We just returned from four nights at Sani Lodge and know it will be a highlight of our family experiences. My son (14) and I are birders but we chose a "general" itinerary to accommodate my wife's and daughter's more general interests and have no regrets. In fact, it is hard to imagine having a better Amazon experience. From booking...

Arriving at Coca airport, we were met by our guide Edwin, transferred to the waterfront & spent the next few hours enjoying the trip on the Napo river. From the river it was an easy 15 min walk to what looked like a lake in front of the lodge. In fact the lake drained into the Napo river - it...

Incredible setting on a jungle lake. Guides were excellent and we saw so many birds, monkeys, insects - and of course - plants! Very nice cabin, good food. The most impressive was the knowledge and attention of the guides

A friend and I spent three nights at Sani and loved the experience. You definitely get the feeling of being in the Amazon: the heavy rain showers, the sound of the jungle at night when you go to sleep (monkeys, birds, frogs, crickets, and ???), having the critters all around you. After a 2 1/2 hour canoe ride, to a...

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...
