Selva Bananito Lodge takes eco-tourism to just where every eco-tourist wants it! Expect romantic candle-lit evenings, since the lodge uses no electricity produced by generators in order to preserve a more natural night-time ambiance. (LED Reading lamps are provided for guests in the cabins). The small size of this eco-lodge gives you the privilege of exploring an amazing pristine rain forest environment, all in the intimacy of a small group. Avoid those packed tours – if you want to really feel the rhythms of the natural world, Selva Bananito is the perfect getaway.

Facilities at Selva Bananito

The main lodge – a spacious “rancho” – has a dining area, bar, and small library upstairs, and kitchen.  It functions in many ways as the home base of the property – guests are welcome to socialize and relax in the lodge, and meals are served there.  Selva Bananito is the perfect place for tranquility.  Without the constant hum of electricity, the main lodge is less like a bar lounge and more like an uncle’s log cabin and encourages guests to consider this small and intimate property as an opportunity to relax.
