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... More

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... More

My husband and I spent 5 days at Kapawi in April 2015. Our guides Carlos and Celestino were fantastic - super knowledgeable plus great at spotting the wildlife - they gave us a real appreciation for the Amazon. I really liked having two guides, one of whom was part of the community - we felt quite spoiled and they gave... More

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.... More

Second visit in 4 years - remains an excellent destination, and early December seems to be a time with very few visitors, which makes the experience better still ! If you like hiking in hot and humid rainforest, go for it - it is fantastic here !

The Kapawi Reserve is really beautiful, and the lodge is amazing. They have only 30 or so residents at any time which is great. The rooms are absolutely clean (shocking!) and arranged oh so beautifully. The food I expected to be worst, but probably the best I've had in all of Ecuador and that's saying something. The chef Marco blew... More

Great for exploring the Ecuadorian Rain forest! Do not expect a 5 star hotel, this is a jungle lodge. A lot of fiver and forest expeditions, very interesting and a unique experience. We stayed 4 nights (5 days) recommend instead, if not 100% outdoors person to stay only 3 nights, that should be good enough.

I certainly didn't know what to expect but was so surprised by the warmth of the people and their dedication to service - as well as their generous spirits.

Kapawi Ecolodge deserves a five rating but this does not mean everything is perfect! But anyone who intends to stay there should not forget that you will yourself hundreds of miles away from "civilization". When I read visitors complaining that there is no boiling water, television or high-speed internet I think this should be made clear...!! Once this is understood,... More
