Half hour from Tena, you have a nice place to relax in clear water in the middle of nowhere. You have to cross a river and it is a community managed place.

Proper name is Waysayacu (Laguna Azul is something like a commercial-tourist name)

It's amazing, like a lost paradise. Usually not so crowded (except holidays).

It's located 40 minutes from Tena.

There are natural pools with crystal clear water. You may walk a little bit to the upper pools and get and unforgettable landscape and experience.

The place is in charge of local community members, so you have to pay a small fee to enter.

Inside you can get typical local food (recommended Tilapia al Maito)

Crystal clear water from a pristine jungle stream, three or four pools, each a little further into the jungle. simply awesome! And the pool at the entrance provides the chance for a three or four meter leap. It is run by the local Kichwa community and they also serve local - chicken or Tilapia Miato (both cooked inside a large leaf) - about 4-5$ and cold cerveza. In the morning you can catch a bit more sun, as it sets behind the adjacent mountains.

Laguna azul is an amazing place to relax for a few hours and go swimming in the chilly River that's coming from the mountains. The water is very clear and a perfect contrast to the warmth of the rainforest.

To get here I recommend to take a taxi from Tena for 15$. There are buses in the direction of the laguna, however the last 8-10km you would need to hike.
For getting back down I recommend to just walk down the road (it's a nice hike through the jungle) and try to hitchhike if you don't want to walk anymore.
