Hello, this is Gerson from the amazon basin in Peru, I was born in a village at 260 Km from Iquitos, and it is Located by the National Park Pacaya - Samiria on the Shore of the yarapa river which is a tributary of the Ucayaly river, The Ucayali meets the Marañon river to give birth to the Mighty Amazon River.
I tackled my English study, I emerged as the front man of a small family tourism operation bringing people in to our village and the Jungle. Now me and other locals have grouped together to give Birth to CURUHUINSI Eco Adventure Tours & Expeditions and through this way give our guidance services to tourists; to show and to teach the people on earth about the Amazon Basin, flora and fauna, and its importance for the entire human race, we hope that through your visit, we can increase love and interest in nature and its conservation.
