La Selva is "simply one of the world’s best birding sites."Ned Wheatley, Author of Where to Watch Birds in South America
The area surrounding La Selva has perhaps the largest species list of birds in the neo-tropics due to its perfect location on the border of Yasuni National Park. This forest is full of myriad species of birds and there are wondrous sights and sounds for all.
Get ready for the birding experience of a lifetime with our local native birding guides and bilingual natural guides. The native guides speak minimal English, but know the name of all the birds, and more importantly, how to find them and their calls.
Do you want your breakfast at 4 am so that you can be in the middle of the forest by daybreak? No problem.
Do you want your lunch delivered in the forest? We can do that, too. You can also go birdwatching at your leisure during your stay from the lookout point on top of our bar- restaurant or from your very own cabana.
Come to the place where the Long-tailed Potoo was first seen, where the Ochre Striped Ant-pitta and the Cocha Antshrike were first documented; come to the world capital of the Zig-zag Heron.
Come to the place where world-reknowned birding guide and author Ned Wheatley has stated in Where to Watch Birds in South America that La Selva is "simply one of the world’s best birding sites."
