About.

Located in the Amazonian region of Pastaza, Ecuador, Wayra Wasi is a Kichwa-led project seeking to harbor indigenous cultural vitality and promote cross-cultural and ecological education. Cultural exchange programs enable visitors to learn about the life-ways and culture of the Kichwa del Oriente, impressing upon one the richness and sheer ethnobotanical importance of the Amazon ecosystem while educating about indigenous knowledge and experience in today's paradigm. Accommodation is provided in hand-built wooden cabañas and visitors will have the opportunity to learn about native plant remedies, pre-dawn guayusa, Kichwa language, ceramics, yuca fermentation, and more.
