It has a population of 45.000 inhabitants. It is visited by tourists going into the Amazonian Forest and is served by the Francisco de Orellana Airport.


The city is named for Francisco de Orellana, first known navigation of the entire length of the Amazon River, which initially was named “Rio de Orellana, he explored the confluence of the Coca River and the Napo River, it is believed that he set sail from the current location of the town eventually making his way into the Amazon River seeing the “Amazon” or tribes in which the women also fought. Eventually Francisco de Orellana made it to the Atlantic. He made a second expedition leaving but died on the Amazon delta unable to find a way through…”

He also founded the city of Guayaquil in what is now Ecuador.
It is incredibly hot and humid; temperatures range from 20-40 centigrade but generally humidity is very high and the temperature is at least in the high 20s.
