Not sure if this will help. We have only stayed at Kapawi. It is luxury in the jungle. The cabins are huge with wonderful porches that overlook the lake. The food was excellent. Guides were very good as well. We followed it by a Galapagos cruise. There was one couple on the boat that had been to Sacha. They liked it, but it sounded much more rustic. We have been to the rainforest 4 times in total. We saw the fewest animals at Kapawi. It might have just been luck though. That was our only disappointment if you look at it that way. It is a real adventure just getting there. They have many, many things to do. Rafting, fishing, hiking, birding and wildlife viewing, visiting nearby tribes. We even spent the night at a Shaman's house. It was gourmet camping. They set everything up. Nice sheets, pillows and wonderful food. The porters brought it all. There was an american actress ( I won't say who ) staying there and she was trying to cure her hip problems via the Shaman. We watched him do his drugs and then pray and dance, I guess you would call it, over her. I would definitely recommend it. It is very well run.

Connette,

Kapawi is my first choise, but our tour operator also sugested la selva.
After reading your comments, I think we might stick with Kapawi.
