Our Location

Gaia Amazon Spanish and Kichwa school

We are located in the Ecuadorian Amazonia (the Amazon rainforest), one of the most ecologically unique areas in the world. The great biodiversity and rich culture here, provide a unique and fascinating setting for learning a foreign language.

Our center’s location was carefully chosen to ensure that our guests feel cosily nestled within the natural environment of the rainforest. Our facilities have been designed to maintain the integrity of the natural ambiance, while providing comfort. Gaia overlooks the majestic Napo River, and is surrounded by a dense forest of cocoa trees . This privileged view of the forest, river and mountains gives our visitors ample opportunity to relish the nuances of the rainforest from dawn to dusk.

Gaia is located 3.5 kilometers east of the town of Ahuano, between the Napo River and the route to the village of Campanacocha. We can easily be reached rom the village of Ahuano by canoe, bicycle, truck, or even foot. This strategic location provides access to various tourist attractions and volunteer projects, while retaining a ‘remote’ ambiance.

Gaia offers a new way to learn, enjoy and discover, for those people who really love travelling and are in search of something different.





    I loved being here; it was one of the best experiences of my life! It was full of amazing excursions, guides, lessons, staff, and the lodge was truly lovely and comfortable! I can’t wait to come back!

    Gaia gave me the most amazing experience of my life. It introduced me to the Amazon as if I were an insider, and I loved being a part of it! The lessons and the voluntary work in the local school were incredible and all the kids were so lovely!

    I felt like I was truly in paradise! I had never imagined how unique and amazing a place could be! I enjoyed every daily excursion and above that, I learned so much from the Amazon culture!
