Shopping in The Oriente

  • Shopping in Macas

    Fundación Chankuap

    This foundation aids the Shuar and Achuar by selling crafts, herbal remedies and beauty products. Our personal favorite? The soap made from local cinnamon – but there's also the cinnamon itself, chocolate made from locally grown cacao and coffee beans.

  • Shopping in Coca

    Kallary Kawsay

    This Kichwa handicrafts outlet is packed with handmade jewelry, woven string bags and pottery, in case you return empty-handed from your visits to river communities.
