SAS Travel Peru

Overview

The Matsigenka are an indigenous or native people belonging to the Arawak linguistic family. Part of its cultural identity is the close relationship with the territory, which is considered a source of life since it provides various means for subsistence, as well as all the beings that inhabit it are important.
The inhabitant of the Amazonian basin does not want civilization, because he does not need it and it is onerous for him, the dress makes him sick; he has plenty of food: he has absolute freedom, how chaining a man with needs, when he has plenty. Padre Gerardo Fernandez.

Difficulty

Easy,

Transport

VERY IMPORTANT: because the transfer from the office in the city of Puerto Maldonado to the lodge is done in river boats we invite the passengers to repack and carry in a smaller backpack or suitcase only what goes to need during your stay at the lodge. Large suitcases will stay in the office. In this way the weight of the boat will not exceed the maximum allowed and we will facilitate the transfer to the lodge.
