Pub­lic Transportation

If you decide to make this won­der­ful trip in pub­lic trans­porta­tion, you must go to Qui­tumbe sta­tion South of Quito, where you can take the Flota Pelileo bus at 06h00 am or Baños Express bus at 07h00 am these are fixed depar­tures. The cost is $ 8.00 per per­son, and the trip to Tena lasts about 5 hours.

We rec­om­mend the first option to arrive early, which allow you to enjoy the deli­cious food of the area and gives you time to buy your tick­ets at the Cen­tinela bus sta­tion to the 13h00 bus to San Pedro. The travel time is about 2 hours; you should be at the sta­tion a 15 min­utes before depar­ture. When you arrive in San Pedro, our staff will wait for you to take you in canoe to our lodge (30 minutes).

Pri­vate Trans­porta­tion

If you are trav­el­ing in your own car, it is rec­om­mended that you leave Quito before 7h00 am, because it takes you about 5 hours to get to Tena and 2 more hours to arrive in San Pedro. You do not have to worry about leav­ing your car in San Pedro, because there is a park­ing space where a fam­ily is in charge of guard­ing the car.

You can have break­fast in Baeza, we rec­om­mend Gina’s restau­rant (spe­cially trout). For lunch in Tena, we rec­om­mend the Ama­zonas restau­rant or All Deli. Please remem­ber that we will have din­ner wait­ing for you at the lodge on fist day.

When arriv­ing in Tena, take the road towards the new air­port in Ahuano to get to San Pedro, where our Yacuma staff will wait for you.

On you way back to Quito, we rec­om­mend that you visit Mis­ahuallí to meet the mon­keys liv­ing on the beach and after­wards enter the Jumandy caves ($ 3.50 p.p) or you can travel to Papal­lacta and enjoy a bath in the hot springs water ($ 7.00 p.p).

By plane (not always avail­able)

Flights every week, Mon­day, Wednes­day and Fri­day from Quito to Tena city. If you arrive to Tena by plane we will pick you up at the air­port and take you to San Pedro Vil­lage and then by canoe to Yacuma Lodge. (extra cost)
