During your Ecuador rainforest wildlife and birdwatching tour we will walk past huge kapok trees and vines while we spot exotic birds, tropical frogs, reptiles such as black and white caiman, noisy monkeys such as howler monkeys and spider monkeys and with some luck mammals like giant otters, tapirs and others. On these expeditions we will also have the opportunity to visit the native communities of the area. In the Oriente there are 6 different communities (Cofan, Siona-Secoya, Huaorani, Achuar, Shuar and Quichua) most of them conserve part of their culture and try to live like their ancestors.
