The Añangu community has spent many years showcasing its natural realm at award-winning Napo Cultural Center. The desire was always to, through tourism, have a means of maintaining the community’s lifestyles and identity as strong as possible. Tourists at Napo Cultural Center have a chance of meeting community members and could visit them, but the experience truly centered on creating an environment secluded from the human realm and immersed in the spectacular natural setting that thrives at Yasuní National Park. As the need of diversifying visitors’ experiences grew, the community at Añangu developed the idea of creating an opportunity for tourists to stay at the community to share and partake in Amazonian life and culture. Thanks to successful administration on behalf of the community, the Napo Cultural Center project was thus born and built.
