Enjoy two full days of activities with your guides and fellow guests. All meals will be served at the lodge or in conjunction with your activities.
Each day, you will be able to participate in a variety of activities. The activities listed below are just a sample of the types of pursuits available, and these may be altered based on weather, time of year, or at La Selva’s discretion:
La Selva’s amazing observation tower allows you to climb 120-feet above the forest. Your naturalist and local guides will help you spot the colorful birds of the Amazon and maybe even native primates.
A walk to the beautiful lagoon of Mandi Cocha brings you to an Igapo Forest, meaning that the forest is temporarily flooded by black water. Different species of birds and even giant otters can be seen here.
Venture out on a motorized canoe to the parrot clay licks, one of the most fascinating displays of the wild world. Hundreds of parrots and parakeets gather here to eat the mineral rich soil, an important part of their diet.
Visit a local community center, where Amazonian Kichua women will share their life and culture.
Garzacocha Lagoon is one of the most beautiful spots in the Ecuadorian Amazon. There are many chances to see monkeys and birds, and sometimes families of squirrel monkeys join capuchins looking for food. The tremendous calls of howler monkeys can be heard in the afternoon, and the smallest monkey in the world, the pygmy marmoset, can be seen here too.
During your free time in between activities you can use our kayaks, swim in the lagoon, have a massage or just relax in your room and have a nap!
Nightly activities include canoe rides, where you will look for nighttime wildlife and enjoy Amazonian stargazing. Enjoy a quiet nocturnal walk while you listen to the creatures and sounds of the jungle at night.
