About us

6Welcome to Yachana Lodge

Our name means “a place for learning” in the indigenous Kichwa language.

Our lodge is located on a bluff overlooking the Napo River within our Protected Reserve of 1,000 hectares (2,500 acres) in the Napo Province of Ecuador.

All our accommodations have beautiful views, the grounds are a paradise of plant and animal life and the lodge benefits from the work of Yachana Foundation’s technology, innovation and inventions which include ozone treated safe-drinking water system throughout the lodge, WIFI internet access in all cabins.

Yachana Lodge is the tourism arm of the Yachana Foundation.

Yachana Lodge was created to help support the social efforts of the foundation.

The income from the lodge has helped Yachana Foundation reach many of its project goals.

An overview

EXPERIENCE ECUADOR’S AMAZON CULTURE AND NATURE AT THE YACHANA LODGE AND FOUNDATION

The first thing you realize when arriving at Yachana  is the amazing views of the Napo River that snakes through the valley below the lodge. During the evening hours the sun sets over the western horizon where the Amazon Rainforest  meets Ecuador’s Andes Mountains. On clear days the peaks of five volcanoes can be clearly seen on the horizon, as you peer out over the dense jungle from your cabin porch.
