La Selva Lodge

great for family fun!

Monkeys, parrots, piranhas and snakes. Need we say more?
Kids, parents, brothers, sisters, granddads, grannies, cousins, nephews, nieces and any other sort of relatives are welcome at La Selva Amazon Lodge! We’ve been creating memorable family moments for over a quarter century and we take great pride in being the most kid-friendly lodge in the Ecuadorian Amazon.


(2 adults + 1 child under 12 years old)



The jungle is a great place to be a kid! At La Selva Lodge you can kayak around the lake as you look for monkeys, climb up into our canopy tower to look for birds and swing on vines like Tarzan!
Kids get to do all of the regular great La Selva fun stuff, like hike in the jungle, ride the canoes around the lake and look for wildlife with trained, English-speaking guides.
But because we love them so much, kids get some extras, too!
– Special kit for adventurers
– Crayons for drawing pictures of their day
– Excursions with specially trained guides
– Magnifying glasses to see tiny wildlife close-up
Your kids are a bit finicky, you say? No problem! Our chefs have a lot of experience whipping up kid-friendly meals and snacks.

The La Selva Lodge

Junior Naturalist Program

We love our naturalist guides. They speak multiple languages, including English, Spanish and Parrot. They can spot frogs on the trail that look just like leaves until someone points them out. They can tell which species of monkey is overhead just by hearing it move through the trees. What could be cooler than a naturalist guide?

Kids who want to participate will be given a list of things to do, including learning bird calls, finding food in the jungle, and paddling the canoes. Those who are found worthy will receive a great honor: they’ll be an official La Selva Lodge Junior Naturalist Guide!


To preserve their safety and make it a good experience for our little passengers we have established the following policies:
 -We do not accept any children under the age of 3 under any circumstances.
– A private guide is mandatory when one or more children confirm between the ages of 3 and 6.
– An obligatory release must be signed before guests travel where the parents will be entirely responsible for their children when visiting La Selva between the ages of 3 and 6.
