Your visit to Kapawi Ecolodge and Reserve will transport you to a time and place so remarkable, so utterly unlike any other you have experienced. Deep, deep, in the Ecuadorian rainforest, accessible only by plane is this wonder of confluence where ancient life and tradition gently lights your evening path with solar power.

This is the home of the Achuar, the last indigenous people of the area, some 6,000 in population now living in 64 communities throughout their two million acres of nearly pristine land in the Amazon.

A partnership was formed in 1996 between Canodros, an Ecuadorian tourism operator and the Achuar with the shared goal of bringing economic stability and sustainability while conserving the natural state of the rainforest. The Kapawi project was planned and its successful execution over time has resulted in the full transference of management and ownership to the Achuar people as of January 1, 2008.

This trip helps support the Achuar people and helps to preserve their land.

    Is this the company who won an award???
    In spite of Kapawi’s reputation, it seems that their tour operator CEKSA is not interested in paying to their employees.
    Jorge Fabre and Luis Miguel Bermeo, among others are some of the former employees that nowadays they are taking legal action against CEKSA.
    So, we ask you, do you really want to go to a places where you know that they act like that against their employees?
