Yachana Lodge's contributions to conservation and education are at once extraordinary and subtle. They range from preparing the next generation of environmental stewards to protecting enormous swaths of rainforest. They include serving our own organic, farm-raised meals to sustainable solar electricity. In other words, the environment is not something we 'consider' at Yachana, but rather living in harmony with nature pervades every aspect of our life.
Nevertheless, being green doesn't mean we've forsaken comfort! To the contrary, at Yachana we've found ways to deliver the luxury you deserve while protecting the environment that sustains us. Yachana Lodge offers first-rate accommodations and a wide range of amenities all in the midst of incredible natural beauty of the rainforest.
Yachana Lodge is the only Ecuadorian Amazon lodge that hires virtually all local staff and indigenous naturalist guides. Our personnel receive extensive and continuous training and have years of experience providing a true eco-tourism experience and award-winning service. All of our guides are from the Amazon region, which means they have an intrinsic understanding of the rainforest. Additionally, they are fluent in English, Spanish, Kichua and other indigenous languages
Your stay at Yachana can be full of activities, or you can take it easy and just enjoy "slow travel" in your beautiful surroundings and with great lodge service. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time with us, we'll strive to give you the complete Amazon experience.
