The Kapawi Project began in 1993. The goal was to start a new trend in eco-tourism, in partnership with the OINAE, by providing a monthly means of economic support and also jobs to the Achuar Indians located in Kapawi as well as in other communities. Now all facilities belong entirely to the Achuar Indians. The lodge can receive up to 60 visitors in 20 huts which were built in accordance to the Achuar concept of architecture. Environmentally friendly, methods such solar energy and trash recycling are also used.
