This is my 2nd trip to Ecuador with San Jorge Eco Lodges August 2013. Excellent pre-departure reservation assistance, guide service, lodges, new Milpe lodge, hiking at private nature reserves, birds, flora, fauna, food, yeah and what FOOD, those cooks are outstanding. After San Jorge Eco Lodges, we traveled on to the Amazon for 4 days all organized by Cheryl, the US agent. (I think she even returned some of my phone calls at midnight.) My co leader and I set up this Sierra Club Angeles Chapter Travel Adventure trip just after our first visit in 2011. 15 happy travelers this past August and ready to go again.
