Located 1 hour away from Tena, Sinchi warmi is an essential place to visit. This complex of traditional cabins promises an unforgettable experience, allowing to enjoy the lush surroundings of Amazonian vegetation. The project is an initiative of associated women from the local Quechua community, to prove that it is possible to succeed as an indigenous woman, without leaving aside its culture. Whether it is in a hammock or perched in the mirador, you can quickly enjoy and immerse yourself in Sinchi Warmi’s tranquillity.
The famous Rio Napo is accessible on foot, river where you can sail in a canoe for a day or start a real journey in the Amazon. The site combines cultural nights, traditional dances, Quechua courses, chocolate making and guided tours in the jungle. The community lives around the complex, thus encouraging an incursion into the local way of life, whether through simple encounters or by participating in daily tasks.
What distinguishes this accommodation, member of the FEPTCE (Ecuador’s Multinational Federation of Community Tourism), is its economic impact generated in support of local women and its gratifying jobs generated, in addition to financing projects such as the construction of a school.
