Even though our family has been to remote parts of the Costa Rican rain forest we still found the Sani Lodge Amazon to be an overwhelmingly amazing experience. My wife, two boys 8 and 11, and I all loved it. Sani took great care of us from when we arrived in Quito until we returned back to Quito. They tailored... More

Absolutely amazing place. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful, the food was delicious, and the mosquito netting and hot water were much appreciated. A stunningly beautiful lodge in the breathtakingly beautiful Amazon. One of the best parts was visiting the Sani Isla community. I am so glad I had the opportunity to visit this place. I'll absolutely go back if... More

My boyfriend and I booked 4 nights with three and half day of expeditions. It was all beyond our expectations. The place is very remote what tributes to the experience to be deep in the jungle.

We did not STAY at the lodge, but a stop here for a nice lunch and informative nature walk was included as part of our 5-day Amazon riverboat stay.

The lodge is beautiful, comfortable and spotless. The guides are native and a delight. Their knowledge is passed down from generations, they are not professionals or formally educated. I find this preferable, since you can google things like migration and life span of stuff, but they have a deeper appreciation for the plants and animals of the Amazon and were... More
