This project is based on 4 pillars that explicitly promise a radical change towards real tourism sustainability.
1. Wild species are visited only in their natural environment, not exposing them to direct contact with humans to avoid vulnerability and disrespect through the abuse of technology and the ‘animal selfie’.
2. The local guides or ‘baquianos’ are mostly former hunters who have decided to drop their shotgun to load a camera and become image hunters in the jungle, thus promoting respect for the natural environment visited by tourists .
3. Visits to indigenous settlements are carried out respecting a tolerable carrying capacity that does not alter the way of life of these small communities. Visitors learn how people live in the Amazon today by doing the same activities accompanied by local guides and avoiding the cultural exploitation of the region.
4. Regional gastronomy is the main source of economic income for the peasants and indigenous people of the Amazon. To achieve tourism sustainability, it is necessary to promote regional products in the menu offered to tourists who come to visit a place full of biodiversity, where we can find hundreds of species and fruits that allow us to provide an authentic experience in this aspect, reducing the environmental impact of each visit and the opening of new gastronomic fusion markets for responsible eco visitors in search of vegan, vegetarian and regional options.
At the request of visitors, it is possible to spend the night in cabins or camp in the jungle.
The food menu may vary according to the season and the preferences of the visitors.
The guide service is provided by local guides from the region.
