We spent 4 days and 3 nights at La Selva and had an amazing experience. Our room was huge, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There was no A/C and the ceiling fan didn't do much to help us stay cool, but I guess that's part of being in the Amazon! We were very lucky to get Luis as a guide.... More

No TV or air-conditioning but that was NOT a problem. The rooms were great and so was the food and the staff. Interesting walking and canoe tours twice a day and the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. We also met interesting guests from other countries.

Wonderful experience from beginning to end. Everything is taken care of, from hotel pickup in Quito, flight to Coca, transfer to the motorboat, then canoe to the lodge.
