Yuturi Lodge Lodges

The adventure begins with a 25- minutes flight from Quito to Coca crossing the majestic Andes, flying over and enjoying the beauty of the Ecuadorian rainforest. Later you will navigate with a motorized canoe along the Napo River - a major tributary of the Amazon River - up to the confluence with the Yuturi River.

The crossing from Coca to the Yuturi Nature Reserve takes round about five hours. In our comfortable and covered motor canoes you will enjoy the beautiful scenery of the banks and the houses of the Quechua indigenous people, who still care about their traditions such as the preparation of "chicha" out of Maniok and "vanillo de plátano".

The lodge complex is surrounded by three lagoons and is situated in the midst of a charming jungle landscape, where the guests are able to enjoy the innumerable sounds of nature as well as the tranquility and silence of the jungle. In order to preserve the harmony of the surroundings all cabins with private bathrooms were built out of typical materials taken from the nature of that region.

The word "Yuturi" comes from the Quechua language and refers to the Congo- ant, which is abundant in that area.

The personal attention we offer at Yuturi allows us that every guest is able to choose the activities he likes - in accordance with the respective programs.

To the most fascinating adventures we offer at Yuturi rank at any rate the night cruises with a canoe to spot caimans, the piranha- fishing as well as the visit to a monkey island and much more.
