High praise for the staff who looked after us so well, especially our guides, david and enrique. The food and accommodations were excellent. We enjoyed the wild life, the canoe rides, the jungle walks. We were surprised by the lack of mosquitoes but not surprised by the ever present humidity. To get the most out of the trip you have...

Dear Brian, Thank you so much for your feedback and tips for other travelers looking to visit the Ecuadorian Amazon. No matter where anyone may desire to travel, you should always have an open mind.

We had the most incredible four days at La Selva. Absolutely serene setting on jungle lagoon. Exceptional guides that did fabulous jobs in finding wildlife and explaining wildlife and eco-botany of the jungle. All guided tours were incredibly fascinating. Excellent service from meeting at the airport, to taxi boats to guides to hotel and restaurant staff. Excellent, excellent food from... More

We had a wonderful time at La Selva. As all other reviewers have commented -- it is remote, hot, lovely, and interesting. The naturalist guides really make the stay. Our guide, Paul, was great as was our native guide Jose. But we didn't hear anything bad about any of the guides. The food was good, the rooms were nice. We... More

It's an adventure just getting there - a flight into Coca, then a short bus ride to the docks where we boarded a long, skinny motor boat to travel upriver 2.5 hours, then a disembarkation with a short walk to a canoe, where we travelled up a jungle river to La Selva.
