Out of the 7 accommodations I stayed in while visiting Ecuador, La Selva is the only one that I feel is truly a 5 star. All places had great service but our room at La Selva was large with a comfortable couch and large veranda with chairs and table. The bathroom had 2 sinks and rain shower. The room was...

When one arrives to La Selva you instantly feel a different type of energy in the air, almost like you immediately begin to recharge and kickstarts your senses. We like to further this experience by letting the jungle into your rooms by using screened doors and windows so the jungle sounds linger in. It is truly an experience like no...

Fantastic lodge, food and guides. The position on the lake allowed for serene kayaking between guided nature walks. Our guides Dan and Henry were fantastic. Guided walks take place early morning and evening. We highly recommend La Selva to anyone considering which lodge to choose.
