Landing at Coca City - Mytravelling Days
 

It was a 25 minutes flight over the dense jungle of Amazonia. During the last minutes before landing, we could see from above the rivers Coca, Payamino and Napo, at the confluence of which is situated the capital of Orellana Province, the city Coca.

Coca, a small city at the confluence of three rivers, was of no particular interest till the ‘80s.
Nevertheless, it grew rapidly in size and population the next coming years and was completely transformed, due to the foreign investments done by big oil companies, after the discovery of oil reserves in the surrounding area.  
It has a population of 20.000 inhabitants.
The local government, in the last 30 years, has been trying to protect the indigenous Amazon peoples who live in the extended area and also the unique ecosystem with its extraordinary fauna and flora, while at the same time has as main aim to invest in tourist infrastructure.
Truth be told, the above efforts have to face the oil drilling companies, which monopolize the exploitation of the area and have caused irreparable damage to the surrounding jungle.
