Sacha Lodge - Ecuadorian Amazon
Exploring the areas around Sacha Lodge
The amazing Amazon and Adventure life. A dream come true for me. As a child I always dreamed of going to the Amazon. Growing up in the Bronx there wasn't a whole lot of wild life, except for some squirrels and some sparrows.
Choosing my Amazon Adventure - Arriving in Quito
The amazing Amazon and Adventure life. A dream come true for me. As a child I always dreamed of going to the Amazon . Growing up in the Bronx there wasn't a whole lot of wild life, except for some squirrels and some sparrows. I loved the outdoors and mother nature. I went to Cuba when I was fifteen, lived in Hawaii for twenty-one years, served in …
City tour of Quito
In the morning I was picked up by Roberto from Adventure Life and went on a tour of Quito with ten other people. The tour was excellent and Roberto was very informative. We saw many churches, and other places of interest. Of course after drinking so much water finding banos was also a high priority. Ha Ha! After I was returned to the Hostal, I …
Into the Amazon
The next morning I took a taxi to the airport, and was greeted by another staff that had my ticket and showed me the way to the VIP room. There I met my fellow adventures, that would be going to Sacha Lodge. Some were also from New Jersey where I currently reside. Everyone seemed to bond right away. We then boarded a plane for the short ride to …
Swimming with Piranhas
After checking out my room and taking some pictures of birds, I headed to the dock to be fitted for some lovely rain boots. It took awhile for all of the group to find a size that fit, but we did.
Then since it was quite warm and humid we all jumped into the lake. So who cares if there were piranhas in them. After a few minutes one lady started …
Anaconda Spotting, Kapok Tree Climb
I had a six am wake up call, since the animals don't sleep in. The bed and the room was very comfortable, the jungle sounds so loud it was like someone had the volume on high. Monkeys, birds and very noisy frogs. I was so tired I would have slept through an earthquake. At six there was a light tap on my door, I popped out of bed eager to get …
Canopy Walkway and more Rainforest Discovery
No problem getting up at five. However a little nervous about going up on the wakway, especially after some brave women I met said it was scary.
I ate a light breakfast, filled up my water bottles and off we went. Good thing we got an early start, since it was hundred and climbing. The humidity was also very high. Our clothes were soaked by the …
Venture out of the Rainforest
In the morning at 6:30 our luggage was picked up. Thank goodness for the waterproof bags, since it was raining buckets.
After breakfast we headed for the dock where we were given ponchos. A short ride across the lake brought us to a very soggy, muddy hike to the Napo river. There we were given dry ponchos.
It was a long wet ride to Coco and we …
The next morning Luis from Adventure life came to pick me up for our tour. He was very polite and was able to answer most of my questions of which I had many. After a hair raising trip over the Pan American Highway we made it to the Animal Market on time. This is were animals are bought and sold. Many a reluctant pig went squealing off with their …
Birding Tour. Return home.
Last day in Quito.
My plane didn't leave till seven thirty P.M., so I decided to go on another adventure. I found something called San Jorge Ecolodge. It was at the 10,400 foot level above Quito. I called them and they picked me up in the morning.
I went on a birding tour with Jorge, a lady who worked at the U.N. and a man checking the place …
