Community tourism

Señora de La Esperanza. © NPCCommunity tourism is one of the best ways to generate income for people living near the forest and to encourage them to conserve their own forests and wildlife. NPC is promoting eco-tourism based on living in rural communities.

100% of the income generated by tourism goes directly to the communities!

Tourism in La Esperanza, Yambrasbamba

The forests of La Esperanza are extremely beautiful and diverse. They are also very hard to walk through as the mountains are extremely rugged and usually muddy. There are no hotels or fancy restaurants and the conditions in the field sites are quite rough.  However, this is probably the best place to see the rare and endemic yellow tailed woolly monkeys, and the Long-Whiskered Owlet, so the hard walking definitely pays off.

Tourism in Corosha

Corosha was the first community in Amazonas to create a communal reserve on their lands. Accomodation is basic but the reseption is warm. Caves, watefalls, lakes and a lot of wildlife are waiting there to be explored.
