Destination Amazon Rainforest
Peru holds 13% of the Amazon Rainforest in its borders and is the second largest Amazonian region after Brazil. It is a part of the world that has only been systematically explored since 1950, and much remains to be learned about the region and the people who live there. The Amazon Rainforest is one of the most bio-diverse and untamed natural habitats on Earth. Take a walk on the wild side and explore the savage beauty of this region.
Over the years Ecotourism has grown in popularity and created more responsible travel around the world, becoming the cornerstone for the tourism industry especially within the city of Puerto Maldonado. Jungle lodges throughout the Amazon are emphasizing the importance of reducing carbon footprints and respecting local people during travel.
Tourism and Education join hands to help rainforest conservation while at the same time giving back to the indigenous communities of the Amazon region resulting in rewarding experiences for the visitors, who get to appreciate the natural beauty the jungle, meet local people and gain greater awareness of the social and environmental issues facing the Amazon zone.
