  1. 1. ¡Welcome!Yacuma EcoLodge and the Protected Rainforest Reserve info@yacuma-lodge.com www.yacuma-lodge.com www.ecuadoramazonjunglelodge.comWelcome to Yacuma Lodge, a beautiful place created for those who love theAmazon Rainforest. Through these pages we want to share with you the wondersoffered by the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest and invite you to enjoy anunforgettable journey.¿How was it born? Yacuma Ecolodge is a joint ecotourism initiative of therainforest Indigenous Community of Chontayacu and Pamir Travels Group inEcuador. It was founded in 1995 and since that the Ecolodge provides employmentopportunities through nature-based tourism, a much-needed economic alternativeto lodging.The goal at the outset of the Yacuma project was to create a viable ecotourismlodge that was wholly owned and operated by local Ecuadorian managers andstaff. To accomplish this, Pamir trained villagers in a broad range of activities,including house keeping, food preparation and tours guiding. Today, 15 familiesreceive regular direct economic benefits from employment and management of theecolodge. They also receive indirect benefits from the sale of crafts that are madein a sustainable manner.In March 2004 this extraordinary area was declared a Protected Rainforest Reserveby the Environment Ministry of Ecuador (Registro Forestal No. 15-008).Yacuma Ecolodge allows villagers to benefit economically from living in harmonywith the forest in many ways. In addition to lodge management, for instance,villagers work in sustainable agriculture, handicraft activities and sell non-timberforest products.
  2. 2. During their visit to Yacuma Ecolodge, ecotourists will have the opportunity todiscover the Great Napo River and The Yacuma Protected Forest Reserve throughthe eyes of the Chontayacu Indian community. An experience worthwhile!Yacuma Lodge and the Community!Yacuma Ecolodge and the Community of Chontayacu is a real example of how theEcotourism can benefit both the private enterprises and the local communities.Yacuma Ecolodge built and maintains the local School which provides basiceducation for the kids of the Chontayacu Community and even for other kidscoming from faraway communities. Yacuma pays for the teacher, the uniforms, andthe maintenance of the school and even the year excursion of the kids to someparts of the country.Yacuma Medical Assistance: Each 2 months Yacuma provides for the kidsand adults of the community the assistance of a couple of experienced doctorswho with a lot of love and passion for their profession give to the people freemedical assistance including free medicines which are provided by YacumaEcolodge.Where is located? Yacuma Reserve and Ecolodge are located in the NapoRiver area in the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest. The Yacuma Ecolodge spans300 hectares (3,000,000 square meters). With it richness in species and diverseecosystems, Yacuma Forest Reserve is an extraordinary place for Ecotourists.How to get to Yacuma Lodge?By road: Yacuma is accessible by road with a 4 hours drive from Quito, followingthe route that goes through Papallacta and Baeza towns, until arriving to the city ofTena. From here the journey continues for about 11/2 hours more until San PedroVillage from where our dug-out canoes will take you to Yacuma Lodge (canoetravel time 25 - 30 minutes).Under request we can provide transportation with public or private cars (at extracost).By plane: Also there are flights (not always) available every week Monday andFriday from Quito to the city of Tena. If you arrive to Tena by plain we will pick upyou at the airport and take you to Santa Rosa (or San Pedro) village and then toYacuma Lodge.From Santa Rosa a 25 - 30 minutes canoe boat trip down the river and thecrossing the Yacuma Lagoon takes you to Yacuma Ecolodge.Weather: Yacuma is located in the tropical rainforest, which is characterized forheavy rainfalls through the year with precipitations among 3,000 and 4,000 mm3
  3. 3. and humidity between 85 to 95%. From December to March, it has a marked dryseason, the rainy weather goes from April to July; and from August to Novemberprecipitations are moderated. The average annual temperature ranges over 25oCelsius degrees.Activities Guided nature hikes Local guides give expert interpretation as ecotourists traverse the varied forest habitats of the Yacuma Forest Reserve. There are over 10 Km of trails to choose from, where visitors will learn about medicinal, fruit and exotic plants. Hikes can be done during the day. Bird Watching Over 340 bird species live in the vicinity of Yacuma Reserve. Expert local guides easily identify their songs and calls. Wildlife viewing Ecotourists with luck may have a glimpse of some of the wildlife that inhabits the area, such as monkeys, capybaras, wild pigs, to name a few. But in fact and this is very important to know, that it is a quite difficult task to observe this extraordinary wildlife due to the simple fact that in the jungle there is a struggle for life so everybody is hiding to survive. Canoe trips and fishing Ecotourists can enjoy canoe trips and fishing opportunities on the natural lagoons or the Napo River. Swimming and relaxingAfter a day of hiking we can have the opportunity to enjoy a refreshing swim in theChontayacu River, Sumino River or Napo River. Or simply relax in a hammockwhile listening to the sounds of the forest.Facilities:The tourist development of Yacuma comprises three areas: • The first one consists in a group of 10 “cabañas” (bungalows) built in the traditional Amazon-style, made from rainforest materials harvested in a sustainable manner and combined with modern materials which can be easily taken away from the jungle if necessary. All these cabins can accommodate 4 passengers in comfortable 2 rooms with beds, mosquito nets and private showers and toilets. • In the second area we find two bungalows, each with 2 rooms for 10 people in total and each room with private facilities (shower and toilet) and ideal for families with children. • A third area comprises the spacious dinning room and kitchen.Water is supplied by a nearby spring from where water is pumped into 2 tankswhere it is treated.
  4. 4. Why is Yacuma a real Ecolodge?Lighting is based in Solar Energy. All rooms, toilets and gardens are illuminatedwith special bulbs energized with high efficiency Solar Panels built in Ecuador(Ecuadorean Engineering Company). The bungalows main frames (rows andcolumns) are built with iron elements which can be easily taken away if necessary.This way we avoid the constant cutting of the big trees needed for the bungalowsframes. If we could built the complex with wood frames, then normally each 12months was the need to replace so leading to a constant tree depredation.Yacuma Ecolodge is a charming, comfortable Jungle Lodge located in a beautifulspot, an ideal destination that will let you discover the mysteries of the EcuadorianAmazon Rainforest in a relaxed atmosphere.Other facilities: • Gift Shop: T-shirts, caps, handcraft items from the area. • Dinning room (capacity for 40 pax). • Bar with wine, beer and soft drinks available. • 10 kilometers of trails within Yacuma Reserve traverse the different forest habitats that surround the ecolodge. • Canoes are available for the guests, and two motorized dug-out canoes with capacity for 12 passengers each are used for transportation from San Pedro to the Ecolodge and for the river excursions.What do you have to bring?• Cotton shirts, 3 or more • High speed film (ASA 100 o +)• Long trousers, 3 or more (no jeans) • Binoculars• Shorts, 3 or more • Flashlight (torch)• T-shirts, 3 or more • Sun block• Cotton socks, a pair per day • Bathing suit• Comfortable walking shoes and • Cotton underwear sandals • Money• Sweater • Original Passport• Notebook and book • Water• Toiletries • Canteen• Small backpack (waterproof)• Insect repellent• Sunglasses• Cap or hat• Small first aid kit and prescription medicines
