The lodge is in a prime area for bird watching and the canopy tower & parrot clay licks are a huge highlight. The guides are very knowledgeable about the wildlife and are very keen spotters, they found birds hiding in thick foliage I never would have seen. The bungalow was very nice and peaceful. Birding photos are on milestothewild.com

Especially the boat trips from and to the resort were great. The guides were very friendly and experienced and showed us a lot of wild animals. Although all the food etc has to be carried by boat to the resort, it was really delicious. the visit to the village nearby was to long and not so very interesting.

As others have said it is quite some distance to get there but this all adds to the experience. The room is basic but when you think where you are it's really quite luxurious. I'm not the best at 'roughing it' but for 3 nights I could cope with the always feeling damp and the ever increasing frizzy hair! The... More

Trip of a lifetime with excellent guides, food and wildlife viewing. From the tme we stepped off the plane, we put ourselves into the hands of our Kichwa and Ecuadorean leaders. Attention to the comfort of the travelers was first-rate, with rubber boots and ponchos when needed and locating wildlife in the green, green of the streamside.
