About the M/VAnakonda

Ecuador boasts the most accessible Amazon Basin in all of South America, with a mere 30-minute plane ride to frontier towns that will serve as a springboard for your Amazonian adventures. Anakonda River Cruise navigates along the Amazon River’s major tributaries and goes deep into Yasuni National Park with jungles covered with tall forests that reach heights of over 50 meters. Within lies, the most complex and intricate network of life our planet holds, and many biological and environmental studies suggest that it is here, in this concrete northwestern edge of the Amazon, where biodiversity is highest worldwide.
