La Selva is a paradisiacal place that can be reached by motorized canoe first and then by rowing for about 3 hours where the adventure begins. The Lodge is on a lagoon, there are no mosquitoes because the water is acidic! Great advantage! The cabins are spacious, private and with balconies. The meals are excellent, the whole Lodge eats at the same time with your guide- there are two daily walks with a naturalist guide and what is more is bird watching- more than 350 species.



Day 1: Arrival at the Lodge.

A representative of La Selva will assist you at the Quito Airport with the check-up of your bags and your tickets. He will give you the shipping instructions.

After a short flight of 35 minutes to Coca, you will be attended by a representative of La Selva Ecolodge, he will welcome you to Coca, help you with your bags and transfer you along with the other guests to the dock, there will be waiting for our motorized canoe.

La Selva Lodge is located two hours from Coca by motorized canoe. The canoe is covered, in case of bad weather, as rain or strong sun. The trip itself is fun and interesting. The passengers will receive a box lunch during the journey. The motorized canoe will take you to the dock of the lodge, where you will disembark and make a short walk to take another small canoe with your hand luggage. We will take care of your luggage.

Once you arrive at the lodge, you will be welcomed with a cocktail and our lodge manager will give you a short orientation talk about the lodge and its facilities. Then you will be shown your room and have the opportunity to explore a little before dinner. During dinner, your group and the guide will arrange the activities for the next day.

After dinner, depending on the weather and the desire of the group, there could be short activities, such as a night walk or a canoe tour around the lodge to admire the wildlife. Many guests prefer to relax in the lounge accompanied by a cold drink or instead take a relaxing massage at the spa!

Day Two and Three: Exploring the Amazon Rainforest.

Breakfast is served very early since there is so much to see and do!

There are various activities that you could do, including a visit to the parrot lick, a visit to a native community, or a trip to the observation tower to see the birds and monkeys, just to mention some of the activities you can do. perform at La Selva Lodge.

The activities carried out will depend on various factors such as the climate and interests of the group. If you do not want to participate in any of the activities that the group will perform you can enjoy our comfortable lounge, bar or spa. Around half a day our chefs will delight you with the best gastronomy of the area with delicious national and international dishes. After lunch, you can read a book or enjoy a refreshing nap.

In the afternoon you can enjoy more discreet activities such as a pleasant canoe trip discovering the life that hides in the trees surrounding the beautiful Garzacocha lagoon, hiking in the lodge or other activities that will be agreed with your guide.

On the last night of your stay you can check your bar account, which can be canceled in cash or by credit card. If you wish you can leave your tips for the staff and guide tonight.
