Yarina Lodge

Yarina Lodge is a great option for people that want to visit the Coca Jungle region at an affordable price. Yarina offers an impressive array of activities from bird watching to piranha fishing and canoe trips and of course the opportunity to visit an indigenous family and learn from their traditions and customs. Another plus is that Yarina is located closer to Coca than most other lodges which means less travel time and more activities.

Lodge Background

The YARINA Lodge is strategically located in an area of forest that counts on the highest diversity of micro-habitats in the Napo area. This means that there are more species of animals, birds, reptiles and insects than anywhere else on the Napo River or in the surroundings.

Yarina Eco Lodge started 10 years ago as a program to teach the importance of conserving wildlife and our environment with the local community. However, year by year, the lodge was growing, changing and developing new important forms of work with the local people, along with national and international tourists. Today, the lodge is considered one of the most important and best rescue centers of wildlife in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
