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. To build an ecolodge so far from the nearest infrastructure could only be achieved by an organization decided to sustainability. Unique in all the world."
"By the time my visit there was over I felt restored and very grateful. I highly recommend this Ecuador Amazon lodge as a retreat from the hectic pace of modern life and for its great exposure to the Achuar tribal life."
"I came home from Kapawi Ecolodge with a deeper connection to nature and a newfound mission to be more active in my work to create sustainable solutions for the current environmental crisis like the Achuar did."
This Amazon eco lodge of Ecuador is 100% owned and operated by the Achuar Indigenous community. All revenue generated from ecotourism goes towards supporting the community, preserving their culture and protecting the Amazon rainforest.
A primary part of our mission is to invite our guests to reconnect with nature, discover the abundant Amazon Rainforest wildlife, learn new ways of environmental stewardship, and ultimately contribute to the protection and respect of the Amazon Rainforest.
For the past 25 years, the Achuar have worked in partnership with Kapawi Ecolodge's guests to conserve and protect the Sacred Headwaters region of the Ecuadorian Amazon from extraction and deforestation industries.
Discover the Amazon at your own pace through our flexible 4, 5 and 8-day Amazon tours.
No two Kapawi experiences are the same. Your time with us can be spent on the Amazon river, hiking, culturally immersed or deep in our wellness activities.
Our story begins with an Ecuadorian ecotourism pioneer and a call from the Amazon Rainforest's Achuar Indigenous Nation
