"Coca - Puerto Francisco de Orellana" Coca by MalenaN
Coca Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 15 photos
Coca (Puerto Francisco de Orellana) is the capital of Provincia de Orellana and it is situated at the confluence of Río Coca and Río Napo, at an altitude of 300m above sea level. The climate is hot and humid and temperatures vary between 20-40°C. Since the 1980s Coca is fast growing because of the oil industry. It is a concrete town with a population of about 45 000 inhabitants.
Coca is the starting point for many jungle tours. Most tourists arrive by plane and are transferred to the docks from where they continue their journey down Río Napo to one of the jungle lodges. That is what I did, so I didn’t see very much of Coca. If you are staying longer there isn’t very much to do in the town for a tourist. You can visit the archaeological museum, take a stroll in Parque Central or along the Malecón or visit the market.
After arriving to Coca by plane we were taken to the dock where we boarded a big motorised canoe. We travelled in that... more travel advice
