My wife and I stayed five nights here in January 2012. We stayed in the "Jane" cabin, which was wonderful. If you can, choose Tarzan, Jane, Jaguar or Chita, all of which are elevated and extremely close to the river. You have to be ready for the rigors of a true eco-lodge -- no air conditioning, no hot-water showers, mosquito netting for the bed, etc. -- and for the rewards of a true eco-lodge: the knowledge that this place has a very light footprint on the environment and that it's very involved in helping the local communities. The food was consistently very good, the beer was cold, and the staff -- and especially the owner, Yaro, and his son Rafael -- were totally pleasant people. We were in Nicaragua for three weeks and stayed in other very interesting places, but Sabalos Lodge was THE highlight of our trip.
