About this trip


Tropical rainforest Pañacocha

The Amazon Dolphin Lodge is located in the Pañacocha protected forest reserve, (56,000 has) and is central to a biological corridor linking Yasuni National Park and the Cuyabeno Wildlife Refuge.


Pañacocha is classified as a Humid Tropical Forest. Wildlife is in abundance everywhere in the reserve. A short list of possible observations includes: Howler, Squirl, Capuchin and night monkeys along with the Black-mantled Tamarin and Pigmy Marmosets, and of course the Amazon Pink River Dolphin.


Thanks to our central location in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon, our professional local guides, our multilingual staff, and our motivation we offer a hands-on experience of the jungle. We are able to achieve a wide range of possibilities to explore the plants, animals and cultural diversity of the area and provide the adventure that, without a doubt, you have been looking for.

We had a great experience staying at Yarina. The lodge was beautiful, and the deck was great for animal watching (we saw lots of birds and monkeys!). The rooms were awesome, the hammocks on the decks were definitely a plus. Lots of activities that kept us busy, the food was really delicious and they were able to accomodate dietary restrictions, and met lots of great people there. Would definitely recommend staying there.

We have a grate time with are Guide Wilson, he was knowledgeable. The lodge was clean, and food was good. for the small budget is was a good option .... but if you want to see more variety of animal and more upscale room i suggest to go at Sacha Lodge.

Great experience. After the pickup at the airport we navigated down the river for approx. 45 min to reach the Lodge, which is situated in a clearing surrounded by the primary forest. The tours and activities are very well organized and our guide was amazing (thank you Livio!). The kitchen staff was great too, the chef really did his best to come up with vegan recipes for my wife and the guys at the bar made really good cocktails. Probably the best way to experience the rainforest for the first time. It was not cheap, but definitely worth it.

It was excellent. The lodge with its cabins is very nice, comfortable and clean. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The food was simply amazing - we had not expected a three course menu for lunch and dinner with this high quality. Also our excursions were perfect, we saw many animals and got explanations on them and important plants thanks to our guide Eduardo. We had the best time. Thank you!
