I was in Tena in January. Seemed to me that if one hung out at either of the two riverside bars in the evenings, they would meet lots of boater types. Don't have any more help than that. Very friendly place, that Tena.

Agree with hky about the bar scene. The hostel "A welcome break" is another good place to look/stay.

I appreciate the response. I was there a few months ago and did exactly that. It should be the same story, but its always worth putting out the word.

I was down there around this time a few years ago and met up with a young guy named Pablo, but everybody calls him Pingullio. He safety boats for a number of different whitewater companies down there, one of which is Rios Ecuador. He is a great guy and has family in Mishualli, so he lined up shuttles and food for us, lots of connections. Not sure how to contact him now but hitting up Rios Ecuador might be a start. I do know he's in Banos quite a bit this time of year.

Also, the Welcome Break is a great place to stay, and the Tortuga Cafe is great for breakfast.
