Passengers must bring with them a water bottle or a canteens as basic and essential utensil for their personal use, which they can recharge both in our facilities and in our boats as many times as they require, In this way we will be collaborating with our planet. A reusable water bottle takes less oil to produce, replaces all the plastics that you would have used and thereby reduces both your carbon footprint and helps reduce the plastic burden on landfills, oceans, streams and other places that plastic waste ends up. Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
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.
