Anakonda Amazon Cruise

Ecuador's only luxury, boutique riverboat exploring the Yasuni National Park, in supreme comfort

Winner of the 2016 World Travel Award as South America's Leading Boutique Cruise, the 40-passenger Anakonda riverboat is the only luxury boutique Amazon cruise winding its way through Ecuador's Amazon, operating in the upper basins of the Napo and Aguarico Rivers, around Limoncocha Wildlife Reserve and Yasuni National Park - Ecuador’s largest protected animal reserve.

The Anakonda offers itineraries of 4, 5 and 8 days (a combination of the 4 and 5 day). With such devoted and highly-knowledgeable guides, and so much to see in the Ecuadorean Amazon on board a vessel whose suites are so comfortable and facilities so excellent, even an 8 day journey will seem too short.

Named after the anaconda, the infamous gargantuan serpent that Hollywood has managed to misrepresent in many a movie, the Anakonda is in reality, like its namesake snake, a graceful, beautiful almost spiritual vessel to behold as she winds through the depths of the Amazon rainforest. As has the anaconda been an inspiration for indigenous art, symbolizing Mother Nature’s gifts to our planet, a cruise aboard the luxurious Anakonda is an equally artistic and generous offering with her sumptuous curves of modern design and adventurous itineraries that give you the opportunity to discover some of the Ecuadorian Amazon's spectacular wildlife and uncover her innermost secrets.

Lucky guests of the Anakonda will get to relax even before boarding the vessel, in the purpose-built, private VIP lounge at the pier in Coca, were complimentary refreshments are available.

Once you step foot on baord, you'll find more luxurious touches, with the vessel featuring an expansive observation deck complete with lazy chairs and a refreshing coolwater outdoor Jacuzzi, and a wonderful al fresco lounge, ideal for cocktails, relaxation, reading or simply enjoying the spectacular view. Her expert naturalist  guides and special travel concierge will go out of their way to give you a personalized cruise experience. Why not try your hand at kayaking, or on the longer itineraries, spend a glamping night in the jungle (additional cost), for an even closer look at the flora and fauna and spectacular starry skies?

When not dining on the terrace, you will find yourself eating irresistible tropical cuisine in the comforts of the spacious indoor dining room, from adventurous Ecuadorian dishes rich in Amazonian ingredients to staple classics of international origins. When you're not out on excursions you may find yourself relaxing in the ample sitting areas or large and comfortable beds of one of her spacious 14 Standard or 4 slightly larger Deluxe Suites with their own Jacuzzi baths and private balconies. All have air-conditioning for your comfort and fantastic floor-to-ceiling windows for unrestricted viewing of the spectacular passing scenery.

Travelling with children? The Anakonda is a great family-friendly vessel. 4 of the Standard Suites are interconnectable and all suites can easily fit an additional bed. Not only that but they have a special kid's menu, child-specific jungle activities, and to keep them entertained on board, jigsaws, films, TV and a selection of board games.

What people are saying about the Anakonda

anakonda cruise testimonial
I just wanted to let you know that our cruise on the Anakonda was absolutely fabulous! The crew and service was great, the guides personable and knowledgeable, the food and accommodations beyond compare. This is ideal for those who want luxury (we were a little spoiled). A trip of a lifetime, not just a checkmark in the travel book.

anakonda cruise testimonial
We were very lucky to be well looked after by the most amazing staff and crew. Our amazing trip through the Amazon rainforest was one exciting adventure after another. A highlight for us was observing the behaviour at the Parrot Clay lick. For me a week is not long enough, I merely scratched the surface.
