Day 1 - Your Ecuadorian Me to We Experience Begins
Your Ecuadorian Me to We experience begins today, with a boat trip down the Napo River to Minga Lodge offering an opportunity to learn about the local Amazonian life.
Arriving at Minga by boat is the perfect means of travel, a traditional form of transport that will introduce you to life on the riverbanks. Your introduction continues at the lodge with a chance to discover more about the Me to We development model and the local Kichwa community.
After settling into your room there is an opportunity to take part in an informal group session where you can pick up a few phrases in Spanish that will come in useful over the next few days, as well as meeting fellow guests.
Your first dinner then awaits, its lively flavours rivalled only by the spectacular views from the dining platform, out over the Napo river, the sounds of the jungle serenading your meal. If the jungle noise has piqued your interest, this evening offers the chance to take a walk with a guide, discovering the multitude of nocturnal creatures, including tree snakes, owls and frogs, before returning to the comfort of your cabin.
