Trip to jungle

General information

After completing the registration form, you will receive instructions on how to pay a deposit of $225. This deposit serves as a booking fee and will be deducted from the total price of the tour.
The rest of the amount is paid in cash in dollars on the first day of the tour.

The maximum number of people in one group is 8.

If there are at least 5 people in the group, the price will be the same.
The tour can also be done for two people. However, the price will be a bit more expensive.

Many people come to the expedition solo, and there's nothing to be afraid of. Throughout the expedition, we travel together as a group. No one will feel alone here. Everyone who comes here always becomes friends immediately and stays in touch even after the expedition. There is a friendly and family atmosphere here, where the goal is for everyone to feel at home and part of the group!

You don't need to speak any foreign language. Everything will be translated for you during the expedition.

After paying the deposit, you will receive a personal guidebook via email, containing all the detailed information about the expedition.

Basic meals (Breakfast, lunch, and dinner) are included in the price. Everything else, such as snacks, etc., is paid for by each individual.

Breakfast and dinner will be provided at our accommodation, and lunches during the program will be at restaurants.

To ensure you enjoy your stay to the fullest and don't have to stress about transportation, we will have a private driver available to us throughout our expedition.

The flight information is available here in the 'Flights' section.

For traveling to South America, no visa is required. Upon arrival in the country, you will automatically receive a stamp allowing entry for 3 months. It is necessary to have a valid passport for at least 6 months (passport validity must not be less than six months). Information about flights, transportation, and travel insurance can be found here

No vaccinations are required for entry into Ecuador. In the areas where we will be moving, there is no stagnant water, so mosquitoes that could infect you with malaria are not present. Although there is no such danger, and you still want to get vaccinated, you certainly can. Since the vaccine can weaken your immune system, I recommend getting vaccinated at least 2 weeks before departure.

The mobile network operates on the 850 Mhz band, which can be problematic for most Czech SIM cards. Therefore, I recommend purchasing a SIM card from CLARO or MOVISTAR directly in Ecuador. The price of a SIM card including data connection is around +/- $10, depending on the data volume you will need. I also use this company, and it works great. However, it is important to note that you will only get signal in cities and some uncertain places during travel. In the jungle, however, you won't connect to any operator's network. If you want, I can help you purchase a SIM card, as it is available almost everywhere in larger cities. However, you don't have to worry about being completely cut off from the rest of the world. Wi-Fi is available in the accommodation where we will be staying. Thanks to this, you can stay connected, for example, through apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, etc.

The only official currency in Ecuador is the US dollar. I recommend bringing enough cash in the smallest denominations possible. Since there are many counterfeit bills circulating in the country in denominations of 50 and 100 USD, most merchants only accept bills up to 20 USD.

However, in larger cities, supermarkets, and hotels, card payments are often accepted. It's better to exchange money in your own country. ATMs can be found in all major and even smaller cities, but they don't always work perfectly. Card payments are possible in larger establishments, but expect to be charged a fee of 3-10% of the purchase price. Most upscale hotels add a 12% tax and a 10% service charge to the bill, which is usually already included in the total price.

The weather in Ecuador is very changeable and unpredictable. It depends on whether you arrive during the rainy season or the dry season. In the Amazon, it is warm all year round, but also humid. Additionally, there is a large amount of precipitation, and average temperatures range from 26–30 °C, so you will need not only rubber boots but also a raincoat. However, you don't have to worry about the rain affecting our program. In the evening, temperatures here range around 20 °C.

In the area where we will be moving, there are two hospitals and one private clinic. Private clinics, hospitals, and other facilities have qualified staff, modern equipment, and quality facilities, but all procedures must be paid for on the spot. Therefore, I recommend taking out travel insurance that covers any expenses in full.
