Day 1 - Wayruru

After welcoming you at the airport we take a taxi down the road leading to Tarapacá where we will begin an ecological walk of 2 hours in the jungle to the indigenous Wayruru community.
During the walk you will learn about timber trees, medicinal plants of the region and the various indigenous cultures and practices. Upon reaching the Maloca or traditional longhouse, known to the natives of the region as a place where meetings and traditional festivals are held, you will be received by the shaman or leader in charge. He will speak about the importance of this place within the tribe and the sacred medicines that are used there such as Mambe, Coca, Rape, Ambil and ground tobacco.
You can then enjoy a traditional lunch which is followed by a visit to the “chagra”, the place where traditional crops such as cassava, banana, pineapple, the coca plant and tobacco are grown. You will get the chance to learn about regional cuisine while preparing dinner with community members. After dinner we can go on a night walk to see bioluminescent mushrooms and other fascinating nocturnal animals and plants.
