Located just outside the Yasuní National Park and within the Yasuní Biosphere Reserve, La Selva Lodge is perfect for all sorts of adventurous travelers. A luxury resort in the heart of the rainforest, everyone will find something to love!
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 eco lodge in the Ecuadorian Amazon. La Selva Jungle Lodge and resort is located in a rainforest paradise in one of the most biodiverse areas of the planet.
At La Selva, your day is centered on our excursions, in which you and your group, accompanied by an English-speaking naturalist guide, explore the lagoon and the trails around the lodge.
These excursions are included in the price of your stay. There are literally thousands of plants and animals that you can see near the lodge and lagoon! Our guests regularly see parrots, monkeys, toucans, caimans, frogs and much, much more.
Birdwatching is exceptional at La Selva. Located in the Yasuní Biosphere Reserve, the area around our lodge has been shown by ornithological studies to contain more species of birds than any other region in Ecuador, and more than both the entire USA and Canada combined.
Birdwatchers come from all over the world to see tanagers, parrots, toucans, parakeets, woodpeckers, hoatzins and countless other species. Special birdwatching tours are available.
At La Selva, we believe in responsible eco-tourism and mutually beneficial relationships with local communities. Our guests have the unique opportunity to interact with local wildlife as well as local people in a responsible, sustainable way.
