Thank you for sharing your experience at La Selva. We do understand that the rainforest is a humid area, which is why we've provided cieling fans and dry boxes for each accommodation to protect electronics and have relief from the climate of the tropical forest. If you happen to be visiting, don't forget to ask for a massage or for...

I researched the tree lodges that seemed to be of similar caliber in the same area. They all looked darn good, but there were a few factors that made La Selva stand out. We chose the 5 day/4 night package. My wife and I flew the 30 minutes from Quito, were picked up at the small airport in Coca with...

Dear RyBo44, What a great account of your time at La Selva, thank you so much for sharing! It was a great read and reminded us of just how lucky we are to work with such a great guide like Rodrigo.

To get to this lodge we travelled by canoe through narrow waterways to the lagoon where the lodge is situated. The guides took us on walks and paddles each day and their knowledge was extensive. We walked in the jungle at night and floated on the lagoon in the evening to watch the stars. There was a huge tree with...

My husband and I loved our time at La Selva. While the food, accommodation, and service were terrific, what we really enjoyed were our knowledgable and helpful guides Paul and Medardo.

This lodge is true luxury, but deep in the rain forest on a beautiful lake. It's about a 3-hour trip from Coca first by motorized canoe, then paddling in a smaller canoe.

Our stay was a big disappointment. The lodge is so noisy. In the Quad buildings they share a common open ceiling, so you hear everything from next door. There are no windows just screens which is great, but you hear everything. We were first in a room facing the staff area, and it was so noisy we couldn't get any...

My husband's and my stay at La Selva was a "pinch me" experience. Simply magical.

Thank you so much for your review and insightful thoughts, like that of the hummingbirds. The Amazon is a magical place, but it is also very fragile.
