This experience is worth the time and energy it takes to get to a remote getaway that highlights the pristine beauty of the Amazon jungle. The lodge on the lake is breath-taking when you emerge from the narrow water-way by canoe.

What a beautiful place. After a 2 1/2 hour motorized canoe ride down the Napo river from Coca, a 15 walk through the jungle and a 15 minute paddle (by the guides) across the lake, we arrived at the lodge. The new owners have invested...More
We stayed at La Selva for three nights prior to our visit to the Galapagos Islands. We had a great time and it is a very beautiful place. The setting is beyond imagination, and the staff is attentive and friendly. Our guide, Jesus, was passionate...More

Not only were they knowledgeable and personable, Enrique has an almost superhuman ability to spot impossible to spot animals. The food was simply remarkable. The...More

The four days actually ends up being 2.5 days because day 1 you arrive in the late afternoon and much of that time is spent with an orientation and settling into your room. You will do an activity after dinner so really it is a half day.
Day 2 and 3 are full days of activities.
Day 4 is breakfast and then you depart.
But having said that we felt it was enough time to get a good overview of the nature and wildlife in the Amazon. If time and money were not a factor then one could always use an extra day, but we felt we did not miss out on anything with the 4 day/3 night program. Hope that helps
