Yachana Lodge is on the banks of the Napo River near the tiny community of Mondaña, 2 hours by motorized canoe from Coca. The lodge was set up by the local community and a non-profit foundation and is a particularly good location to learn about the pressures and opportunities facing the rainforest and its inhabitants.

There are 18 rooms with either two or three single beds. Rooms are screened with mosquito netting and have private bathrooms with warm showers. Each room also has a balcony overlooking the Napo River with chairs and hammocks. 

Meals are predominantly vegetarian with a mix of local and international dishes. Chicken or fish is occasionally served. The bread is home-made, and the juices freshly squeezed. There is a small library and a balcony overlooking the river. The lodge bar serves beer, wine, soft drinks and bottled water and a small gift shop sells local handicrafts as well as basic supplies such as insect repellent and toothpaste.

Activities include rainforest hikes accompanied by a bilingual guide, night walks and sunset cruises on the Napo River. There is also an opportunity to visit community development projects, practise using blowguns, spears and fishing nets, learn basket weaving and participate in a cleansing ceremony with a traditional healer.
