with farmers host families
We are 40 families from the village of Caño Cristales. We are settlers and have lived for 60 years in the village of La Cachivera. We are dedicated to agriculture, we are passionate about horseback riding, we live from livestock and it has always been our main economic activity, because it is what we have known how to do for years. We are aware that with tourism we can move towards an economy that allows us to take care of the forests and preserve the natural wealth that surrounds us; that is what we want the most.
Our first approach to tourism was in 2012 with the voluntary contribution for income to Caño Cristales, we have used this contribution to benefit and improve the quality of life of the inhabitants of our village and others. With this income we fixed roads, created bridges, helped families in need, and bought school supplies for the children
We currently offer tourism in our village. Today we are about 25 families involved in community-based tourism: we offer guiding, food, canoeing activities to see birds, horseback riding, boat transportation and lodging in our lodges. We are committed to community-based tourism and we work on a rotational system in which we take turns to offer these services and allow everyone to win.
Everyone is invited to discover the Cachivera along with the most beautiful river in the world in Caño Cristales, guided by the local community that was born in this territory and that today is focusing on tourism as a strategy for environmental conservation.
