The lodge is located in an amazing location, at the edge of a pristine lake in the middle of Yasuni National Park. It is owned by the Kichwa Anangu local community, and they do a superb job in operating the lodge. The staff is excellent. The meals are quite good, especially considering that everything must be brought to the lodge... More

We had the best experience of our lives at Napo. We were so pleased that we had asked for our own naturalist guide. In fact we had a naturalist guide, a local guide and another paddler to ourselves, all Kichwa people with good English. Having the canoe to ourselves meant that we had better opportunities to see and photograph the... More

The dining area was right on the lagoon with beautiful views of lake, caiman, trees and in hearing distance of the howler monkeys.

It is fascinating to be deep in the Amazonas jungle, experiencing the unique wildlife and flora. The experience was strongly enhanced by the highly competent guides working at Napo.
