Sacha Lodge

The Lodge

Sacha Lodge is located on a 5000-acre private ecological reserve in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon.  During your stay at Sacha Lodge, immerse yourself in the rainforest without sacrificing comfort.  Furthermore, the lodge was designed to promote sustainability and minimize the impact on the environment so you’ll feel good about protecting the treasures that surround you.

  • Scenic bar & lounge
  • Made from traditional material of the jungle canopy
  • Barbecue & dining area
  • Canopy walk & wooden observation tower


You can stay in a cabin with a high thatched roof, made of traditional materials, where you’ll blend into your surroundings and heighten your chances of wildlife sightings, including visits from toucans, agoutis, monkeys and more.  The cabins include private bathrooms, hot showers, ceiling fans and insect screens.

  • Single or double accomadation
  • Private bathroom
  • Screened & cool rooms
  • Shower
  • Hammock


For a different perspective, visit the main bar and lounge, which boasts panoramic views of Pilchicocha Lake, the private lagoon where the lodge is located.  Here, you can bird watch as you refresh yourself with a freshly made cocktail, cool beverage, or exotic Ecuadorian natural juices.  For an up-close look at the forest’s canopy layer, have a stroll hundreds of feet in the air along the 940-foot long suspended platform walkway.  Here, you can experience what it feels like to live amongst the treetops and socialize with thousands of colorful birds and the occasional family of monkeys.

If you’d rather stay grounded, explore the vast network of trails surrounding the lodge, and visit the butterfly farm (one of the largest in Ecuador!), just a 10-minute walk from the lodge.  Here, you can see over 40 local species and learn about the lodge’s butterfly conservation project.  You can travel back in time as you paddle around the lake in an indigenous canoe or go fishing for piranhas over the dock.  At night, the lake is the best place to look for caymans.  Members of the alligator family, these reptiles are often seen from canoes.

Our trip was fantastic and Micaela with Andean Discovery was great! Every detail was taken care of ahead of time. We just showed up and enjoyed the beauty of South America. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

Traveling to the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu was a dream vacation for my wife. After much research we booked our trip through Andean Discovery. We are so glad we did. Everything went smoothly and our personal guides in Ecuador and Peru were wonderful. I would highly recommend Andean Discovery to anyone thinking of taking a similar trip.

My family toured the Galapagos Islands and Machu Picchu in Peru with Andean Discovery guides and reservations. We had a fabulous adventure! I recommend highly that "superior lodging" be chosen as an option for the best possible room accommodations. The marvelous comfort of the fine hotels Andean booked for us made all the difference.

Thanks to Andean our vacation was a wonderful experience for our entire family of 15 (8 adults and 7 grand kids aged 16 to 9).. The planning for the trip to the Galapagos was well researched; the hotels, guides and itinerary were spot on. They answered our many questions before we departed and there NO disappointments during the vacation. It was the most memorable trip our family has taken.

We traveled with our family of 3 people. Andean did a wonderful job helping us select an itinerary that was able to accommodate our various ages. We had no glitches in a fairly complicated itinerary and everything came off as planned. Our local guide in Quito Johanna was terrific. I can't recommend Sacha Lodge more highly. Our experience in Galapagos on the Coral 1 was magical. While the crew of the Coral 1 could have been more charming and smiled on occasion they were helpful, the food was very good and the rooms were kept clean. I have no reservations in recommending Andean Discovery for your South American Holiday

Damon put together the perfect itinerary for our group of 7 - including grandparents. His knowledge of the region is superb, which is why he is able to create the ultimate trip for your family. From whitewater rafting in Peru to zip-lining in Ecuador, we truly had the trip of a lifetime! I wouldn't go with anyone else!
