Imagine yourself cruising down a serene river on a motor canoe in the rainforest.

Or plunging through rapids on a raft or inflatable kayak.

Picture yourself hiking up to, swimming around back, and then standing behind the curtain of a beautiful waterfall, looking out into primary rainforest.

How about weaving and sometimes crawling through slot-like caves or maybe enticing a monkey to sit on your shoulder with a grape?

Ecuadorian chocolate is known around the world these days as some of the finest. Imagine yourself being part of the process of making the best chocolate in the world and then tasting the final product. You can do that on a chocolate making demo on a small Kichwa farm right out in the jungle!

There’s much more for you to do here as well, including an overnight at a jungle lodge with a night walk, dawn birdwatching tour, amazing butterfly farm (where there are so many butterflies they ltierally land on you!), and on and on.

Now stop dreaming about it. Come experience the jungle with us! Book a tour here.

Amazing overnight jungle tour! Highly recommended       Tom M. of Amsterdam (on tripadvisor, January 14, 2018)

Gary's overnight jungle tour is everything you want when visiting the Amazon. When hiking through the jungle he has great knowledge about everything that you see around you. The two days are packed with fun activities, and even includes things that are not on the itinerary (no spoilers :-).  Compared to other tours (we talked to people joining other tours at our lodge) Gary was the most experienced, knowledgeable and fun guide in the area. Highly recommended to also stay in hotel la casa blanca in Tena before/after the tour. The hotel is owned by Gary and Michelle and the room/breakfast/information/service is amazing!

  • El Parque Amazónico La Isla This lovely island park has finally reopened after being closed for over a year. The park is nice thing to check out on the day you arrive in Tena, when you have a little time, but not enough to go out sightseeing. A self-guided trail takes you through labeled local plants and some animal enclosures. A tapir and a cuchucho wander the grounds free and squirrel monkeys dart through the treetops. The animals in enclosures have not been returned yet, though. Take the steps down from the tourist tower located at the halfway point of the pedestrian bridge right in the center of town, where the Pano and Tena rivers converge. Costs $2, closes at 5 pm.


  • What's going on in Tena Events happening in Tena tend to be advertised last minute, so I may not be completely up to date here. Many events get posted on these 2 Facebook sites: Tena Turistico, Gadm Tena, and Casa Bonuchelli has a theatre production once a month on a Friday night at 7pm. So if you are looking for the very latest....there you go.
