Kapawi Lodge is proud to offer guests a complete Amazon adventure, right from the hotel in this hidden corner of the busy world. Escape to this pristine location deep in the quiet heart of the territory of the Shuar and Achuar indigenous tribes. The surrounding two million acres expand in a dense jungle of trees and riverways, erasing any stress you might have left in the outside world.
But even in this isolated rainforest, the lodge is only about five hours away by bus from the booming colonial city of Quito. On this short ride, you will travel down the “Avenue of the Volcanoes” and watch as the paramo mountain ecosystem melts into the humid tropical forest that Kapawi calls home.
Unlike traditional hotels, you will see the true meaning of a rainforest vacation, in authentic thatched-roof guest cabins. But don't worry, each cabin is designed to maximize both comfort and sustainability. You will enjoy a well-ventilated and spacious sleeping area that is screened in. This includes a private bathroom with solar heated water that is almost always available, a security box, and a comfortable hammock, from which you can enjoy the pristine natural environment. Each bed has its own canopied mosquito net as well.
The restaurant at Kapawi offers a great selection of international cuisine and classic Ecuadorian dishes for all three meals, and they can accommodate most special dietary requests as well. In addition to the restaurant, active guests can go for a dip in the rivers and lakes around the lodge; if you're in the mood to just relax, then grab an inner tube and drift calmly down the river.

Other Options in the Ecuadorian Amazon
Kapawi Lodge, due to its remoteness, is a unique experience in Ecuador, but, people who like Kapawi would also like staying at La Selva Lodge, Sacha Lodge, and Napo Wildlife Center, all with excellent accommodations standards and access to similar wildlife.
Extend your trip to the Galapagos Islands and the highlands of Ecuador
Combine your trip to Kapawi Lodge with a cruise through the Galapagos Islands or the Andes mountains. One has to travel through Quito to get to the Amazon anyway, so it's a good idea to stay at least a couple of days in Quito and the surrounding areas. For nearly 20 years, Columbus has shown thousands of satisfied travelers the wonders of Ecuador, and we hope you'll be the next.
