The native community of Baltimore, neighboring the Tambopata National Reserve, has become a popular ecotourism destination in the Peruvian Amazon. As a result, the Ecotourism Project of Tambopata Agriculturists and Wild Harvesters was established and nine families joined together to provide lodging to visitors. Here, guests experience life as the local people do day by day in this remote region, participating in daily tasks and nurturing new friendships.
There are nine guest bungalows in all, each one of which belongs to a different family. The activities carried out at each bungalow depend on its immediate surroundings and could include visits to a watering hole for large mammals like wild pigs, deer, tapirs, monkeys and their predators: jaguars and pumas.
You may get the chance to wild-harvest medicinal plants, go fishing or participate in fruit growing depending on the livelihood of the family you visit. Some families offer camping areas in addition to bungalow lodgings.
The services on offer include ecological excursions facilitated by paths connecting each bungalow and paths leading into virgin rainforest. Here you can discover the exuberant biodiversity of the Tambopata National Reserve and support a local community in their efforts to achieve sustainability.
The native community of Baltimore is located in the Tambopata province of the Madre de Dios department. It is very close to the Tambopata National Reserve, the amazing biodiversity of which attracts scientists and tourists from around the world.
