Know and identify your environment

Throughout the development of the Amazon tour travel plan activities, visitors are expected to learn where they are from. More than visiting the places, learn about the fauna and flora found in the route as well as the ecosystem in which the activity takes place. The Tropical Rainforest, as a strategic ecosystem in the protection of water and air worldwide.

 

Campaigns and workshops

Amazon tour seeks to participate in the promotion and development of campaigns and workshops that deal with issues of recycling, good use of resources and legal trafficking of fauna and flora. It seeks to make alliances with foundations and ONGs that deal with this problem and actively participate in the activities, aimed at both the local population and visitors

 

No shoes to read ...

It is a project that we want to implement in Amazon tour in which a percentage of the profits will be used to create a reading and study center for children in Leticia, where they can count on what they need to read, study or do their homework without need to have a dress code in particular, that all indigenous and mestizo children can benefit from the project, having environmental education as its main theme. It will start with a small library and as the company generates more income the project will be expanded.
