La Selva Jungle Lodge
3 nights/4 days from $1,215*
Ecuadorian Amazon Eco-Adventure
Combine a visit to the legendary Galapagos Islands with a stay at La Selva Amazon Jungle Lodge for a truly unique and extraordinary wildlife tour.
Overlooking the glassy waters of Lake Garzacocha, recently refurbished main lodge and restaurant is sure to be a favorite spot. You can watch birds and other wildlife as you sip a cocktail from the fully stocked bar in comfort, or climb a few steps to look for wildlife from the observation tower.
As night falls, you’ll enjoy fine cuisine in the restaurant, prepared by the lodge’s famous chefs, as the birds and animals of the Amazon serenade you with their unique song.
The breezy, stylish cabanas are inspired by native bamboo designs. Many have hot tubs, rainforest showers and lake views. The sounds of the rainforest soothe you to sleep at night, and the singing of birds awakens you in the morning.
Even though the lodging and level of service offered at La Selva is considerably more luxurious than other lodges in the Ecuadorian Amazon, competitive price makes it an exceptional value.
Day 1 - Arrival at the Lodge: Transfer from your hotel to the Quito airport is available for those guests who need it. At the airport, a La Selva representative will help you with your luggage and tickets. After a short (35 minute) flight to Coca, you will be met by another English-speaking representative of La Selva Amazon Ecolodge, who will welcome you to Coca, help you with your luggage and transfer you and your fellow guests to the pier, where our motorized canoe is waiting.
La Selva Lodge is located about two hours from Coca by motorized canoe. The canoe is covered, in case of inclement weather such as rain or strong sunshine. The ride itself is fun and interesting! A box lunch is provided for guests on the ride. The motorized canoe cannot go into the lagoon where the lodge is located, so you will disembark on the river for a short walk and a ride in another, smaller canoe. Your luggage will be handled for you.
Once you reach the lodge, there is a welcome cocktail and brief orientation meeting. Then you’ll be shown to your spacious rooms and given the chance to rest and explore a bit before dinner at 7:30. During dinner, your group and guide will discuss the activities for the following day.
After dinner, depending on the weather and the will of the group, there may be a short activity such as night wildlife walk or canoe ride near the lodge to see some wildlife. Many guests prefer to relax in the lounge with a cold drink from the bar or have a soothing massage in the spa!
Days Two and Three: Exploring the Amazon Rainforest!
Breakfast is served early because there is so much to see and do! There are a number of activities that you might do, including a visit to the parrot clay lick, a trip to a local community, or an excursion to the observation tower to see birds and monkeys.
What activity you do will depend on many factors, including the weather and what the group wants to do. If you do not wish to do the morning activity, you are under no obligation to do so. Many guests prefer to remain in our comfortable lodge and relax. A delicious lunch is served in our dining room at 12:30. After lunch, guests can try their hand at fishing for piranhas, take a nap or read a book during the hottest hours of the day. Afternoon activities tend to be more low-key than morning ones. You might go for a canoe ride around the lagoon, take a short trail to hopefully see pygmy marmosets, or visit the nearby butterfly farm. Again, the activity will be decided at the last moment by the guide, depending on conditions.
A gourmet dinner is served in our dining room as afternoon turns into evening. After dinner, depending on the weather and the will of the group, there may be a short activity such as night wildlife walk or canoe ride near the lodge to see some wildlife. Many guests prefer to relax in the lounge with a cold drink from the bar or have a soothing massage in the spa! On your last evening, you will be asked to clear up your bill in case you had any extras, such as alcoholic drinks or a massage. You may also leave tips if you wish for the staff and guides. (Credit cards accepted)
Day Four: Return to Quito
Although you must depart the lodge early in order to get to Coca in time for your flight, breakfast will be served before you leave. You’ll go out the way you came: a canoe ride, followed by a short walk, and then a two-hour ride on the motorized canoe to Coca. An English-speaking representative will accompany you. Once you reach Coca, you will be taken to the airport, checked in and directed to the waiting room for your return flight to Quito. That will be the end of your Amazon Rainforest adventure!
