Dear visitors.

IMPORTANT. The transportation takes you to the town of Boca de Sabalos, then our boat picks you up there to take you to Sabalos Lodge.

To make your trip easier it’s recommended to let us know the boat you took, so we know when your boat will arrive at town to send our boat.

In case you cannot call us. You can easily ask the person from the boat tickets to let us know, or when you arrive at the Boca de Sabalos dock, they ask the person who sells tickets in town to call us, our boat will arrive in a few minutes to pick you up.

We do not recommend walking to the lodge, because there are 2 kilometers of walking. Better to contact us and our boat will pick you up.
