Luxury Amazon Lodge in Ecuador

La Selva Amazon Ecolodge was one of the first Amazon rainforest lodges in Ecuador.

The lodge is located in a rainforest paradise in one of the most biodiverse areas of the planet.

Day 1
Transfer from your hotel to the Quito airport is available for those guests who need it. At the airport, a La Selva representative will help you with your luggage and tickets. After a short (35 minute) flight to Coca, you will be met by another English-speaking representative of La Selva Amazon Ecolodge, who will welcome you to Coca, help you with your luggage and transfer you and your fellow guests to the pier, where the motorized canoe is waiting.

La Selva Lodge is located about two hours from Coca by motorized canoe. The canoe is covered, in case of inclement weather such as rain or strong sunshine. The ride itself is fun and interesting! A box lunch is provided for guests on the ride. The motorized canoe cannot go into the lagoon where the lodge is located, so you will disembark on the river for a short walk and a ride in another, smaller canoe. Your luggage will be handled for you.

Once you reach the lodge, there is a welcome cocktail and brief orientation meeting. Then you’ll be shown to your spacious rooms and given the chance to rest and explore a bit before dinner at 7:30. During dinner, your group and guide will discuss the activities for the following day.

After dinner, depending on the weather and the will of the group, there may be a short activity such as a night wildlife walk or canoe ride near the lodge to see some wildlife. Many guests prefer to relax in the lounge with a cold drink from the bar or have a soothing massage in the spa!

Days 2 & 3

Breakfast is served early because there is so much to see and do! There are a number of activities that you might do, including a visit to the parrot clay lick, a trip to a local community, or an excursion to the observation tower to see birds and monkeys. What activity you do will depend on many factors, including the weather and what the group wants to do

If you do not wish to do the morning activity, you are under no obligation to do so. Many guests prefer to remain in our comfortable lodge and relax. A delicious lunch is served in our dining room at 12:30. After lunch, guests can try their hand at fishing for piranhas, take a nap or read a book during the hottest hours of the day.

Afternoon activities tend to be more low-key than morning ones. You might go for a canoe ride around the lagoon or take a short trail to look for pygmy marmosets. Again, the activity will be decided at the last moment by the guide, depending on conditions.

A gourmet dinner awaits in our dining room as afternoon turns into evening. After dinner, depending on the weather and the will of the group, there may be a short activity such as a night wildlife walk or canoe ride near the lodge to see enjoy some wildlife spotting. Many guests prefer to relax in the lounge with a cold drink from the bar or have a soothing massage in the spa!

On your last evening, you will be asked to pay your bill in case you had any extras, such as alcoholic drinks or a massage. You’ll also leave tips if you wish for the staff and guides. You may use your credit cards. You’ll also be asked to kindly fill out a comment card so that La Selva can improve their service.

Day 4

Although you must depart the lodge early in order to get to Coca in time for your flight, breakfast will be served before you leave. You’ll go out the way you came: a canoe ride, followed by a short walk, and then a two-hour ride on the motorized canoe to Coca. An English-speaking representative will accompany you. Once you reach Coca, you will be taken to the airport, checked in and directed to the waiting room for your return flight to Quito.

La Selva Amazon Ecolodge has eighteen spacious suites, including some scenic suites with a view of Lake Garzacocha and roomy family suites for those who have brought their children along on the jungle adventure. The Scenic and Superior Suites include exclusive rainforest showers, private balconies and great panoramic views, while the Family Suites include extra-spacious bathrooms, hammocks and a hot tub on a private porch.

The design of the suites is inspired by local homes used by the natives for generations: the airy, shady layout keeps things cool even in the hottest hours of the day. In the bathrooms, amenities such as hairdryers and shampoo, conditioner, soap and a sewing kit are included. Hot showers, ceiling fans and electricity are provided in each suite.

At La Selva Lodge, they are deeply committed to sustainable ecotourism and keeping their impact on the environment to a minimum. Therefore, they do not have air conditioning in the rooms. There are, however, large windows and a ceiling fan which keeps the air in the suites circulating.
