Peruvian Amazon jungle holiday
Description of Peruvian Amazon jungle holiday
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.
PlanetOur guests are witnesses of the fulfillment of our environmental responsibility both in the environment of our EcoLodge and outside it, and of the spectacular results of the projects we carry out with prestigious research and environmental preservation centers such as SERNAMP. UCP, UNAP and others.
Projects such as the conservation of the aguaje, the planting of eggs of Taricayas, the conservation of the Arahuana (Dragon Fish) and others have managed to reverse the risk of extinction in which these species were found.
Pacaya Samiria Amazon Lodge where guests will stay has sustainability at its centre. Not only does it employ expert local guides but it has also been carrying out the task of species preservation and environmental conservation for several years, which is why it has an artificial lake whose physical and environmental conditions are optimal for the successful release of taricayas turtles.
Here guests can sponsor the released taricayas and obtain a Sponsorship Certificate. Every year in Pacaya Samiria between the months of October and November, nature gives us an unparalleled opportunity: to be an exceptional witness of a ritual that brings us closer to a fundamental milestone in the life of one of the turtle species that until recently was in danger of extinction, the liberation of the Taricayas.
The release is a process that takes place after the hatching of the taricaya eggs which have been incubated for approximately 70 days.
The liberation of Taricayas will allow them to continue with their life cycle of reproduction and repopulation of the species.
PeoplePacaya Samiria Amazon Lodge also supports various communities in the Yanayacu-Pucate basin in spreading their efforts to preserve the environment and conserve endangered species.
Along the same lines, Pacaya Samiria Amazon Lodge has facilitated, for example, the technification of artisan women of the Community of San Jorge and has promoted the creation of the Committee of Artisan Women of the area.
Pacaya Samiria Amazon Lodge incorporates in its tourist programs visits to several surrounding communities and in particular to the Community of San Jorge.
Pacaya Samiria Amazon Lodge participated in the organization of the Committee of Artisan Women "Pua Kamatawara" of San Jorge whose crafts it promotes in order to help them generate a sustainable activity that favors the conservation of their natural environment and at the same time generates complementary economic income to their activities.
Pua Kamatawara means in the Kukama Kukamiria language "Hands Workers", its members are direct descendants of the Kukama Kukamiria people, fighters by nature and endowed with magical hands with which they transform natural materials such as "chambira" (Astrocaryum chambira), huingo ( Crescentia cujete) and different seeds and plants to make fabrics, necklaces and a wide diversity of crafts that reflect their way of life.
