La Selva Amazon Ecolodge has nineteen spacious suites, including three scenic suites with a view of Lake Garzacocha and roomy family suites for those who have brought their children along on their jungle adventure.
The Scenic and Superior Suites include exclusive rainforest showers, private balconies, and great panoramic views, while the Family Suites include extra-spacious bathrooms, hammocks and a tub on a private porch. The design of these suites is inspired by local homes used by the natives for generations: the airy, shady layout keeps things cool even in the hottest hours of the day. In the bathrooms,
amenities such as hairdryers and shampoo, conditioner, and soap are included. Hot showers, ceiling fans, and electricity are provided in each suite. At La Selva Lodge, they are deeply committed to sustainable ecotourism and keeping their impact on the environment to a minimum. Therefore, do not have air conditioners in the rooms. There are, however, large windows and a ceiling fan which keeps the air in the suites circulating. As an added bonus, the fans are fairly quiet, allowing you to hear the soothing sounds of the jungle at night!
