Category: Local Operators
Advantage Travel is a family-owned and operated DMC with 25 years of experience in the tourism industry. It specializes in tailor-made packages throughout the 4 worlds of Ecuador: Galapagos Islands, Pacific Coast, Andean Highlands, and the Amazon Rainforest. It features The Anakonda Amazon Cruises, winner of the World Travel Awards as South America's Leading Boutique Cruise, and the new Manatee Amazon Explorer that was just launched in July 2017.

Both ships are the perfect vessels to discover one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature: The Amazon Rainforest. They offer a highly prized experience characterized by its first class facilities, exceptional culinary offerings, and a unique Amazonian cultural immersion.

It also owns the newly renovated Mantaraya Lodge, a Mediterranean style hotel in the Pacific Coast, near the Isla de la Plata, nicknamed small Galapagos; the perfect place to enjoy humpback whale watching.

Advantage Travel’s principles encompass sincere care for natural resources and culture conservation. It is committed to applying responsible and sustainable tourism practices and community involvement in all of its operations.

This philosophy has inspired Advantage Travel to found Capi’s Amazon River Program (CARP). It manages 3 nonprofit sustainable rescue projects for endangered animals in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest:

1. Charapas Program: Its main purpose is to protect and repopulate this turtle species.
2. Pink Dolphin Program: It provides a breeding place in a free and natural environment for this unique species.
3. Manatee Program: This program also provides a breeding place, as well as a research station to facilitate the monitoring and observation of the critically endangered Manatee, a fascinating aquatic mammal.

Capi’s Amazon River Station relies deeply on the support of local communities, international organizations, scientists, world travelers and volunteers to accomplish its main goal of preserving this one of a kind destination.
