Jungle Farm Visit from Posada Amazonas

The people who work at Posada Amazonas are from the nearby community of “Infierno”. This Tambopata community is made up of Ese-Eja families and folks who migrated to the region from the Peruvian highlands several decades ago. They are the owners of Posada Amazonas and many people from the community also work at the lodge as cooks, guides, and hotel staff. Nevertheless, Infierno is still primarily a farming community and just about everyone who works at the lodge has also worked on a tropical rainforest farm.

Most of the workers whom you meet at the lodge know all about cultivating tropical plants like papaya, yucca, bananas, and a host of other, less familiar plant species that their ancestors used for centuries. Proud of their heritage and way of life, people from the community are happy to show guests the type of farm that most of them grew up with.To provide guests of their Amazon jungle lodge with a glimpse into local life, an activity that visits a local farm is offered.

This is one of the easiest activities to partake in during your stay in Tambopata. It only takes thirty minutes by boat from Posada Amazonas to reach the biggest and most diverse organic farm in the nearby native community of Infierno. The owner cultivates a huge variety of Amazonian crops that range from popular fruits and vegetables to little known Peruvian rainforest plants. In his garden, just about every plant and tree serves a purpose and he is happy to tell you about their uses and his reasons for cultivating them. As your guide translates, you will learn all about a typical farm from the local community and will also have the opportunity to see, smell, touch and taste fruits you’ve never heard of such as the Copuazu, ‘Fish-eye’ Chili, and Cocona.
