Banks town in Ecuador. Beautiful town with good mountain tracking. I recommend to rent a bicycle and ride around the town!

For jungle tour first go to Coca. Next go to Cuyabeno. But even better go to Yasuni National Park. I recommend minimum 1 week tour. No matter if you book in advance or find tour/guide when you arrive to Ecuador. Jungle tour is- the best attraction Iin the cocountry!
