If they say a change is as good as a rest, after Sabalo Lodge you'll be able to take on the world. Just getting there was an amazing Adventure, from Sierpe, we took a long river boat along the wide Rio Sierpe, lots of floating plants in the water, then he hung a left and we twisted and turned through a snake work of mangrove rivers, dodging low trees, monkeys and sloths and large birds of every description watching from above, how the boat driver even remembered where to go was beyond me, it took about an hour, absolutely amazing, if you want jungle, Sabalo is THE place. After finally docking we walked along a trail and onto the beautiful landscaped ground of Sabalo, I mean we were so far from anywhere, and there it was, this beautiful tranquil grassed property buried in the jungle, little cabins, a main lodge, the sounds, smells and sights of a place so far removed from civilization, a trail along beside it with Indian kids riding their horses, they give part of their profits to the local village school, the meals were filling and great, Holly and Dan are the most interesting hosts, if you want to get away from it all this is the place, bar none! I'll be back the next time I need an escape from the civilized world.
