2. Be a sustainable tourist: What to bring on your trip to the Amazon? 

Let’s bring a positive impact to our environment! Changing our habits is hard; however, if we all focus on our goal to create a cleaner and safer place, we’ll make a significant change.


At Jungle Experiences, we are all conscious about this. Here we give you some tips on how we can, all together, take care of our environment:

  • Reducing waste: a good way of reducing the quantity of waste generated during your trip in our cruise is to think about what you should bring to your trip beforehand. For example, with reusable bottles, which every passenger receives upon their arrival to their cabin/suite, we avoid the use of non-eco-friendly material such as plastic.


  • Becoming aware of the waste: we don’t throw plastic, paper, wrappers or containers to the river waters nor to the forest. What we take on our trip to the Jungle is important because if it creates too much waste it will not only dirty our environment but also contaminate our planet! If you need to discard a wrap while you are in the middle of an outing, put it on your backpack or on the cloth bag that we’ll give you, so you can throw it in the garbage once we’re back in the cruise.


  • Sorting the waste: a cleaner way to discard what’s not useful anymore is by sorting the waste and recycle; for that purpose, our cruises have a sorting system. It’s also important to mention that we only use biodegradable and non-toxic cleaning products.

  • Act local! Sustainable tourism in the heart of the Amazon 

Observe and try to adapt to the local culture and way of living. Don’t interfere in their traditions and rituals and if you wish to, be part of them! Listen to their dialects, learn about their exquisite cuisine and much more…

Live your experience with authenticity and you’ll be supporting the community’s development. Make your trip a truly inspirational experience.

Each decision can help us contribute towards a better world. From our choices on what to take on our trip to the Jungle, to how we interact once we are there.
