4 Days & 3 Nights


Experience Ecuador’s Amazon Culture and Nature

The Yachana 4 Day and 3 Night package has the perfect itinerary for exploring the Ecuadorian rainforest and its cultures. Your time will be spent enjoying the variety of activities that Yachana Lodge and Yachana Training Center are famous for offering.

Example Itinerary

Day 1

If you'd like we can help to arrange for a trusted private driver to transport you from either the Quito Airport (About $200 and about 5.5 hours) or the Coca Airport (Usually $50 and about 2 hours) to our lodge.

Your adventure starts here as you pass through various landscapes and small towns. Be on the lookout for monkeys, birds and a beautiful display of wildlife as you venture further into the Amazon landscape. If you are coming from Quito you can also talk to your driver about stopping at a hummingbird reserve or a recommended restaurant. (These costs are not part of our excursions but make for a great place to stretch your legs on your way here).

When you arrive at the Yachana, you will receive a warm welcome from our staff who will serve you a refreshing beverage and a snack while you are introduced to the lodge and the work of the foundation.


That afternoon, you will explore our educational center and see the many working exhibits.

Dinner will be served at 7:00pm.

Day 2

Your day starts early with bird watching in our open safari excursion truck.


Breakfast will be served afterwards.


You will then enjoy a jungle hike under the rainforest canopy. Your guide will point out wild animal and plant life that are unique to this area which is 80% primary rainforest.

Lunch will be served at 12:30pm.

In the afternoon we'll head to the Napo River (a tributary river to the Amazon!) where we'll go for a canoe ride and enjoy the view, maybe even get your feet wet.


Then we will gather to make chocolate from dry cocao beans and enjoy a delicious evening treat after dinner.

Dinner will be served at 7:00pm.

Day 3

After a traditional breakfast, you will go to visit a local farm to see and harvest a variety of local produce and medicinal plants. You will then return to the Lodge and actually be involved in cooking your lunch. This is a continuation of our National Geographic Conservation Trust project to involve our visitors in the Lost Foods of the Amazon.

In the afternoon we'll take a short drive an then hike into a waterfall and swimming hole. Nothing quite like taking a swim and listening to the water fall to feel at one with the nature around you.

Dinner will be served at 7:00pm.


After dinner, you will take a night walk to discover a different side of the rainforest life.


Day 4

After breakfast you will take private transport for your departure. If you'd like, on your way out ask your driver to stop by Witoca- an artisan coffee shop and coffee farm. 

*Please be aware that Lodge activities may vary in order due to weather conditions, but rest assured. Your guide will do everything possible to maintain the  established itinerary whenever possible.
