Community Tourism | Peru | Communities Article


Community tourism allows the visitor the opportunity to experience life in rural communities and to easily visit sites of interest off the beaten track. Each visit is unique and can be tailored to your own interests. The communities and areas involved in this project each have their own attractions, so if you like wildlife, adventure, culture, birding or just want to hang out and get to know a new way of life or take a walk of discovery in a tropical forest, to see what you can find please contact us to arrange your visit. The British NGO Neotropical Primate Conservation and its partners began developing community tourism initiatives in rural areas of Northern Peru several years ago. The project now encompasses many communities in this biologically and culturally rich and diverse corner of the earth.
