Best for Cultural Interaction
Journey Latin America, British tour operator ranks the Huaorani Ecolodge as BEST FOR CULTURAL INTERACTION http://www.journeylatinamerica.co.uk/papagaio/Top5/jungle-lodges.aspx A stay at Huaorani Ecolodge offers a unique rainforest experience, coupled with an intimate insight into the lives and culture of the Huaorani tribal people. While the lodging is basic, the profound impact of forging a connection with the living culture of a jungle tribe is what sets it apart. Visitors will discover first-hand how people live in remote jungle communities, how they make use of the forest's resources, and the ill effects of oil exploration on them and their lands. Bring your sense of adventure: you'll arrive by light aircraft and dugout canoe, and learn how to set traps, make fire without matches, build a shelter in minutes, use a blowgun, practice the perfect swing of the machete and catch fish in jungle lagoons.
