Community based tourism at Yasuni Kichwa Ecolodge
Why Yasuní Kichwa Ecolodge
How to get there
Our journey to Yasuní, located in the Amazon jungle starts at Coca. You can get to Coca by car or by air.(Flight Quito/Coca/Quito) The city of Coca is often known as the oil capital of Ecuador and is the place where all tours to the different lodges starts.
We got on board a motorized modern canoe and travelled for 2,5 hours along the wide Napo river, an affluent of the Amazonas river until we arrived to Yasuni Kichwa Ecolodge
DAY 1 –
Shamans and bad energies…
What to bring
If you have a SLR camera with you that day and would like to take plenty of photos from all angles and avoid it from getting wet, get a Professional Rain Cover for Large DSLR Cameras or you risk it getting your camera damaged.
– Sunscreen, Insect repellent, light pants, t-shirts, long sleeves for night hikes, couple of shorts, flash Light with enough batteries for 4 or 5 days, cap, sunglasses, plastic bags big enough for your back pack, sandals (flip flops or water shoes), water bottle, small first aid kit.
PIN IT FOR LATER
If you want more in-depth information and also a guide that you can bring along during your trip, I recommend the travel guide Lonely Planet Ecuador & the Galapagos Islands.
This is a great source of information and tips, maps and all you need if you plan on visiting Ecuador. I personally like the option of having a hard copy version where I can take notes and have at hand.
