Your Travel Experience with Galapagos PRO

Day 1

Transfer Quito - Coca

After a short (35 minute) flight to Coca, you will be met by a representative of La Selva Amazon Ecolodge who will welcome you to Coca, help you with your luggage and transfer you and your fellow guests to the pier, where a motorised canoe will be waiting to bring you to the lodge.

Transfer Coca to La Selva Lodge

During the coane trip to the lodge, your guide will explain the sight and environment of the river. On board, you will receive a packed lunch. The canoe can not stop right in front of the lodge, so get off at a short distance and then walk along the forest path and then change to a smaller canoe. Your luggage will be taken care of. At the lodge you will receive a welcome cocktail and an orientation briefing. Dinner is served around 19:30 and you discuss activities for the following day.

Day 2 - 4

Exploring the Amazon Rainforest

Breakfast is served early because there is so much to see and do! There are a number of activities that you might do, including a visit to the parrot clay lick, a trip to a local community, or an excursion to the observation tower to see birds and monkeys. What activity you do will depend on many factors, including the weather and what the group wants to do. If you do not wish to do the morning activity, you are under no obligation to do so. Many guests prefer to remain in the comfortable lodge and relax. A delicious lunch is served in the dining room at 12:30. After lunch, guests can take a nap or read a book during the hottest hours of the day.

Afternoon activities tend to be more low-key than morning ones. You might go for a canoe ride around the lagoon. Again, the activity will be decided by the guide, depending on conditions. A gourmet dinner awaits in the dining room as afternoon turns into evening.

Day 5

Return to Coca Airport

Although you must depart the lodge early in order to get to Coca in time for your flight, breakfast will be served before you leave. You’ll go out the way you came: a canoe ride, followed by a short walk, and then a two-hour ride on the motorised canoe to Coca. Once you reach Coca, you will be taken to the airport, checked in and directed to the waiting room for your return flight to Quito.
