Learning to Use a Blowdart or Spear

Yanez Pinzon N26 -131 y la Nina, Yasuni National Park

Realize that you have to fly in by small plane or take a long boat ride to reach these ecoresorts. There’s no grocery store or few other signs of civilization within a 100-mile radius. Fortunately, food is shipped in for guests or grown on the property. Villagers need to hunt for their own food, preferably the wild boar. A favorite outing for kids is the chance to climb trees like the guides and use these six-foot long blowdarts, which can be done at the Napo Wildlife Center. No, you won’t be hunting. In fact, you’ll be lucky to get off the ground on your tree-climbing attempt. Best for ages 10 to 18.
