This is probably the most up-scale wilderness lodge you can find in the Ecuadorean Amazon. The service is outstanding and starts at Quito airport, all the way to your spacious cabin at Sacha Lodge. We were impressed by the food, which was terrific, with plenty of options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The daily morning (be prepared to get up at 5:30 am) and afternoon hikes/canoe trips were full of surprises in terms of animals and plants. We didn't expect that the animals would be difficult to find but our great guides, Gabriel the naturalist and Wilson the Native, were amazing in spotting them.
We stayed for 5 nights and would have happily stayed longer as there was so much to see and do! We had a few hours between every excursion and were easily able to fill up that time with reading on the hammock, visiting the butterfly garden, watching monkeys pass by our cabin frequently, swimming in the piranha and cayman infested waters, and going piranha fishing!
Because of the wonderful environment and welcoming staff we can't wait to plan our next trip to Sacha Lodge!!!
P.S. I recommend that when you do your hikes / canoe trips, you should bring something along to write down the names of the animals and birds that you spot. You will see so many that by the time you are back at your cabin, you forget most of their names!
