Experiential Tourism - In the jungle

The tourism that seeks admire nature without altering it is called ecotourism and cultural exchange between residents and visitors is called Living Tourism, both can become a development alternative in San Martin.

In the Alto Mayo have already initiated several ecotourism projects, forests aguajales and renacales Tingana are proof of this, tourists can admire nature moving silently in canoes through the tangled forest without destroying any plant or hunt animals , just admiring the beauty of this environment inhabited by hundreds of endemic species. Projects like this can help raise awareness among residents of the importance of forest conservation, converting their land estates and tourist attractions that can be put up for tourists to visit in addition to charge an entry, you can offer other services as food, souvenirs, etc.

Activities like trekking, bird watching (birdwatching), cycling mountain biking, among others, are also part of what is called ecotourism, besides admiring nature to take advantage of fresh air and oxygenate your blood purging of pollution you find in other cities with high pollution levels.

In the following video, you'll notice as a group of American tourists come to the Alto Mayo to live with the inhabitants of a village where many of them are engaged in the planting and harvesting of coffee, we see how they engage in various activities, shares food, play football, etc. This type of tourism is called Living Tourism and is a missing explode in our region Alternatively, if it is true that in cities like Lamas can observe and learn from the natives, yet little has been done to develop this type of tourism.


Experiental Tourism and Ecotourism are certainly two alternatives to find the sustainable development of the region, ensuring the conservation of natural resources and giving the world the culture and tradition of our people.
