Kapawi Lodge - Hotel Puyo - Ecuador

Kapawi, one of the more socially responsible and well-known eco-lodges, was founded in 1993 to help the Achuar people, who live in the surrounding area. For years, the lodge was operated by the Achuar people with the aid of outside hotel experts, but on January 1, 2008, total ownership and responsibility for the lodge passed to the Achuar. The lodge is located in Achuar territory, on the Pastaza River near the Peruvian border.

The architecture of Kapawi is Achuar-based: the complex boasts several thatched-roof cabins that are quite solid and comfortable. The rooms are attractive and come with balconies, hammocks, private bath and mosquito netting. The lodge can accommodate up to 50 guests in double and triple cabins. There is also an attractive main lodge with a bar, library and dining room. Kapawi is a true eco-lodge, featuring recycling programs, solar energy and minimal-impact boat motors, to name a few practices. There are many activities at Kapawi lodge, including bird-watching (540 different species have been seen in the area), hiking, canoe rides, camping and visits to the Achuar communities.
