I went to Sani to experience the rain forest and 'Amazonia' but mostly for the birding. I was very sorry to leave on the fifth day, and if returning, would stay another one or two. I appreciate that Sani doesn't limit start dates except for no Sunday starts. It makes more efficient travel planning (in my mind). The office was... More

Sani lodge is an excellent base from which to explore the lagoons and yakoos of the rainforest. With the added benefit of excellent guides, fast and efficient service and comfortable lodges. The bar area overlooking the lagoon was a wonderful place to come back to and discuss the wildlife spotted that day - anything from caimen to turtles all in... More

We stayed at Sani for 4d/3n in February 2014, and had an unforgettable experience. We chose the lodge because of its remote location, reputation for seeing wildlife, and the fact that it is run by the local indigenous community and the proceeds benefit them directly. From the representatives at the airport, to the transportation by motorized canoe from Coca to... More

We stayed at Sani Lodge for 5 days 4 nights in Feb 2014. The lodge is set out in the Amazon surrounded by the jungle. I choose this lodge above others because it is run by the local Sani people, not outsiders and they use the profits to educate and give back to their people and homes. This an alternative... More

We were on a two week photo tour in Ecuador. Our first three locations were in the cloud forest. None of the other places compared with this location. The facilities are so cool. Wonderful open dining area and bar. Nice cabins with lots of room and good bathroom facilities considering where you are located. Matresses were quite good. Mosquito nets... More

We visited Sani Lodge twice, camping both times. The beauty of this place, the service, the food, all excellent! We camped and were steeped in the natural wonders of this place all with excellent amenities, and excellent service. I am quite picky about food and when vacationing, I usually endure the food choices I have, not at Sani Lodge! Seriously,... More

This was really a great experience of the rainforest. Although, we had no rain, it was sunny and really nice which may have affected the reason we saw only a few species. Great guide, great food. The cabin was relatively comfortable. Wished though the bed net was newer and in better shape. Thank you for giving us such a great... More

We stayed 4 days 3 nights at Sani in the tents in November. This seemed like the perfect length of stay. The tents in the camping area were clean, a little bit small for 2 people, but not too bad. The mats were pretty comfortable. The canoe ride to and from the tents was a little bit restrictive for things... More
