About This Center
Kapawi Ecolodge is an award-winning indigenous community ecotourism enterprise in the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador that offers conscious and responsible travelers the opportunity to engage in authentic cultural experiences with people of the Ecuadorian Amazon, in an unspoiled rainforest setting, while directly supporting the sustainable development of the Achuar indigenous nation.
"Kapawi Lodge is so gorgeous, so tranquil, so immersive it astounds me it could even exist. Unique in all the world." Sean Jewell
Venue HighlightsKapawi is located in southeastern Ecuador, in Ecuador's last large tract of primary rainforest, in a region of lowland Amazon Rainforest characterized by meandering rivers like the Pastaza, Capahuari, and Kusutkau rivers.
Wellness at Kapawi Ecolodge means being part of an active process of becoming aware of the Amazon Rainforest biodiversity and natural settings as sources of restoration, well being, relaxation, and disconnection from the world.
From our architecture and design, facilities, and wellness programs, we offer an experience toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness; it is a dynamic process of change and growth.
To learn about the local culture one must spend time with the people: try the local food, participate in local activities, and appreciate the local customs. Whether it is exploring the forest with a community member, or visiting a local family to learn about the culture, gastronomy, medicinal plants, weavings and handicrafts, or even spending a night or two in a community, our experiences are designed to allow you to have a unique and authentic cultural experience.
AccommodationsWe have 10 cabins, 6 doubles/triples, and 4 doubles.
