Talag along the way and observe the locals in their daily lives. Upon your arrival in the jungle, your guides will give a briefing regarding safety. The first few rapids are easy and will help you get comfortable before you get to the first big rapid, Pimpilala.
Jatun Yacu is generally known to have exciting rapids followed by a calm pool before the next set of rapids. This allows for relaxing and even a short swim to cool off on a hot day between rapids. At about the half way point, you will stop at a small beach for a riverside lunch. Taste the delicious and famous banana bread while you are there. After lunch, you will continue down the river for about 2 more hours before heading out in Puerto Napo.
The drive back to the office from Puerto Napo will be approximately 10 minutes.
