How do you get there?

  1. Begin by traveling from Quito to Coca (Puerto Francisco de Orellana) either by air (30- minute flight, US$120 round trip) or by land (8- to 10-hour bus ride, US$35 round trip).
  2. Passengers who are flying from Quito to Coca have a checked baggage weight limit of 20 kilos (44 lbs).
  3. Upon arrival in Coca, our staff will meet you for transfer to a motorized boat for a trip (2 hours) downstream on the Napo River to the village of Pompeya and the entrance to the Repsol-YPF oil operation in Block 16. Here visitors must have a photo ID to present to Repsol-YPF security personnel. (Your passport photo page and yellow fever vaccination record will have already been presented at least a week prior to your visit.)
  4. Subsequently, there is another short trip (1 1/2 hours) by land to reach the Tiputini River.
  5. Passengers, gear and supplies are then transferred to our boat and travel continues (2 hours) downstream along a beautiful stream bordered by pristine rainforest where abundant wildlife is easily visible.
