La Selva Jungle Lodge

About La Selva Jungle Lodge

A secluded luxury eco-lodge situated in the midst of the thriving Amazonian rainforest; the romantic La Selva Lodge has a real focus on eco-tourism and protecting the natural environment which surrounds them. However, this does not mean that luxury has been forgotten about, from the gourmet food served in the restaurant to the luxury bed linens used in each of the suites it is quite easy to forget that you are in the middle of the Amazon.

La Selva Jungle Lodge is thoroughly involved in the local community who live around the lodge (the Pilchi); they are currently building a motorised canoe for the community and have been successful in preventing the cutting down of trees, hunting and fishing in the local area. They are also giving the Pilchi a monthly wage as well as being heavily involved in building a new school for the area.

There are plenty of activities to get involved in, in addition to simply exploring the local surroundings.
