An Ecuador Amazon lodge like no other
Located just outside the Yasuní National Park and within the Yasuní Biosphere Reserve, La Selva Lodge is perfect for travellers seeking their ideal Amazon experience — whether they are six or sixty. A luxury resort in the heart of the rainforest, everyone will find something to love.
In the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon Rainforest
Our lodge is located on the north bank of the Napo River, which eventually flows eastward and joins the mighty Amazon on its way to the Atlantic Ocean. It takes about five hours to travel from your hotel in Quito to your jungle suite, by plane, motorized canoe, by foot, and arriving in a silent paddle canoe.
With you every step of the way
At Quito airport, a member of our team will be on hand to help you check in. Upon arrival at Coca airport, your guide will take care of you, taking you to our operation centre and then downriver by motorized canoe to the lodge itself. We can also arrange flights and transfers. Just get in touch.
Guided explorations with experts
Throughout your time with us, you’ll be accompanied by an expert naturalist guide as well as a native guide. Both are experienced, kind and engaging interpreters of the fascinating ecosystem which they know so well. Find out more about our Amazon guides.
Bar & Restaurant
From dawn to dusk, you can always count on a member of staff to help you with whatever you need in terms of food and beverages. Our bar is fully-stocked with local and international beers, liquors, and gins. Feel free to start a tab and pay the night before you leave.
One can connect to the internet at the main lodge and close-by, as well as receiving a weaker signal in your suite.
Boots & Ponchos
Free rubber boots and rain ponchos — essential rainforest gear! — are available for all our guests.
Wellness and Spa
La Selva features a unique spa, where specialized treatments create a heightened sense of relaxation and connection with the amazing wonders of the forest. We also offer intimate yoga sessions and classes on the jetty overlooking the waters of the lake… Ready to find peace amid the breathing heart of the forest..?
passion for flavour
At La Selva we take great pride in the quality of the meals and beverages we serve. Our talented chefs use fresh ingredients and local produce for daily meal preparation, promising a genuine experience of Ecuadorian and international gastronomy. Fresh juices, local produce and fruit are part of our ongoing commitment to support local communities. We are happy to accommodate any special diet whether you are vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and kosher. Please let us know in advance of your preferences.
