The Amazon Rainforest

Jungle Adventure

We landed in Coca ready for our Amazon Adventure. First we had a 2 hour boat trip down the Napo River. Then we went down a stream which was in a paddle boat. We saw three Black-mantle Tamarin Monkeys which was a great start to the adventure! We got to La Selva eco lodge and the rooms were so cool.

We had to wake up at 6 am and have breakfast. ten we walked to observation deck the view point form the tower was amazing. We saw the worlds loudest animal the Howler Monkey

White Throated Toucan, Crimson-crested Woodpecker and so much more. During the walk we saw a family of curious Squirrel Monkeys.

During the evening we went Piranha fishing and the tour guide caught one and it was so cool to see its sharp teeth.


Every evening we went in a canoe and the first night we saw 2 Blue and Yellow Macaws fly over us which was so cool and when it got darker we saw Caymans swimming. We also had night walks and saw Bats, Tarantulas and frogs. Toby saw a Mouse Opossum.

The meals at La Selva were pretty fancy like raw Tuna which we didn’t like. On the way out we saw the White Fronted Capuchin Monkey and the Pygmy Marmoset.

Holly's favourite bird was the Green Honey Creeper and the White Throated Toucan.
