We recently posted a new feature story on touring the Amazon Rainforest region of Ecuador. You read a lot more about jungle tours in Peru and Brazil—partly because they are marketed more heavily—but there is more to Ecuador than the high Andes and the Galapagos.
Our writer explored the area through the unique Sacha Lodge. Read the feature to get the full story, but this is one of those examples of someone with money buying up land to keep it pristine rather than using it for raw materials or farming. Like Pumalin Park in Chile, the 5,000 acres that make up the lodge’s playground are an investment in nature and preservation.
We’ll also have a full review of the lodge itself posted in a couple weeks, along with other additions to our reviews of luxury hotels in Ecuador.
