La Selva Amazon Ecolodge & Spa , Ecuador

One of the first Amazon rainforest lodges in Ecuador, the award winning La Selva was completely remodeled and reopened in July of 2012 and has since become the premier ecolodge in the Ecuadorian Amazon.

La Selva Amazon Ecolodge & Spa is located within the Yasuní Biosphere Reserve in a rainforest paradise bordering Yasuni National Park in one of the most biodiverse areas of the planet, home to literally millions of species of plants, animals, birds and insects. The Lodge overlooks the glassy waters of Lake Garzacocha.


The lodge has nineteen spacious suites, including three scenic suites with a view of Lake Garzacocha and roomy family suites for those who have brought their children along on their jungle adventure. The Scenic and Superior Suites include rainforest showers, private balconies and great panoramic views, while the Family Suites include extra-spacious bathrooms, hammocks and a tub on a private porch. La Selva features a large, airy restaurant and lounge, with a complete bar and wraparound window over the lagoon. In addition to the restaurant, La Selva has a complete bar serving cold beer, soft drinks, juices and cocktails. Lodge facilities include a 38-meter-high observation tower.

All La Selva programs are deep Amazon experiences with excursions guided by native guides and bilingual naturalist guides. The Amazon rainforest jungle offers opportunities for cultural exchange, photography, adventure, hiking, relaxation, birdwatching and wildlife observation. The area surrounding La Selva has perhaps the largest list of bird species in the neo-tropics due to its ideal location on the border of Yasuni National Park. Thanks to biodiversity and top-notch guides, you will have the chance to see unique flora and fauna. Excursions include jungle walks, visit to a parrot clay lick, night canoe rides, cultural visits to local communities. All programs include meals and guided excursions.
