Absolutely loved our time at La Selva. Our guide, Daniel, was wonderful...knowledgeable, informative and easy going. The hikes and time on the the lake were fascinating and it is really amazing to experience the sights, sounds and smells of the jungle from this unique perspective. The observation tower and the canoe trip to the other lake were highlights for activities....

Just being in the jungle made me instantly relax. Arriving a La Selva fully lived up to my expectations. My room was luxurious and comfortable and I had no issues with insects. There are no glass windows. Instead a fine net that keep all bugs out but let the sound of the jungle sing you to sleep a wake you...

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.

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your review with the rest of the TripAdvisor traveling community! Yes that's right, La Selva is situated on a private lagoon called Garzacocha, actually named after the many Hoatzin birds that make their home on the shores by the water. The balcony of the lodge makes for great bird watching and animal sightings! Thanks...

The food was excellent and the staff very accomodating. The rooms were spacious but there is only a large ceiling fan for cooling. It is the Amazon, and it is hot and humid. Mosquitos were not a big problem. The nature walks and canoe tours were interesting and we saw a large variety of birds and insects. There was even...

Dear Marshall, You are right, there are no competitions when it comes to animal sightings, but you can count on seeing many unexpected and extraordinary things! La Selva's location is special because we are located in the Yasuni Biosphere Reserve and not far from Yasuni National Park.

We have just finished a 4 day stay and can't rave enough about the experience. We had a room with a view over the lagoon, the rooms were simple but offered everything you need.

We stayed at La Selva for the last leg of our honeymoon, and I don't think we could have asked for a better experience. The lodge is the perfect mix of jungle adventure and relaxing resort.

Impeccable 5-star accommodation in the middle of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Dan, our English naturalist, and Henry, our Ecuadorian guide were the dream team. Somehow, any time of day or night, Henry was able to spot an astonishingly exotic array of animals with uncanny precision. Dan would then draw on his encyclopedic knowledge of the rainforest and regale us with interesting...
