Located in the Yasuni National Park deep in the Ecuadorean Amazon, Napo Wildlife Centre is an eco-escape like no other. Dotted around the banks of a lagoon amid thick jungle vegetation, the 20 thatched cabins look like simple huts from the outside, but appearances can be deceiving. Head indoors and you'll find spacious suites built from natural and sustainable materials, embellished with striking features like intricately carved wooden headboards and panoramic glass floors - all offering comfortable beds and crisp white linens. Not that you'll want to spend too much time in your room.
A visit to Napo Wildlife Centre is all about getting out and exploring the unique ecosystem that surrounds it. You'll venture into the forest with native guides to spot macaws, giant armadillos and toucans, climb the observation tower for 360-degree views above the canopy and explore in canoes to meet giant otters, turtle and caimans.
