Lodge in the Amazon Rainforest [03:10]
Welcome to Yacuma Lodge, a beautiful place created for those who love the Amazon Rainforest. Through these pages we want to share with you the wonders offered by the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest and invite you to enjoy an unforgettable journey. ¿How was it born? Yacuma Ecolodge is a joint ecotourism initiative of the rainforest Indigenous Kichwa Community of Chontayacu and Pamir Travels Group in Ecuador. It was founded in 1995 and since that the Ecolodge provides employment opportunities through nature-based tourism, a much-needed economic alternative to lodging. The goal at the outset of the Yacuma project was to create a viable ecotourism lodge that is wholly owned and operated by local Ecuadorian managers and staff. To accomplish this, Pamir trained villagers in a broad range of activities, including house keeping, food preparation and tours guiding. Today, 15 families receive regular direct economic benefits from employment and management of the ecolodge. They also receive indirect benefits from the sale of crafts that are made in a sustainable manner.
