For some tourists it’s not a true eco tour if there isn’t an element of giving back to the community they are visiting. With so many tour operators using the “eco” term before their name it’s hard to determine which tours actually have that element of giving back. Palmar Voyages strives to do that with its ecotourism tours to Ecuador and Latin America.
Ecuador is home to numerous Andean and Amazon ethnic groups, which practice their rich traditions and represent about 12 pecent of the population. Andean ethnic groups include the Otovlenian, Saraguro and Puruhae and jungle ethnic groups include Quichua, Huaorani, Shiwiar, Cofan, Secova, Shuar and Ashuar.
With a fair trade or eco tourism human program you’ll get to know these indigenous communities and experience their way of life. Explore their customs, food, and their daily activities. By participating in these programs not only will you get to know about these communities you’ll also be helping them to get better economic resources without the need to sell their precious natural resources to forest and oil companies.
Programs include accommodations like a local, which means you will stay in the homes of the indigenous people, or in huts, camps or rural inns. You’ll eat like a local, and become immersed in every way. But you’ll also go on walks, canoe trips, and piranha fishing. Try your hand at gun blowing, gold washing and craft making. You’ll also an unforgettable chance to meet with a shaman.
Palmar Voyages offers 10, 12, and 15 day humanitarian tours to Ecuador but also to places like Bolivia, Peru and Cuba. Each tour allows you to see the country in the best way possible; by becoming a part of the community and helping to support the locals and their ways.
