Amazing stay at Yoi Ecolodge. Like other reviews have mentioned, you are truly staying in the jungle--two hours up the Amazon from Leticia and another 45 min up a tributary! Lodging is basic but comfortable: bunks with mosquito nets, bathrooms with running water (but not heated), generous meals with local ingredients. Excellent level of customer service: from the minute we... More

We had stayed in tropical rainforests in Vietnam and Thailand, but staying at Yoi EcoLodge far surpassed other experiences and was the highlight of our trip to Colombia. Julian was keen to know what we were interested in and then planned activities for the two of us, so it it was a genuinely unique and personalised stay. The organisation was... More

If you are looking for an authentic experience in the Amazon, you should definitely go for this. Our guide and host, Eliseo, and our boatman, Rey, were extraordinary! The day trips were amazing, crusing while spotting the different animals in the wild, and the night hike we did was interesting! All meals we had there were delicious too! We just... More

We wanted an amazon adventure and that's exactly what this place offers! We got picked up at the airport and then got a boat to the lodge and discovered we had the whole place to ourselves (plus staff). Our guides Palo and Salome (who also translated for us) were great as they took us to all the places we wanted... More

We had a wonderful time at Yoi mostly thanks to our fantastic guide/translators - Palo and Salome. They went the extra mile to ensure our stay would be all we hoped for. The food was simple buy excellent and plentiful. The cabins are rustic but charming. It is a joy to wake up to the sounds of the nearby jungle.... More

In short: Yoi made our trip to the Amazon unforgettable. I would recommend it unreservedly to anyone who wants to really get out into the jungle, wants to patronize an organization that is closely bound to the local community and prioritizes a real, not manufactured experience. In detail: From the practical side of things, organization is very good. It's no... More

We had a great time at Yoi ecolodge. It takes a bit of time to reach the lodge, it's located right in the national park, but it is well worth it. The lodge is set-up with great care according the traditional building constructions, surrounded by a beautiful garden. Our guide Ray and translator Salome were absolutely great. They knew a...

My wife and I recently stayed at Yoi, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience at this lovely and charming outpost. I will summarize the pros and cons of our time in the Amazon as follows: CONS: You arrive first in Leticia to await transfer. Leticia is off-putting. It is sad to see the local population litter and nonchalantly throw trash... More
