A community in the heart of the world
A SPACE OF
In the Achuar's understanding of the community of life.
They don't live in the forest.
They are of the forest.
During your stay you will be awakened to feel the same sense of unity with nature.
Around the grounds, you will find many areas, private and communal, for yoga, meditation, writing, reading, working, & wellness workshops.
Out in front of the gathering hut and community hut is Kapawi's conservatory project; the wetland sanctuary. Early in the morning you will hear kamen, horned screamer, insects, toads and birds that have established their home here. Take a walk on the doc to listen and learn about the eco-system of life all around Kapawi.
We welcome guests into each of our handcrafted bungalows, furnished with expert craftsmanship and woodwork. All buildings at Kapawi are designed with traditional Achuar architecture and built by the local community. Our bungalows are either double cabins (2 beds) or triple suits (3 beds).
The Gathering Hut
This is our communal area for family-style dinners, happy hour, breakfast, lounging after a day of adventure, reading, a meeting place pre-adventure, group adventure planning and more...
Before sunrise, we gather around the fire for an Achuar Wayusa tea ceremony to discuss our dreams, detox & re-energize for the day ahead.
During the day, this is the go-to adventure meeting place to plan the day's events before setting off from the doc below
At night, you may find yourseld relaxing in hammocks as guests and guides circle around the fire to tell stories of the forest
