During my visit to the Amazon I stayed with the amazing eco-lodge Napo Wildlife Center (NWC). It was without a doubt the best rainforest lodge I have ever been to and was an all around amazing experience. I had an amazing guide, Norby Lopez, who had worked with the Anangu Kichwa Community in 2003 to found the lodge. Everyone I met there was friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and most importantly enthusiastic to be there and showing tourists the wonders of the Amazon. I highly recommend any travelers to the Ecuadorian Amazon stay at NWC. When booking the trip there is an option to hire a private guide for the duration of your trip. If there is a specific animal you are looking to see I would highly recommend this because it is just you, your naturalist guide, your community guide and your canoe paddler on your own and you can completely custom make your itinerary every day. Otherwise you are in a group of 8 guests, which is nice, but you have less control over your itinerary.
Instead of making a post about the lodge I decided to create a short (under 3-minutes) multimedia piece about the lodge.
