DAY 4: Achuar Traditions & Amazon Adventures: Dawn to Dusk
Every day, the Achuar host a Wayus tea ceremony, held at the hearth hut next to our main dock (350 meters from the bungalows). Wayus time is a traditional activity in an Achuar household, taking place before dawn, usually starting at 4 am.
The staff at the lodge practice this tradition every morning, and we offer the optional activity to join them and have Wayus time with the local hosts, talk about dreams, listen to Achuar stories, and experience an aspect of the Achuar culture and community life.
Wayus time ends around dawn, and after that we always offer an early activity, including an early bird- and wildlife watching boat ride, or the possibility to hike in our self-guided trail, or look for wildlife in the lodge's grounds. Breakfast is served at 8 am.
Join a birdwatching boat ride at dawn for a glimpse into the unique biodiversity that is all around Kapawi.
During river explorations, our guests have the opportunity to try their hand at piranha fishing. Your Achuar guide will show you secret fishing spots and local tips to get a bite!
Dinner at 7.30 pm
Once the sun sets, our guests have the opportunity to take a night ride along the moonlit passageways encompassed in the lively nocturnal sounds of crickets, toads, kaymen, and screechers.
