La Selva Amazon Ecolodge & Spa lies in a rainforest paradise bordering Ecuador's Yasuni National Park, one of the most biodiverse areas on the planet.
The lodge is located in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest, just off the Napo River, which eventually flows eastward and joins the mighty Amazon on its way to the Atlantic Ocean. Our lodge is within the Yasuní Biosphere Reserve and next to Yasuní National Park. This region is home to literally millions of species of plants, animals, birds, and insects.
We are located about five hours from Quito, the capital city of Ecuador, via a series of flights, canoe trips, and hikes. There are no roads to get to the lodge, and the nearest city is Coca (Francisco de Orellana). From Coca, the best way to get to the lodge is by a two-hour motorized canoe ride down the Napo River. On the way, you will see your first glimpses of the Amazon rainforest and you can appreciate the houses and way of living of the local people as they go on about their daily routines by the riverside.
