DAY 3: Dawn to Dusk: Embracing Achuar Traditions and Nature
Amazon Adventure


The day starts at 4 am with the 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. This moment is special for the Achuar since it is a family moment to share dreams, plan the day's activities, or just to have a conversation about family issues. 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.
After breakfast you can Paddle a Kayak upriver to a secluded stream or sit back and relax on a sunset ride down the Capahuari. Join a birdwatching boat ride at dawn for a glimpse into the unique biodiversity that is all around Kapawi.
7.30 pm dinner
