La Selva was one of the first rainforest lodges of its kind in all of Ecuador, paving the way for the unique brand of high-end, sustainable eco-tourism that has contributed so much to the preservation of the rainforest and many other delicate ecosystems throughout the region. It has been at the forefront of both preservation and rainforest luxury, making it the ideal place for unwinding. 

However, "luxury" is manifested in what matters most: Rainforest exploring. Here, you will take in everything this alluring land has to offer. The approach is authentic and insightful, with the best guides in the region who are, without exaggerating, “synchronized” with the jungle. Hence, get an up-close encounter with this mosaic of life forms. Watch how tiny ants can impact a whole acre of territory or witness a huge tapir being chased by a jaguar. Perhaps you'll even be lucky enough to watch an epic fight between an anaconda and a caiman.

The insights are cultural as well. Experience unique programs coordinated with local indigenous communities. Have the chance to appreciate their lifestyle and their harmony with nature. Surely, this view will give you a great impression for you to take home and onwards into your daily life. On this true Amazon Safari, we welcome to one of the best luxury Amazon lodges in Ecuador.

As for the lodge itself, its individual suites have been constructed using techniques adopted by native forest communities, with no expense spared on the level of comfort they provide. Panoramic views, thatched roofs, four-poster beds, river-view balconies and locally-inspired spa products in the cabin bathrooms are just the beginning of the story.

La Selva prides itself on responsible and sustainable ecotourism in every way, from the locally sourced ingredients in each carefully prepared meal to the educational programs and excursions run by specialist guides. Talking about food, you will be offered a complete range of it – from the delicious and “friendly” flavors of the international cuisine to the most typical and exotic ones. A guide may suddenly stop you mid-excursion, start chopping a rotting stump to reveal a nest of lemon ants (quite a delicacy), or a friendlier “challenge” may be trying a deep-fried piranha. Although it is a matter of taste, we at Surtrek enjoy them – at least when Jose – the chef – prepares them.

With a prime location just off the banks of the Napo River, an abundance of exotic plant and animal life can be enjoyed with minimal effort, while the nearby observation tower will offer once-in-a-lifetime views across the vast rainforest canopy. All this and more cement La Selva’s rightful place as one of the leading luxury eco-lodges anywhere in Ecuador, and indeed South America.

All of this makes a formidable setting for any kind of trip. Think of the Amazon with children, as La Selva is a family-friendly lodge that includes special programs for children. Or consider a honeymoon in the Amazon, which is easily possible here. In fact, very few places are able to truly support this kind of experience. 

 La Selva definitely has inspired other lodges and tourism in this area. But what's more admirable is how it has inspired its guests. And it will continue to improve, evolve, adapt… Maybe this time, you will allow us to be part of this beautiful cycle.
