We Made it to the Jungle

It took almost five hours in two different types of canoes to reach our eco-lodge, but we are here, safe and sound, in the Amazon rainforest. We have already seen an amazing array of birds and other animals. There have definitely been times where we felt as though we had stepped back in time and were explorers making discoveries around every corner. We have a full itinerary of treks on both foot and canoe and are looking forward to seeing as much during our four days and three nights as possible. It is time for us to head down to the canoe launch for our afternoon excursion, so here are a few photos of our trip down the Napo River (part of the Amazon River) to give you an idea of what it was like to arrive here.
