At Yachana we provide local bilingual guides [English and Spanish] who have attended Yachana Foundation schools and have received additional training from organizations like Global Vision International or while attending classes in the United States.

Our guides are trained in the environment, interpretation of the rainforest, ecological processes and natural history.

Being locally born they naturally have knowledge of medicinal plants, trees, animal behavior, and local beliefs and myths about the plants, animals and culture of the area.

Our guides will help to interpret things seen on each and every activity from the perspective of their local knowledge.

Additional the will also contect scientific facts about what you are seeing to further enrich your experiences.

At any time our guides are ready to answer questions about the plants, birds, insects, animals and the people of the zone.
