Where is La Selva Jungle Lodge?
La Selva Amazon Ecolodge is located in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest.
We are located just off the Napo River, which eventually flows eastward and joins the mighty Amazon on its way to the Atlantic Ocean. Our lodge is within the Yasuní Biosphere Reserve and next to the Yasuní National Park. This region is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth, home to literally millions of species of plants, animals, birds and insects.
We are located about five hours from Quito, the capital city of Ecuador, via a series of flights, canoe trips and walks.
There are no roads to get to the lodge and the nearest city is Coca (Francisco de Orellana). From here, the best way to get to the lodge is by a two hour motorized canoe ride down the Napo River. You will travel down river aboard a locally crafted canoe, experiencing a typical ride to the lodge just like the locals. On the way you will be able to see your first glimpses of the Amazon rainforest and you can appreciate the houses and way of living of the local people as they go on about their daily routines by the riverside.
