La Selva surpassed our expectations. The facility is rustic but comfortable and the location on the edge of a gorgeous lagoon is magical. We loved the canoe rides along the narrow winding streams that leave the lagoon. Our guides (Rodrigo and Darwin) were absolutely wonderful -- so knowledgeable as well as attentive and kind. The chef did a fantastic job....

we were in Ecuador in may and it was hot and humid. We should have brought lighter clothes and definitely a better flashlight for night walks. We were very lucky in our guides or maybe they were all great. We were exposed to all facets of the rain forest and the guides worked hard to make our time with them...

Thank you so much for your kind words regarding your experience in the jungle. You can be sure that all our guides are of equal level and although some even have certain features you could say that make them even more special, it would be impossible to choose ¨the best¨ guide at La Selva.

Wow! What a great trip and fabulous experience. We left Florida at 90 Degrees and mosquitoes & arrived at La Selva at 80 Degrees and no mosquitoes.(the leaves from the plants falling into the lake make it too acidic for mosquito larvae) The lodge people picked us up at the airport in Coca and took up to the river for...
