Benefits of an Amazon eco-lodge stay and ecotourism

03 February 2023 (87 visits)

At Tambopata Ecolodge, we understand how ecotourism has the potential to protect local flora and flora, because that is what we have been doing since 1991. We have been helping to define and put into practice the principles of responsible travel in Peru for more than three decades, as we work to conserve the Amazon rainforests that are our jungle home.


Our work involves ensuring that typical Amazon forest ecosystems are preserved in their natural state, while also raising awareness of environmental issues by inviting travelers from all over the world to come and stay with us, and to explore the Amazon for themselves, in the company of our expert guides.


In this way, we hope to contribute to helping people to reduce their own environmental impact, and to teaching new generations of children about the importance of conserving the natural world. And of course, besides educating them, an ecotourism vacation also makes both children and adults feel good! There is no better way to relax and disconnect from everyday life than exploring unspoiled nature.


Our conservation-based ecotourism initiative also benefits the local economy. International tourism to our region, driven by the popularity of our jungle lodge, helps to improve the quality of life of all the people who live in our corner of Peru, combating unemployment and creating new sources of income that help turn the local population away from other, environmentally and economically unsustainable ways to make a living. By making a success of our eco-lodge, we have demonstrated that ecotourism is a more sustainable way to earn a living over the long run than modifying or destroying natural ecosystems for short-term gain.


Our eco-lodge is located in a remote area, in the heart of an unspoiled wilderness, where our guests can truly connect with the surrounding forest. Our rainforest eco-lodge concept emphasizes environmental conservation funded through responsible tourism. Our goal is to demonstrate that it is possible to visit the Amazon without altering its ecology, and to design tourism activities that actually help to preserve rainforest fauna and flora, by ensuring that the forests remain intact.


At Tambopata Ecolodge, we follow the core principles of ecotourism, helping to protect the Peruvian Amazon, raising environmental awareness among local people and international visitors alike, and stimulating our country’s economy, while at the same time providing enjoyment for generations of nature-lovers!

What your rainforest visit means

In Peru ecotourism has helped make it possible to create national reserves and save the forests of the Amazon basin from destruction. By implementing our ecotourism-based conservation model (see our video), we are ensuring the forests will be around for future generations to appreciate. Pioneering projects like Tambopata Ecolodge, which was established in 1991, serve as a conservation model, by showing how responsible ecotourism can support conservation initiatives.
