Are trip to Anaconda Lodge was wonderful!
We stayed 3 nights, which were spectacular, the cabins are in the jungle so you can listen to all kinds of birds and animals of the jungle.

The Amazon jungle tours are guided by a native Kichwa named Carlos, the best that I've had, speaks very good English.

The rooms are spectacular, comfortable, bathroom are very clean and the beds excellent! The balcony has hammocks where you can relax after a day of hiking to hear the birds and the sound of the Amazon.

The owners are wonderful people, they are always helpful, I really felt at home, there slogan is well named; "Welcome to your home in the Ecuadorian Amazon," because it was what I felt with the group.

It's the ideal place to spend a few days exploring the Amazon, I recommend it!

HeadsUp: notice that every review of this property, except one, was written by a person that only had that one review. Hum!? Where is the credibility? Another reality check... this lodge is NOT in the Old growth jungle, not even close. The old jungle is gone. This lodge is a few kilometer from a new airport and, then by a canoe, on a island that was 40 years ago real jungle but now has very little connection to the jungle that most people imagine. There is NO jungle life to be found, including birds, unless you count a few chickens in a nearby hut as jungle life. OK? Got the picture. That said, Anaconda Lodge is one of the oldest jungle lodges in the area. It was purchased recently and has been refurbished by new owners. They have done a good job in cleaning up the property and making the rooms comfortable. The food at the lodge can be good but by the time we left it was disappointing. You will be lucky to get fish or chicken once every other day. Most likely your meals will be veterinarian... the plates will be good but could be much better. So if you are looking for a get-a-way for a few days then this lodge will do, but if you are looking for a genuine jungle experience then you will have to go deeper than this.

Regretfully this passenger did not pay the bill, he owns Anaconda Lodge more than US$200.00
So what ever he says about us is all lies. Please other hotels or lodges, take care of this person, he is not a nice person.
