La Selva Lodge

A Beautiful Ecolodge in the Heart of the Ecuadorian Jungle. Wake up in the Yasuni Biosphere Reserve and be amazed by the fascinating Amazon Rainforest. 

The La Selva Lodge is located on Lake Garzacocha, situated in the Ecuadorian section of the Amazon, on the outskirts of the Yasuni Biosphere Reserve, which teems with thousands of beautiful and endemic plant and animal species. The lodge has 19 spacious and comfortable suites, three of them which are scenic suites and have a

spectacular view of the lake. If you are a family, the lodge has roomy family suites, perfect for children. Private balconies, special rainforest showers and panoramic views are the highlights of the scenic and superior suites, while extra-large bathrooms, private plunge pool and hammocks are included in the Family Suites. 

The local traditions that have been used by jungle natives for centuries, served as the design inspiration for the lodge. Since the La Selva lodge is an ecolodge, it does not have air conditioning. The rooms, however, are big with plenty of shade so that they stay cool and breezy. Each room relies on its careful design to keep cool. There is a ceiling fan that circulates the air. 

For a relaxing break, the La Selva Lodge has its very own spa where guests can indulge in some pampering after a day of exploring the jungle. The Amazon rainforest is the perfect backdrop for any spa treatment. Traveller's often come back from the lodge praising the local gastronomy. The restaurant at the jungle lodge uses fresh, local produce for its daily meals. The food is presented in an an exquisite fashion for an exceptional dining experience. The use of locally sourced food is just another way in which the lodge is committed to sustainable practices.

There are a number of daily jungle excursions at the La Selva lodge. Guests will keep their days busy by climbing the lodge’s 125 ft observation tower for spectacular views of the rainforest and visiting one of the clay licks, home to brightly coloured macaws and parrots. To learn more about local culture and the indigenous way of life, guests can visit the Kichwa Community. If you're active and enjoy hiking, there are a few hiking trails around the lodge, such as the Marmoset Trail, which winds through the part of the jungle which is home to the Pygmy Marmoset – the world’s smallest monkey.


Note: This tour can be organized either before or after your Ecuador Amazon Cruise. You can also combine the La Selva Lodge with a Galapagos Tour

What people are saying about the La Selva Lodge

La Selva Lodge Testimonial
Going to La Selva was an experience that we will not forget. It was our hope to experience a “deep” jungle environment in the heart of Amazonia. We were able to do so and found it to be even better than we expected and hoped it to be.
