Drinking and nightlife in The Oriente

  • Nightlife in Tena

    Guayusa Lounge

    Inside or out, the ambience at this hip spot is invitingly chill. The interior, brightened by huge picture windows, feels spacious and jungle-industrial, while the outdoor patio is inviting too. Come here for cocktails concocted with Amazonian herbs like guayusa and ishpingo (native cinnamon), and stay for the refreshingly different rice bowls, pizzas, salads, hummus and appetizers.

  • Nightlife in Tena

    La Araña Bar Coctelería

    The most popular place for drinking and carousing is the raucous ‘spider,’ across the river at the end of the footbridge. The cocktail list is varied, it’s busy nightly, and rammed with locals and travelers on its riverfront patio at the weekend. Expect a hangover.

  • Nightlife in Coca

    Bar Pappa Dans

    Coca's first decent-looking bar, this palapa -style place has prime river views and good cocktails. There's sometimes a cover charge (about $5) for live music and dancing on weekends.
