About it

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

The Yarina Biological Reserve is located 25 Km down river from Puerto Francisco de Orellana (Coca). Our motor boat canoes take around 1 hour of fluvial navigation along the Napo river to reach the Yarina Biological Reserve. Yarina B. R., is a privately owned rainforest reserve (550 has), located near the Yasuni National Park, in the cultural reserved zone, set aside for indigenous Quichuas, Amazonian people, in a primary upper rainforest.
