Discovering Yarina Ecolodge: A Gateway to Amazonian Marvels. Nestled amidst the lush embrace of the Ecuadorian Amazon, Yarina Ecolodge beckons travelers seeking an authentic and enchanting rainforest experience. Situated along the serene Napo River in the province of Orellana, this eco-friendly haven is just a scenic 60-minute motorized canoe ride from El Coca, providing a seamless transition from urban life to the heart of nature. What sets Yarina Ecolodge apart is its strategic location in an area of the forest boasting the highest diversity of microhabitats in the Napo region. This translates into a rich tapestry of wildlife, including myriad animal species, birds, reptiles, and insects, making it an unparalleled destination for nature enthusiasts.

Eco-Friendly Cabins: A Home in Harmony with Nature
Our commitment to preserving the natural beauty of the Amazon is evident in our 22 individual cabins, each a testament to sustainable architecture.

Crafted using indigenous materials like bamboo and toquilla straw, furthermore these cabins blend seamlessly with the ecosystem while providing modern amenities.

Each cabin features a private bathroom with a hot-water shower, hammocks, closet, nightstand, mosquito net, and lamp.

The lodge also boasts cozy and spacious lounges equipped with hammocks and sofas, perfect for relaxation and taking in the breathtaking sunsets or dramatic rainstorms.

A Palette of Activities: Explore the Amazon’s Treasures
Yarina Ecolodge offers a treasure trove of activities for every taste and interest. With more than 380 bird species, over 96 mammals, and a plethora of ancient trees and plants, your days here will be filled with wonder.

Activities range from bird and alligator watching to piranha fishing, night hikes through the rainforest, shamanic experiences, regattas, and guided hikes through primary and secondary forests.

Immerse yourself in local culture with visits to traditional Quichua houses and embrace the Amazon’s mystique.

How to reach Yarina Ecolodge
Your journey begins with a 30-minute flight from Quito to El Coca, soaring over the majestic Andes and the stunning Ecuadorian forest. From there, you will embark on a boat ride along the Napo River, the main tributary of the Amazonas River, until you reach its confluence with Rio Maduro.

The trip from El Coca to the Yarina Ecolodge Reserve is a comfortable one-hour journey on a motorized canoe. Along the way, you can take in the breathtaking riverside scenery and catch glimpses of Quichua communities, who continue to preserve their customs and traditions, such as the making of “chica de yuca,” a traditional drink made from fermented yuca and saliva.

The Magical Yasuni National Park
Ecuador, though small in size, is a treasure trove of biodiversity, housing 2% of the Amazonian watershed. This region, known as the West, is a compact geographical area that boasts one of the highest levels of diversity and accessibility in the world. This is largely due to its well-developed tourist infrastructure. The region encompasses six provinces: Sucumbíos, Orellana, Napo, Pastaza, Morona Santiago, and Zamora Chinchipe.

One of the jewels of the Ecuadorian Amazon is the captivating Yasuní National Park. Spanning an impressive 1,022,736 hectares, this park has been recognized as a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. It serves as a sanctuary for over 600 species, offering a rich tapestry of diverse birds, trees, rivers, and a variety of large and small animals. From majestic jaguars and formidable anacondas to graceful harpy eagles and playful monkeys, not to mention an array of reptiles – Yasuní National Park is truly a testament to the wonders of nature.
