First the good: Kapawi lodge lies in a beautiful corner of the world and is an exceptional place to experience the flora and fauna of that beautiful corner.

Wonderful eco-lodge, staff are the secret weapon. Warm, attentive despite language barrier. Nourishing delicious food. Time stands still in this location and provides a unique opportunity to connect with the Achuar people and oneself
