About this trip

Enjoy a unique experience with an encounter with the largest reptile in the Amazon, the black caiman (melanosuchus niger). According to myths and legend, the black caiman is said to reach the length of 6 meters long. Limoncocha is 1.5 hours down the Napo River from Coca in the Sucumbíos Province. Limoncocha is a great place to see not only the black caiman, but other wildlife such as birds, monkeys, and other creatures that visit the lagoon.

WOW, I have to start by saying Sarah, Marco and Omar were above outstanding!! Because of them, it's easy to overlook the few things on the trip that weren't favorable. We weren't expecting so much of our trip to be in the canoe...13, 14 hours is just too long, FOR US...although we saw so much beauty, it was just very uncomfortable. I paid extra for two of us to be able to go Peacock Bass fishing on the AquaRio, but no accomodations were made for that and I was quite disappointed. That has been a life long dream of my husband's and I thought I had arranged to give him that wonderful gift but it just didn't play out that way. However, Omar did TRY to make up for it and I appriciate his effort but it still wasn't the arrangement I thought I had set up and paid for. We had also looked forward to meeting the Indigenous Tribes but were told that that wasn't included in our tour even though it's right on out itenerary... DAY 4 Our boat back to Coca departs at 06:00 am. We’ll have a packed breakfast on the way. You’ll have the option of visiting the Shuar Cultural Center along the way where you can learn about the cosmovision, myths, and legends of one of the indigenous cultures of the Amazon. We’ll also have a chance to try typical gastronomy. The visit will last about 3-4 hours and will cost $20 per person. The Lodge itself was wonderful! Our hosts were WONDERFUL! The food, was wonderful and we really enjoyed ourselves. Overall, I would probably have given a 3 out of 5 stars for a rating except our hosts, Sarah, Marco and Omar were SO exceptional that they more than make up for the few disappointments and I gladly give 5 stars.
