The Huaorani are a timeless people. Their origins are unknown and their language (Huaorani translates as "The People") has no relation to any other known tongue. The Huaorani Ecolodge is designed to provide an intimate, harmonious and environmentally sustainable experience. Staying at the lodge is a way to share time with the Huaorani and experience the richness of their natural environment, while creating the least possible impact on the surroundings. There are 5 great thatched cabins in the rainforest for your stay while you explore.
A couple of hours north of Quito, Otavalo Market is great for weavings and other souvenirs. Do haggle!
