Located in the Pastaza region of Amazonian Ecuador, Wayra Wasi is a Kichwa-run project which harbors indigenous cultural vitality and promotes cross-cultural ecological education. We wish to shed light on the ethnobotanical importance of the Amazon ecosystem while educating about indigenous knowledge and culture. Accommodation is provided in hand-built traditional wooden cabañas. Visitors have the opportunity to learn about medicinal plant remedies, ceramics tradition, upper-Amazon botany and ecology, pre-dawn Guayusa traditions, Kichwa language, fermenting yuca into chicha, and more. If you wish to understand Runa Kawsay, the traditional Runa way of life, the way the Ancestors lived, and how the people live today - make a visit to our center.
