“La Selva is constantly working to protect the pristine environment that surrounds the lodge. Our changes through 2020 will reinforce our focus on being more sustainable and preserving the overall well-being of the Amazon Rainforest. Since 2002, we have worked to transform La Selva into a sustainable high-end Eco-lodge. Using long-lasting and ecologically friendly materials for its foundations such as the combination of cultivated bamboo. The main structure of the observation tower and the lodge is constructed with high-strength steel that needs to be serviced the least compared to wood that rots quickly in the amazon due to the high humidity. The Amazon rainforest is our home, however, it does not belong to us; it has been home to indigenous communities since long before the Spanish conquerors decided to descend from the mountains in search of the legendary city of El Dorado. The native communities of the Amazon are our neighbors and partners in the conservation of the home we all love.” – La Selva

When night falls, enjoy fine cuisine in the restaurant, prepared by popular 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, rain forest showers and lake views. The sounds of the rain forest soothe you to sleep at night, and the singing of birds awaken you in the morning.
