The Amazon rainforest takes up much of Ecuador’s eastern half, and a visit to the jungle offers a wonderful opportunity to explore the rivers and flooded forest of the world’s largest rainforest.

The Rio Napo is one of the Amazon’s main tributaries, and staying in a lodge allows you to explore the oxbow lakes, trek through the forest and visit the native communities. Sacha Lodge is beautifully set on a blackwater lake, just off the Napo River, in a private 2,000 hectare reserve. The lodge, one of the best in Ecuador, has beautiful public areas, including a bar overlooking the lake. The rooms are simple, but comfortable, with electricity and private bathrooms with hot showers. The lodge has a 275-metre canopy walkway, allowing you to see the jungle treetops from 30 metres above the ground.
