Waponi! Detour Destinations is Going Social


Galapagos Tour Adventure


Hello there!


“Waponi”, as the Huaorani say (which actually means joy, cool or everything that is positive and beautiful in life).


Winya jai“, as the Achuar people from the Kapawi Ecolodge in Ecuador’s Amazon would say.


Rimaykullayki“! That is how the mountain people of Peru and Bolivia who live near Cusco and Machu Picchu would greet you.


How do we know all this? We have met the Huaorani, the Achuar and the mountain people of Peru and Bolivia. We have been to their homes, shared their food, blown a blowgun with them.

We work with local travel providers. And by doing this we actually help them preserve their culture and their homes. We help them by taking you on journeys to their lands – journeys that are responsible, sustainable and supportive to the local communities.

Now we are going on a new journey ourselves – the journey on social media!

A journey that we also want to share with you, this time online.

We want to create a great community of travelers who love to experience the local culture. A community of friends who care for the local people. We know you are out there and we want to get to know you better and share with you what we all care about.

So join us! Do it now by liking our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter, Pinterest and Google+!

Let the journey begins!
