EXTENTION

The Amazon basin is the world’s largest tropical rainforest, famed for its biodiversity and its native indigenous tribes. Ecuador has created two big protected areas in order to preserve the natural beauty of this place: the Yasuni National Park and the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve. Chacana Travel offers you 3 Days / 2 Nights and 4 Days/ 3 Nights tours on the most pleasant, enjoyable and eco-friendly Amazon lodges where you will discover the magnificence of this unique place.



In the tropical rain forest, it is better to be prepared for all kinds of weather. A common question we receive is about the Amazon’s «dry and rainy seasons», but it is best not to rely on such generalizations when planning your trip. Sometimes it can be hot and sunny, but a cool rain can appear at any time of the year. We have ceiling fans in every room for hot afternoons, but at night (especially after the rain) some guests are surprised at the need for a T-shirt!

Anyone can enjoy Sacha Lodge, regardless of their physical ability or condition. Much of the Lodge is wheelchair accessible, while there are a number of activities – such as exploring streams via canoe – that can be done without the need to stand or walk.

For the flight to Coca, airlines require that checked baggage be limited to a weight of 23 kilograms per person. However, heavier items, such as cameras and books, can be carried in your handbag (limited to 8 kilograms) if necessary.

For the trip to Sacha from Coca, our canoe is covered against the sun and rain, but spray and a light jacket can be useful for the wind. Be sure to use sunscreen, as sometimes the sun’s reflection in the water can cause burns. For protection against dew and rain, all suitcases will be placed in waterproof bags during the trip on the Napo River.

Light pants and long-sleeved cotton shirts are ideal for walks in the forest. However, if you are more comfortable wearing short sleeves, remember that exposed skin may need a light application of insect repellent.

During rain, full waterproof clothing can be uncomfortable since it often gets wet with sweat instead of water, but rain ponchos are recommended for tropical clouds. Ponchos are available at no cost at the Lodge if you don’t have your own. We also have a supply of rubber boots for free. In sizes we have up to size 14 for men. These boots will serve you for walks inside the forest.

During meals and free time, comfortable shoes (or sandals), shorts, and T-shirts are good for walking on walks and around the Lodge. ¬ ° And don’t forget your swimsuit!
