Trek Ecuador & Kapawi Ecolodge, by Juan Carlos Garcia, Ecuador
We design travel experiences in Ecuador that connect the traveller with the Amazon Rainforest and the Achuar indigenous people, challenging them to explore and experience something that we hope, in the long run, will create a positive change in their life. Our travel experiences take place at Kapawi Ecolodge in the Achuar indigenous territory, deep in Ecuador’s Amazon Rainforest. Kapawi first opened its doors in 1996, becoming a pioneer ecotourism joint enterprise in Ecuador and the region. Kapawi was developed as an economic alternative to support biodiversity conservation and cultural preservation, while creating employment and income for local Achuar families. In 2019, Kapawi finished a complete renovation of its cabins and grounds, and opened new river, forest, and community activities. We believe travel is a tool for conservation and sustainable development, and it is a great opportunity for us to join a Network of like-minded individuals.
