My friend and I could only stay for three days but we still has an amazing time.

Many reviewers have described how to get there. You fly or drive to Coca, the gate-a-way city to the Ecuadorian Amazons. From there, you get on a motor boat, sail downstream for 2-3 hours, get off the boat, walk on a board walk for 10-15 minutes. Somebody will pick you up in a canoe, and paddle you to the lodge...

Sani Lodge is truly a hidden gem of tranquillity! Perched on a side of a winding river, in the midst of dense jungle, hammocks hanging on the wooden deck looking over lush green forest stretching endlessly over the other side of the river. With stunning views from every angle, traditionally designed large ensuite cabins, 5 star friendly service from the...

My boyfriend and I booked the 4 day/3 night package at Sani Lodge and it was a really incredible few days.

Sani Lodge is located deep within the Ecuadorian Amazon. After a two-hour boat ride from Puerto Francisco de Orellana (Coca), ten-minutes walk, and twenty-minutes in a dug out canoe, you will arrive, wet and sweaty, at the mysterious lake called Challuacocha, where floating water hyacinths and grasses obscure the shores. The lodge is built, owned, and managed by the Sani...
