Highly recommend this place tucked waaaay deep into the Amazon. I had never been to South America, don't speak Spanish and was traveling alone. I don't considered myself an extremely adventurous traveler so I wanted something where I felt safe yet still experience the jungle and not feel like I was in a Disney World resort. This place was perfect:...

I can't say enough good things about our experience with YOI Ecotours. I had a vision of celebrating my 40th birthday with a semi-crazy 5-day trek deep into the Amazon and they made it happen. And as the icing on the cake, Julian was able to arrange for us to accompany the research team from the Maikuchiga monkey rehabilitation center...

Why we loved our experience with Yoi EcoTours: 1. It's the Amazon rainforest 2. Julian and his team are fantastic guides; helpful, courteous, very knowledgable about both cultural history and natural ecology, and strong advocates for animal and habitat conservation 3. Surprise-filled excursions include (but are not limited to) visits to the monkey sanctuary, hammock camping in the jungle, eye-opening...

My family and I visited Yoi back in April of this year and cannot sing enough praises for Julian and his team. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the food is fresh and delicious and the staff are as loving and family-oriented as you can ever want. We traveled with our thirteen year old son and eleven month old daughter. We...

Almost one year ago my boyfriend and I had the most amazing time at the Yoi Ecolodge. We visited the amazon in "dry season" which saved us some mosquito bites. We would love to come back one time when the riverbanks are flooded and you can take a boat trip between the tree tops, but the travel was still worth...

We spent 5 nights at Yoi Ecolodge. We were very well guided by our young Colombian guide Antonia and by the local guide Rey. They are very professional. However, the lodges were dark, without electricity, the bathroom was dirty and the bed uncomfortable. The food conserved without frige was limit as in quantity as in quality. Our stomach were perturbed....

Hello, Thank you for your feed back. I regret that the lodge did not meet your expectations. We do state on our website that there is no electricity in the cabins. I apologize on behalf of the staff if you found the facilities not as clean as you would have liked. This is the first time we have had any...

Yoi EcoLodge gave us a wonderful Amazon experience. Our accommodation was comfortable and had everything we needed, especially good mosquito nets. Our transport was organised and the meals prepared for us at the lodge were delicious, plentiful and interesting. Basilio our guide was informative and we loved his stories and myths of the rain forest. Jose our guide was great....

The organization was perfect. Also the food and accomodation were excellent. You can choose what you want to do out of different activities and each one we did was worth it. The guide is very good and as non spanish speakers you can ask for a translator.

This was our favorite spot, after spending three weeks in Amazonas. For anyone looking for a "wild" or true Amazon experience, this is the place. I think this is the most remote place I've ever been to (an amazing feeling). You're treated like family, given three big delicious meals a day, and given a private guide and translator. Everything is...
