The Amazon Jungle is a destination that many dream of. A destination that seems so otherworldly that maybe, just maybe, it’s out of reach…
Well, we have great news for you: it’s not out of reach. The Amazon Lodge of your dreams is actually just a 25-minute flight from Quito and then an epic two-hour motorized canoe journey away.
And the setting is well worth the effort. Sacha Lodge sits within a pristine 5,000-acre ecological reserve. And the eco-lodge also sits within the animal kingdom. Step out of the lodge and you’ll find yourself among 8 species of monkeys, 50 species of bats, tons of sloths, colourful birds, and so much more.
Even better, you can visit with ease on a 4-day Short Break Adventure with Intrepid Travel. This Ecuador Amazon Wilderness trip features daily activities with an English-speaking local guide. Consider a canopy walk nearly 100-feet over the treetops. Or hike on the trail Leoncillo to try and spot the elusive dusky titi monkey. Or simply chill out on one of the lodge’s many private shaded terraces with hammocks. Bliss.
Appetite whetted? There’s no point merely talking about how incredible the lodge is, take a look:
