The Jatunyacu (meaning “big water” in Kichwa) is a great river full of big waves and pools. Enjoy the jungle scenery as you paddle this tributary to the Amazon. The headwaters of the Jatunyacu are found on the Cotopaxi volcano which means chilly water that slowly grows warmer as other jungle streams merge in. Also known as the Upper Napo as the river becomes the Napo when it merges with the Misahualli.
