Symbol of ‘Mother’ ceramics of Chazuta

Indigenous traditional practices and cultural pride.


Lamas is one of the most important provinces in the region San Martin, for its great cultural wealth, inhabited by over 3000 Indigenous Quechua speakers and Chazuta is considered “Cultural patrimony of the San Martin Region” because of it’s great contribution to archaeology and popular art, many reasons to be proud.

The lack of recognition and dignity to the importance of folk art, plant medicines and traditions has discouraged youth communities to lose their heritage, the youth are not forgoing with traditional practices and cultural pride identity.
In this regard tourism as an alternative to socioeconomic development for indigenous people, through the promotion of crafts and ancient knowledge.  The purchase of artisan goods and the participation of courses, in turn, helps to preserve traditional techniques and processes.
So thanks to you we can keep these traditions alive.

Treat yourself to a unique, one of a kind cultural experience!

This is not your typical cookie cutter tour operation. Highly recommended for those seeking a relaxed, yet up close and personal experience with the local culture and environment. Daniel our guide took us from San Roque to Lamas where were met with a local family who showed us the exquisite art of chumbe weaving. Everything about it was very hands on. Daniel even took some great pictures for us! After weaving, we were served lunch at a restaurant in San Roque and then went for swim in the river. Lunch was good and the family there very friendly and gracious. Daniel was also very flexibility to accommodate time based on our interests and how we wanted to spend the day. Overall, a great time had all around. This is a must do if you find yourself in Tarapoto.
