Activity/Tour


La Selva is a series of very special backstage visits with all that is wonderful and mysterious about mother nature. Up to 3 visits a day to the inner sanctum of primary forest with your English speaking naturalist guide and native tracker are available for marvel and wonder.Monkeys will be seen of course and morse species of birds than you can fit in your travel diary. We'll take tou on a visit to a natives house but since all our staff is nativesmyou'll have a chance to experience their way of being for yourself on an individual basis.

Typical Day


OK. You’ve got your shiny boots on. They make you feel ready to go. The binoculars are hung around your neck, close at hand. Camera’s on your hip, maybe. You’ve been introduced to your native tracker who, at La Selva is a kich-wa Indian who probably lives in the neighborhood and has walked the forest you are about to step into all of his life. He knows all the birds , all the tree sounds that indicate which kind of monkey, all the tracks that tell us where the jaguar has been. He has a P.H.D. in jungle craft. He knows the names of all the things you are going to see in English and he will help you to find them.

He even has a little secret instrument that he uses that I am not going to reveal here that we’ve discovered that helps you see what he sees. And with him is the Naturalist, A man or women of great learning usually with a masters or P.H.D. in neotropical science who is there to help point things out and explain as much or as little of the rain forest and its flora and fauna as you care to hear. He or she is a walking encyclopedia . Can produce the Latin names if you want and tell you which plants are medicinal which are hallucinogenic and which are just simply beautiful.

On your first excursion you will see maybe 25 species of birds with names like the screaming piha, the paradise tanager, the long tailed potoo, you can try to write them down if you want but sometimes things will happen very fast in the jungle and the cuviers toucan sighting will lead you to a troop of squirrel monkeys and capuchin monkeys traveling together their babies holding on for dear life to their stomachs.

Then a violaceous jay calls as the monkeys swing from sight and next an oropendala makes its famous drop-of-water call and the next thing you know your native tracker appears with a frog in his hands the exact color and complexion of the leaf litter on the forest floor and he’s about the size of your thumbnail so for sure if you brought that magnifying glass…
