We have been to the Amazon before, but this was a completely different experience. With a local guide, we learned all about a whole different world. We tried the blow gun and the spear, but the real point is that there are people who still live this way and it is amazing! We visited three villages where they had products... More

We would highly recommend this trip, from which we have just returned and which we added to our original itinerary (Galapagos and the Andean highlands) and which gave us a valuable and educational third section to our journey. Our knowledgeable, capable and fun guide Christina met us at our hotel and stayed with us until we reached Quito airport on... More

Our trip in March was excellent! We read all the Trip Advisor reviews right up until we left and had spent a lot of time imagining the trip. It was EVEN BETTER than we expected, which surprised us as we had built it up quite a bit. Roberto Mino was our English speaking guide, and Bai was our Huaorani guide.... More

The visit to Huaorani Eco-Lodge was an unmatched cultural experience. Even the trip to the lodge was quite an experience in itself: a scenic road first to Banos and then to Shell, followed by an awesome flight over the sea of green in a cute five-passenger plane, followed by a no less scenic boat ride. We made a stop at... More

I had done an amazon rainforest lodge before in Peru! which was also great! but this one was fantastic. With such a small group, ( there were a total of 8 guests, maximum would be 10) you really did feel like you are in a remote, non touristy rainforest lodge, because you are. All the staff was exceptional, our English... More

This was an incredible opportunity to learn about ways of being and thinking that are vastly different from the ways most of us in developed countries have ever experienced. Go now if you are able as time is changing these people forever. We had some glitches in out trip and if you go you must be prepared to adapt as... More

This was won of the best travel experiences I've ever had. It was rugged, real, well-organized, informative and relaxing. The Huaorani people are humble, gracious and knowledgeable - and their cause and way of life reminds you of the humanity that is being lost in the developed world. From the moment our FANTASTIC ecuadoran guide Roberto picked us up for... More

Our guide Roberto picked us up at our hotel in Quito and as we traveled through the mountains, he gave us the history of the Huaroni people and their company's 20 year relationship with this indigenous tribe. This helped to prepare us for first an exciting flight where we landed on a runway in the midst of the rainforest and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay in an eco-lodge situated at the headwaters of the Amazon and run by the Huaorani, one of the most isolated ethnic groups on earth: first contacted by the outside world only 55 years ago, they speak a language that is unrelated to any other. You’ll learn to use a blowgun, hear their leader relate the tribe’s fight against oil exploration, and take a two-day meander down the Shiripuno River in kayaks, watching for tropical birds and monkeys.Highly Commended -The Virgin Holidays Responsible Travel Award 2009 and 2010Best Company in Innovation 2010 - LATATrips of a Lifetime award by Travel & Leisure 2010Best Sustainable Tourism Project 2008 and 2009 - LATABest Adventure Travel Companies on Earth by National Geographic 2009 ... more   less
