Kapawi Ecolodge and Reserve, Ecuador, Named Top Ecolodge

Kapawi Ecolodge and Reserve, in Ecuador’s Amazon Basin, reports that they have been named one of the top 50 Ecolodges in the world for 2009 by National Geographic Adventure Magazine. Congratulations to Kapawi!

Kapawi is a great project of the Achuar Nation, and is a remarkable community based tourism project.

Kapawi Lodge, located 100 miles east of the Andes in the most remote region of the Ecuadorian Amazon basin, is a fantastic destination for visiting with the local Achuar community, hiking in the rainforest, canoeing and swimming in rivers and lakes, and for viewing wildlife, such as pihanhas, pink dolphins, caiman and the 480 species of birds that have been recorded in the area.
