Join this extension for a pristine rainforest adventure in the heart of the Amazon. Many believe the tropical rainforest is the most complex ecosystem on the earth. Explore its many facets alongside expert local guides. Walk through primary forest trails, paddle dugout canoes through the myriad of streams and lakes and of course, experience at close range the sights and sounds of the amazing Amazonian wildlife, truly a birder's paradise. Located close to the equator, it is pleasant to visit at any time of the year.
We offer excellent lodging for your Amazon experience, La Selva Jungle Lodge. It offer a wide range of excursions so you may choose your daily activities. The lodge offers accommodations built in the traditional thatch roof style, mosquito netted beds and private bathrooms. Wonderful dining experiences and amazing lakeside jungle views await.
La Selva Jungle Lodge
La Selva which in Spanish means “the jungle” is necessarily remote but one of the most easily reached destinations in Ecuador's Amazon and ideal for avid travelers requiring fixed travel dates.
Located about sixty miles downriver from the town of Coca, La Selva Jungle Lodge is built in native design: rustic, authentic and comfortable. The 17 private bungalows are made entirely of secondary rainforest material designed to blend into the jungle. Each has a private bathroom with an unexpected amenity — hot water! There is a spacious but cozy bar with a wrap around view of the gorgeous lake, and a grand dining room, also with a cone-shaped gigantic, thatched roof.
Note: The Yasuni National Park fee of approximately $25 US is not included and must be paid locally.
