CULTURAL IMMERSION

ACHUAR CULTURAL IMMERSION

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 you are exploring the forest with a community member, visiting a local family to learn about Achuar culture, gastronomy, medicinal plants, and handicrafts, or even spending a night or two in a community, our experiences are designed to give you a unique and authentic cultural experience.

 

As well as being an incredible community of plants, animals & insects, Kapawi is a community-based foundation that is owned and operated by the Achuar Indigenous Nation. 

OPEN ARMS

OPEN HEARTS

Some of our most unique experiences at Kapawi are those closely connected with the Achuar People, Achuar culture and the Achuar's unique connection with the spirit of the Amazon Rainforest.

Our guests have many opportunities to visit Achuar communities and learn about Achuar life, participate in ceremony and gain wisdom from community leaders.

Guests can spend a day with the Achuar, visit an Achuar house & farm, or go explore the forest with a community member. On special occasions, guests have the opportunity to spend the night at either of the Wayusentsa, Tiinkias or Sharamentsa communities.
