All about the “Route of the dreams” Upper Amazon 3 days, 2 nights

Our ancestors emigrated from other areas to these sectors because of their great hunting, fishing and agricultural potentials.
In 1930, the first inhabitants settled in the Uchuculin sector.
The jungle, rivers, caves, canyons, flora and fauna have made this majestic jungle the ideal place for the development of a small indigenous Kichwa community.
With the passage of time and the population increase, animals have migrated towards the mountains, away from humans.
According to the stories of local people, the spiritual connection with nature makes it possible to rest peacefully in this area of the jungle
The crystalline waters of the rivers and canyons positively influence every person who bathes in them.
