We visited Bahia during the dry season in September. The lush grounds were a beautiful change from the surrounding brown countryside. We had a lovely waterfront room with in a "teak" wood structure, literally ON the river (a plexiglass covered window in the floor allowed us to monitor the changes in the shore due to the tides). It was so relaxing sitting on the porch of our room, laying in the hammock and strolling the grounds, visiting the parrots, peacocks and the 140 year old Galapagos turtle. Breakfasts were plentiful and varied, always with fresh local fruits and different entrees. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. Don Alfredo was a joy to get to know and a perfect host. It was a short bus or taxi ride to the hustle and bustle of town.

Room Tip: Ask for a 1st floor river front room so you can get the "window" in the floor

I stayed on the cabins above the water and it was spectacular. I would return to Bahía only to be here! The shows were amazing and the food was so good I didn't remember meat! I love the views and the natural state, Don Perez the sloth, the birds and the flowers. It was very relaxing.

We went to the Saiananda Lodge for a friends birthday. This place was so beautiful and had an amazing assortment of beautiful plants. It had the most beautiful birds, peacocks, pigeon doves, macaws, and so many others I have never seen before. This place served the most delicious lunch. The owner was a very nice man who explained everything and showed us around. He answered our questions. This is somewhere everyone should visit if they have an opportunity.

Saiananda is a lovely hotel in a spiritual and quiet location at the border of the bay 1 km from the main bus station (or a couple of minutes by car) outside of Bahia de Caráquez. The hotel offers a very beautiful view over the bay which enables you to observe nature at close distance. The owner is very kind and caring and good at organizing day trips. Lovely food (vegetarian only); no alcohol.

It's a nice quiet place surrounded with nature, you can go with your family, alone or in couples. it's on the bay.
you can go in a boat ride to the heart island, across it. Cabins are above the water
The most delicious vegetarian meals ever...

Room Tip: Best ones on the bay side
