Puyo is at the entrance of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Many backpackers stop in Puyo on their way to Cuyabeno or Yasuni, which are deeper into the Amazon.
You don’t need to travel too far to experience the Amazon in Ecuador. You have probably heard of the swing at the end of the world in Baños? Just outside of Baños is Puyo. If you already are going to Baños I strongly recommend taking a day trip to Puyo. This post highlights why you should go and photos to inspire you to visit Puyo.
