Meeting Indigenous Villagers

Yasuni Biosphere Reserve, Yasuni National Park

It was not so long ago that these villages, cut off from civilization, never saw any Westerners except for missionaries. Expect an authentic experience at places like Huaorani Ecolodge — the children are adorable and instantly bond with your own kids, putting paint on their faces as a welcome and inviting all to dance in the large meetinghouse. You might also learn to make fire solely from twigs and stone, no matches. Note: You will likely see topless women in these villages, a customary part of their lifestyle. Best for ages 10 to 18.
