Kapawi Ecolodge & Reserve, Ecuador

Kapawi Ecolodge & Reserve is located in one of the most remote and well protected parts of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Deep in the nearly two million acres of the Achuar people’s territory, Kapawi is accessible only by air. Kapawi is best known as one of the world’s first tribe-run lodges. You will have the unique opportunity to meet Achuars in their villages and maybe try manioc beer and consult with shamans.

We love:

The traditional architecture of the bungalows and the unique opportunity to meet the local indigenous tribe, the Achuars.

Eco Friendly Highlights:

The Ecolodge is built entirely using traditional Achuar architecture. The entire lodge is powered by a solar energy system designed to provide 80% of the lodge’s average energy needs. Their canoes are equipped with four-stroke outboard engines, which reduces noise and pollution considerably. Solar-heated shower bags provide 5 gallons of hot water per room daily.

The Black Sheep Inn, perched at 10,500 feet in the Ecuadorian highlands south of Quito, has transparent roofs to let sunlight into the indoor flower gardens. Relax around their self-designed wood stove fireplaces, play scrabble and sip a glass of Ecuadorian Rum or a hot chocolate, and after a long hike leave your tensions behind in the sauna. 

Eco Friendly Highlights:
