Program Highlights
Kapawi is the world´s premier luxury ecological amazon rainforest lodge. This solar energy powered eco-lodge works with the achuar indigenous community to provide an alternative to the traditional rainforest destruction created by enterprises in the amazon rainforest.
The lodge, located on the edge of the kapawi lagoon, is built on stilts in order to minimize the impact caused to the surrounding vegetation. Visitors can choose from a variety of activities such as hiking, camping, visits to the local community, bird watching, and canoeing through the endless winding rivers of the amazon rainforest.

History
The Kapawi Project began in 1993 when Daniel Koupermann, built a lodge and a research centre in Kapawi, the heart of the Achuar Territory . The goal was to commence a new trend in Eco-tourism, in partnership with the FINAE, by providing a monthly means of economic support and jobs to the Achuar located in Kapawi as well as in other communities. In 15 years, all installations will belong entirely to the Achuar Indians
