It's hard to describe the experience at Kapawi... the location is incredible, the food is great and the guides were extremely knowledgeable. The integration with the nature is VERY real with a lot to learn about the people, forest and animals there. We enjoyed very much the rides, walks and swimming in the river. Kids were super happy (8 and...

the location cannot be beat BUT the lodge is in very dire need of repairs in the rooms and on the walkways. a few of the little huts were totally abandoned to the rainforest. The elevated walkway is very dangerous with missing slats. The huts have no secured screens and I was always wondering what had crawled in the room...

My 3 boys, ages 7-11, threatened to chain themselves to posts rather than leave on the day of departure, which was astonishing given that this was after a week of no TV and no wifi. Several months later they are still asking if we can go back, Our guide, Napoleon, made every effort to make sure everyone in our party,...

This lodge is an amazing place. It is so different than home in the US. We spent 4 days here in February. It was very dry during this time. We had no rain and saw no mosquitos. The first day was so hot we thought of leaving. There are no fans to help make you more comfortable. The second day...

We spent six days here as part of a Pachamama Alliance journey. What an amazing experience to explore this window into the rainforest--via the only ecolodge exclusively owned and operated by indigenous peoples. Obviously, the experience is about being in the jungle, and getting to know the flora, fauna, and people there. It's a perfect base for doing that, and...

My family of 4 (includes 2 teenagers) visited here earlier last month and it couldn't have been better. The company sent us with an English speaking guide named Gus, who was phenomenal, and our native Achuar naturalist at the lodge was Simon. We were the only people there, which is really too bad. People are afraid of Zika virus, but...

Kapawi was my introduction to the Amazon. I've returned numerous times over the past 10 years. If you want an awesome Amazonian experience drawing authentically from indigenous culture and solid conservation science, this is the place!!! The Achuar Nation of Ecuador who own this enterprise are an extraordinary people. Their knowledge of the the jungle is mind-blowing, their culture is...

I traveled alone here, as a woman, and felt completely safe, despite everyone cautioning me that I shouldn't go alone. The staff was very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. The food was fairly authentic, and there were very few people there when I went, which made it even better, since I wanted to experience the peace and quiet of the jungle....
