Tour Secoya is a cultural tour to one of the many indiginous groups in Ecuador. Secoya people are an indigenous group living in the Amazon in Ecuador and Peru. In Ecuador are living about 400 Secoyas. Tour Secoya is opportunity for you to learn about the nature in the Amazon and the customs and culture of this indigenous group. Incomes from the tour goes directly for the Secoya tribe. This is a great chance for you to see real jungle with the local people living there. During this tour you will be a guest in the tribe.
Eco tourism is a way to support the local people to conserve the nature. The oil companies are a threat to the environment here and the Secoya people don’t want to work in the oil industry. Eco tourism gives incomes for the local people and helps them to take care of the nature.
