Guidelines for Tourists about SUSTAINABLE TOURISM
The Ese’eja tribe of Infierno in Peru, live in a reserve in the Amazon rain forest
The whole tribe of about 400 of us are in the tourist business! In 1996 we signed a 20 year contract with a tour operator! We had to build the lodge and they would bring the tourists. We had to get a loan to do it!
This was the deal they made with us……. 1.We get 60% of the profits from the lodge. 2.We have an equal say with the tour operator in tourism decisions 3.We do all the jobs in the lodge and they train us where necessary.
4.We act as the rainforest guides for the tourists. 5.We sell the food and drink at the lodge. 6.We can sell wood carvings and other handicrafts made by the tribe at the lodge. All the tribes folk benefit from this arrangement and we are all productively employed in our tourism business.
The benefits to the Ese’eja tribe: 1.It brings in money for a very poor tribe. They earn money from working in the lodge or selling their handicrafts through it. 2.They make use of all their traditional skills in farming, hunting, fishing and knowledge of the rainforest.
3.They are learning new skills and learning to communicate in English to the tourists. 4.The rainforest is benefiting from the care given to it by the tribe.
