The best Ecuador amazon jungle experience on Motorcycle

This moto adventure tour is designed to show you the extremes that Ecuador can offer. Our Amazon basin is known worldwide for its impressive sceneries that come from the slow transition from our Andes region all the way down to the Amazon Jungle. Ecuador is the most biodiverse country on the planet, this unique condition allows us to have landscapes that you can not see anywhere else.

 

You will ride from Quito south heading to the village of Papallacta, this small area is well known for its natural hot springs, this is the gateway to the Amazon basin from the Ecuadorian highlands.
In the Andes, the higher you get, the cooler the temperatures are. During the day it can be warm and sunny, rain in the afternoon, and chilly in the evenings. This area is no exception, you will pass through one of the heights roads in the country at nearly 4.000mts. over sea level.

If the climate is good on some parts of this trip you will be able to see the Sangay volcano, Sangay National Park has three volcanoes, tropical rainforests, and mountain paramos, making it a natural wonderland that extends from high peaks to the Amazon basin.

You will keep riding through the Amazon jungle to the small town of Puyo, this area is known as «Heart of the Amazon» is the largest Canton in the country with 9800 square kilometers. It has become the most touristy Canton of the Amazon.

 

The landscape and the natural beauty of the charms of Pastaza offer the best options to visitors and scientists who wish to know the impressive vegetation, fauna, immense rivers, waterfalls, and other fascinating places of the east of Ecuador.

 

The name of the city is because it is located on the banks of the Puyo River. In turn, Puyo comes from the word puyu which means haze in Quichua. Located on the outer flanks of the eastern cordillera of the Andes, in the Amazon Region of Ecuador, in the west of the province of Pastaza; approximately one hour from Baños along a very good quality road. It is located at 924 m. above sea level, at a latitude of 0 ° 59 ‘-1 «S and a longitude of 77 ° 49’ 0» W. Puyo is a small city that in recent years has significantly increased its tourist offer with special emphasis on the ecological and adventure activities. It has a great hydrological richness to its surroundings, besides the Puyo River runs east of the city.

 

From Puyo we will head back into the Andes to the city of “Baños de Agua Santa”.

 

The setting is amazing: you can see waterfalls, hike through lush forests, rest in steaming thermal springs (similar to Papallacta), hike down impossibly steep forest hills, bike or boat all the way to back to the Amazon Basin, and see the occasional eruption of nearby Volcán Tungurahua.

Weather and Temperature

For travelers, the weather in Ecuador’s Andes is a bit confusing. Each region has its own weather patterns. While it can rain daily through the wet season, it also rains in Chicago, London, Venice, and elsewhere. The advantage that Ecuador’s highlands have are that there is normally sunshine as a matter of course, and instead of temperatures dropping during this time, they rise-helped out by the warm current from the jungle and from the coast of Panama.

 

There is a dry season and a rainy season in the highlands, the first running from June to September, and the latter taking place between October and May. It’s generally cooler during the dry season, while the wet season brings warmer temperatures and rain showers.
This is very much a rule of thumb, as some years the rains can last into the summer months, or only come sporadically.

 

In other areas of South America, including the climbing town’s in Peru, rains shut down tourism for months as storms pelt the area and make traveling there an endurance sport. Ecuador enjoys temperate weather that is often compared to “Eternal Spring,” making exploring the four regions at any time during the year an adventure worth taking.
