It is more than just a visit to the jungle it allows you to share with local communities plus the possibility to collaborate with them The educational center is very interesting because local students may learn very practical, modern and useful technologies by doing by themselves . In fact the guide was trained there and was excellent trained with much... More

It was rainy in the rain forest (!) but cheerful at the Yachana Lodge. The food at every meal was varied and delicious. The director took a personal interest in our well-being and made sure we were well-informed and comfortable. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. It was a fantastic experience.

I travelled by car from Quito to Yachana Lodge with a friend and family members through the lovely Andes Mountains, stopping along the way to see spectacular views, waterfalls, hillside fauna and birds, and for a local lunch. Upon arrival, we were shown to our private cabins which consisted of a large bedroom/sitting area, balcony with hammocks and a clean,... More

Everything was amazing. The food was awesome. The activities were very fun (which, coming from me, says a lot since I'm not easily impressed). Our guide and the staff accommodated our every need. We saw abundant wildlife, including a fer-de-lance pit viper. Yachana is much more than a lodging experience - they use their proceeds to set up local schools... More

We enjoyed a most relaxing time with exquisite accommodation, friendly helpful staff, excellent dining facilities and cuisine. The activities were adequate for the area. It didnt seem to be an Amazon River type adventure as I pre trip envisaged the Amazon region to be, but was in Amazon Basin. Very enjoyable

I was part of a medical mission in Equador. The Yachana Lodge was our lodging during our final week in the region. It was a blessed relief to be able to enjoy such a wonderful place after 3 long previous weeks in other areas. The time we did get to spend at the Lodge was awesome. I'd love to return... More

Arrived after a long busride from Quito. Fantastic nature all the way passing over the mountain pass with a perfect view of Antisana, then descending to the cloud forest and finally the rain forest. Cabins are comfortable with mosquito nets instead of windows. The view is overwhelming with Rio Napo and rain forest. Great young people from the area working... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
After 17 years of operating on the other side of the Napo River, we have built a new, stunningly beautiful Yachana Lodge within our 2,500-acre reserve. In our new location you will discover a hidden secret of the Amazon: a world class, award winning "Geotourism Lodge". There are 14 luxurious cabins built on a bluff overlooking the Napo River with spectacular views of the river and the Andes in the distance, surrounded by lush natural forests and beautiful gardens. All cabins have private bathrooms with hot water shower and large porches with hammocks. A major activity for our guests is our Lost Foods of the Amazon culinary program; visiting and harvesting on a local farm, then preparing your lunch and eating it in our beautiful, open dining area designed in the style of a typical Amazonian hut, with spectacular views of the Napo River. We also offer walks in the rainforest, incredible birding and other cultural activities. Yachana's accommodations and activities are targeted at the traveller who cares about sustaining and enhancing the geographical character of the Amazon - its rainforest environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well being of its residents. The Yachana Foundation for 23 years has created opportunities in ecotourism, education, conservation, income generation and health care throughout the Ecuadorian Amazon. ... more   less
