On the Anakonda Amazon River Cruise, visit remote ecosystems that few have had the opportunity to experience while enjoying the comforts, commodities and services of a 5-star boutique river hotel.
Apart from highlighting the Amazon to the world, explaining to guests the importance of protecting it, working hard to promote environmental awareness not only for those who visit, but for our employees and the communities at large, our state-of-the-art vessel were purposely conceived to create the least impact possible on the environment. Our waste management programs were designed upon analyzing the sum of different experiences in Amazonian Ecuador and applying them to international standards.
All of us at Anakonda Amazon Cruises are well aware that we operate in an extremely fragile and deeply controversial region. We believe that sustainable tourism —giving visitors from other corners of the world the opportunity to experience natural heritage sites as fascinating as the Amazon Basin – offers an excellent way for local communities to reap financial benefits while protecting and cherishing the land they call home. Not only do we employ guides and crew locally, we offer important percentages of some of our most luxurious programs, such as glamping, to our employees. We take our guests to a variety of environmentally-sound and culturally-engaging visitor sites run by local communities in order to involve them in important aspects of the tourism industry, knowing quite well by now that making conservation irresistible for the people that live in environmentally endangered areas is the only way to secure their long term conservation. There is much to be done to protect this sublimely special land, and we at ANAKONDA know that we will need help from those directly involved, the true guardians of the Amazon, to do so.
