Rio Rodriguez

Walk in the jungle, Viewpoint, swim

Duration: 5 hours – 1 day

Starting at 09:00 am

This one-day tour is a 5-hour hike. You walk through the rain forest discovering the protected area of Selva Viva and arrive at the Rio Rodriguez where you can relax by enjoying your meal served in leaves of platanillos and taking a bath in the crystal-clear river.

All over the day, the kichwa guide shares his knowledge about the flora and fauna with you. He explains to you which plants are used by the kichwas for medicine and which one for roof construction, blowguns and so on. Concerning the fauna, you will have the opportunity to observe an interesting variety of insects (butterfly, ants, termite) and maybe amphibians. However, the chances that you see bigger mammals are small because usually they are night-active or very discreet.

After the break you continue your walk until AmaZOOnico (visit possible) from where you can get back to Liana Lodge by canoe or tubes.
