Yasuni Park and Huaorani area interest

Greetings,
I am a European woman living in near Quito, Ecuador since 5 months. Does anyone have a great experience traveling to Yasuni - into the park. Not interested in fancy lodging at the entrance to the park, but want to venture into the park and live the life of local people. I don't mind paying if it is worth the location. Some tours require a minimum of 5 or more people. I have a lady friend who would travel with me but I am not a fan of group travel.
Your help would be appreciated. You…
