La Selva Jungle Lodge

Tomáš Safarik

Private Consultant
"The most comfortable of Ecuador’s Amazon lodges, a place to unwind and explore a unique natural world. It’s the Amazon with a private hot tub and jungle spa. "

Stay at the La Selva

Travel isn’t just about the destination, it’s also the journey. Like paddling down the Napo River in a canoe, past monkeys, tapirs and otters, on route to a secluded ecolodge in the Amazon. A wild soundtrack now surrounds you, as you ease into a jungle spa. Next it’s to your bamboo suite, where you lounge in a hammock overlooking the lake, or lounge in the hot tub. The Amazon is your destination and a stay at the most luxurious all all Ecuador’s Amazon lodges. It comes with a journey of sustainability too.

Location

You’re deep in the Amazon here, in the Yasuni Biosphere Reserve on Lake Garzacocha. So don’t expect an easy and quick journey. First fly from Quito to Coca, then go down the Napo River in a motorised boat for two hours, before your canoe ride to the lodge. It’s spectacular, albeit quite time consuming.

Rooms

Some call them luxury suites but remember this is the Amazon and a lodge in the wild. So don’t expect hotel-style luxury. It’s comfortable, sleeping in a spacious and airy bamboo suite, with a hot tub on your private porch. We like the sustainable approach to construction and the upmarket feel of the entire lodge.

Who is it for

People who want a genuine Amazon experience while still retaining a few luxuries. A solid choice for families with older kids, plus the best option if you need to convince your partner to visit the Amazon. Given the time you must invest to get here (and get away), it’s not worth staying for only a couple of nights. Four nights is an immersive experience.

Amenities & Activities

La Selva isn’t as strong as Napo or Sacha Lodge in terms of guiding and activities. It’s more Amazon-light in this regard, although you still have great walks, canopy platforms, boat trips and night excursions. You’ll stay busy in the morning and afternoon, then rest during the midday heat.
