Set on the edge of the Upper Napo River near the Mondana community, just two hours from Coca, Minga Lodge commands stunning rainforest views.

Accommodation is in private, en-suite cabins. All cabins have high thatched roofs and private terraces and are decorated in a simple but comfortable style with local materials, giving them a rustic charm. Windows and doors are screened and the bathrooms have hot showers. Dining here is a treat with freshly prepared family-style meals using local ingredients, served on an outdoor deck overlooking the river whenever possible, making dining a memorable experience with spectacular sunset views. People from the local community are employed in the running of the accommodation and experiences for visitors.
