Trip of a lifetime. I was very worried if I was just wasting money heading to the Amazon, but as it’s a bucket list destination for me and I was already in Ecuador I took the chance. I can’t thank Amazon Dolphin Lodge enough for how wonderful they made my trip! First of all, I’m a solo traveller and it happened that I was the only guest booked for the 4day/3night experience. They could have cancelled me. But they didn’t. I had the resort to myself. The resort is beautifully remote, 4 hrs down the Napo River then another hour up a small river. The lagoon it’s situated on is stunning. The amount of wildlife is deafening. Hats off to the chef who cooked incredible three course vegan meals for me. Huge thanks to the guide Diego who never tired and was so excited to show off his ‘office’ to me. And to all the other staff who made me feel at home. We had an evening excursion every night. Morning excursions and mid day treks. I think I had about 2-3hrs of down time in the entire 4 days. The giant otters were the highlight though it is hard to choose. We saw at least 120 species that we were able to identify. I highly recommend Amazon Dolphin Lodge for anyone who wants a real Amazon wildlife experience!

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.
