Absolutely, there are a bunch of options to head from Quito to Tena, according to your budget. In Tena, a representative from Yacuma will take you with public bus to San Pedro, from where you will take the canoe into the Yacuma Jungle Reserve.
You can take a scheduled car departure for around $20.-
This car will pick you up from a point which you indicate at 5 am, and arriving to Tena city at around 9:30 am. Here, we recommend having some breakfast, and getting your last minute snacks, batteries, etc, before meeting our representative and heading into yacuma for your jungle adventure.
You can also take Public bus from the Quito Bus Terminal "Quitumbe" to Tena, for $8.-
This ride takes about 2 hours longer to reach to Tena, where a similar process will occur, and our representative will take you from Tena, to Yacuma Jungle EcoLodge.
You can also hire a private car ($90.- one way) to take you from Quito to Tena at your will (making any stops you need)
The works similarly, with scheduled departures or with a private car if you choose so.
The minimum number of Days that we recommend for Yacuma is 3 days and 2 nights in the lodge, but there are also the standard 4D/3N and 5D/4N Packages.
All meals while on the lodge are included in the price, as well as all activities & visits, including kayaks, tubing activities, gold panning, all the jungle hikes available, and much more.
After your Yacuma Experience, we would also recommend heading down to Baños, and eventually to Cuenca, if it is in your trip plans!
Safe travels :D
