Community Projects

Tsachilas de Santo Domingo and Damuintaro Huaorani Project. If you have a few extra days and would like to to experience and authentic journey back in time with one of the most vibrant communities of Ecuador than send us a message. Programs start at about $50 per day and include meals, activities and accommodation. If you are more adventurous and have more of a budget than we would recommend visiting the Huaoranis of Damuintaro. This is an experience of a lifetime. Just getting there is a trip in itself. Taking local buses from Quito through the Andes past Banos and arriving in a small town called Shell. From there a 30 minute flight in a 3 seater plane is waiting to take to the village of Damuintaro. Here you will find one of the last true warriors of the Huoarani tribe called Peke. This Elder provides a wonderful lens into the life of this often misunderstood tribe. With the challenges of COVID we are working towards providing a safe experience for everyone involved. So let the Galapagos Amazon Experts help guide you into an unforgettable experience. Explore our website and know we are just a click away to answer any questions.
