Regarding the last Yellow Fever outbreak in Brazil and some African countries, it is mandatory for all travelers that have stayed more than 12 hours in the following countries (Brazil, Congo and Uganda) to present the International Certificate of Vaccination to enter to Ecuador.
The Ministry of Health of Ecuador also recommends to take Yellow Fever vaccination 10 days in advance of the visit, to travelers visiting the amazon region, however, it is not a mandatory requirement.
It is important that our visitors are aware that in Ecuador, the ZIKA virus has not reached epidemiological levels. Statistics reflect and classify us in the level of an OUTBREAK; we deal with very few, sudden and isolated appearances. It is also essential to inform you that within our territory – Yasuni National Park -there are no registered cases until today, and there is no history of dengue, yellow fever and chikungunya either.
Furthermore we emphasize that our lodge is surrounded by “black water” tributaries whose PH is very low due to the Amazonia vegetation, its color is due to its origin in the virgin forest and is inappropriate for mosquito breeding.
