Itinerary

Day 1Trip to La Casa del Suizo

The trip to La Casa del Suizo will depart from Quito, Ecuador’s capital, at 8:00am in private transportation. The first leg of our journey brings us to Papallacta, a small mountain village famous for its natural hot springs. We will continue our journey along a scenic stretch of road which takes us out of the majestic Andes highlands and down into the “Oriente”, or Amazon region. Along the way there will be several opportunities to stop for photographs, overlooking lush green valleys and beautiful sparkling waterfalls. The road ends at Punta Ahuano, a tiny port town on the North bank of the Napo River, where canoes await for a late-afternoon 15-minute ride downstream to la Casa del Suizo. The group will arrive with time to get settled, and enjoy a sunset from our swimming pool with a refreshing welcome cocktail. During days 2 and 3 at La Casa del Suizo, our guests will participate in several morning, afternoon and full day activities. These programs will begin after an early breakfast, and will be led by both native and bilingual guides.
Note: the activities on day 2 and day 3 may be inverted.
