I cannot say enough positive things about Yoi Ecotours. If you want an authentic, well-run vacation in the Amazon, this is your place. Julian and his staff are extremely accommodating, knowledgable, and work their hardest to ensure that your experience is everything that you want. The only draw back is how quickly the time passes while you're there. If you... More

I just left from 4 nights at Yoi. I had a great time, as it was a well-run lodge that was deep in the rainforest and up the river that you had a sense of adventure and being immersed in Amazon, however, still had many luxuries though rustic. My guide, Rey, is the king! Very knowledgeable about wildlife but also... More

My wife and I stayed at YOI in January of 2015 and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Considering how remote the locations is, I couldn't believe the level of service Julian and his staff were able to offer. Food was prepared fresh, the guides were extremely knowledgeable and able to accommodate any combination of activities we wanted to... More

Time passes by so quickly, so it´s already 3 months ago we´ve visited the Amazon. However I do not want to miss to write a few words to those who are still searching for the perfect trip and give my recommendation. For us it has been a fabulous experience. We´re always searching for something individual organized by people who appreciate... More

We spend 3 nights at Yoi Eco Lodge and this was an amazing adventure. You'll find that place in the jungle after 3 hours boat drive from Leticia. Staying there, without electricity, makes you being part of the nature. To hear the voices of the jungle, especially by night, to see and touch the animals makes the stay unforgetable. Julian...

I still recall how wonderful this experience was. Brilliant sensational memories of a fabulous week with Julian and his team. A real Colombia highlight and a must do. There for 5 nights enjoying the forest, wildlife, people and the sensational rivers.

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
