Arriving at the lodge with motor boats gave from first moment impression that all safety measures were taken into account. We has life jackets on although the boat was very stable.

I visited Yacuma Lodge in February 2014 as part of a tour with a group of five travellers. We were met on time by the motor canoe that took us to the lodge and greeted by the staff and welcomed to the lodge with a traditional drink. The staff were professional and accommodating and the adminstrator a very gracious host.... More

What a wonderful way to experience the Ecuadorian Amazon. We started with a long minibus drive on roads which got steadily rougher until, just as we thought they couldn't get worse, we turned off onto an even rougher road and wound our way to a small village. Here we loaded onto a canoe on the Napo River (a tributary of... More

Everything is a surprise, you don't expect anything from what you are going to experience, and yet, you love it all. You start with a trip on the Napa river for about 20 minutes, being overwhelmed by the beautiful landscape of manglers and birds. You arrive and they are expecting you, to welcome you with a drink and smiles, plenty... More

We spent 3 nights an 4 days at the lodge and did a variety of activities. The highlights for us were the following: 1. 4+ hour hike in the... More

We had two nights at the lodge. The food was great. We had a boat ride to the AmaZOOnia animal refuge which was very enlighting in showing how the local indigenous people live and use the Amazon river tributories. The guided walk with Milton was also fantastic - it was done in gumboots and the path is authentic so don't... More

After a long trip to get there, the lodge was going to need to work hard to exceed our expectations and they did it. The cabanas were clean & comfortable. The food was beyond delicious. The excursions made us tired but was well worth the sore muscles.

During a 2 week visit to Equador we spent a few days at the Yacuma lodge. While the trip to the lodge from Quito (or any other place) can be far and a bit rough, the peace and quiet found in the lodge surely makes up for this many times over. The lodge keeps a respectful balance with the rain... More
