Protecting our environment

Sani Isla is included in the list of the 100 best sustainable destinations in 2019, granted by the Green Destination committee, becoming the only destination within this list for the entire Ecuadorian Amazon. Being included in this list is high prestige as these destinations are actively portraying world leadership in the protection of its panoramic views, natural habitats, and wildlife, as well as respect for animals and indigenous communities, becoming a standard for sustainable tourism development for other countries.

Sani Isla has shown this potential for which it has concurrently won the Best of Nature award as well!
