Without an official website and only a handful of online reviews available, very little is known about Francisco de Orellana Airport's single terminal and its amenities. Being such a small airport, we suspect Coca's airport is likely lacking in on-site dining, shops, and services. Several past guests also commented that this little airport is often hot and crowded. So, dress lightly! On the journey to Francisco de Orellana Airport, we recommend that you pick up any provisions at upon landing in Quito or the United States.


Coca, Ecudar is first and foremost an oil town. There are, however, a few quality attractions here. For instance, Yasuni National Park is a stunning rainforest, filled with amazing biodiversity in plants and animals alike. There are 150 amphibian species within its leafy bowers, which is considered a world record! You'll also see colourful treefrogs, numerous bats, and over 100,000 different types of bugs. There's also the Museo Arqueologico Centro Cultural de Orellana (MACCO), which opened in 2006 and showcases excellent exhibits about the Amazon's indigenous people. Finally, as we mentioned above, Coca is often the starting point for many guided tours into Ecuador's awe-striking jungle.
