How to Find Us in Ecuador

Adventure awaits

Sacha Samay It is located in the foothills at an elevation of approximately 397 meters above sea level, which means it is not as hot here and there are no mosquitoes like in the flat rainforest. You can swim in the local river without worry. Malaria, yellow fever, and dengue fever are not present in our area.

In our facility, we have drinking water from a mountain spring, shared flush toilets, electricity, and the option to pay for WiFi connection, which works on sunny days (the signal may be lost during storms). Accommodation is provided in simple wooden rooms with three beds, each with a pillow, blanket, towel, and mosquito net.
