What makes this experience RESPONSible?

Our lodge has been constructed with materials from the area, keeping a strict relationship with the environment. Our sewer system goes to a septic tank where our employees perform the necessary sewage treatment to avoid water pollution. Additionally, organic and inorganic waste is separated, using organic waste as fertilizer and compost. The rest of the trash is delivered to Iquitos City, where plastic will go to a recycling center and the rest to a landfill.

Regarding food, we use fresh products from the area, such as fruits, vegetables, and fish. We have a vegetarian and vegan menu, it is necessary to mention that at the lodge we do not kill any kind of animal, especially those that are in danger of extinction, even if some passengers insist. We have our own organic vegetable garden that works when the river level decreases. We also have a flock of free chickens that give us organic eggs, which are free of animal abuse.

Every small action makes a big difference
• For camping and full-day activities, we use reusable dishes and glasses.
• Cleaning campaigns in the ports of Iquitos are done periodically during the year.
• Muyuna Lodge employs residents of San Juan de Yanayacu and other nearby communities.
• In the Lodge, we wash dirty clothes by hand using a biodegradable detergent, giving work to women. (We do not use iron).
• Plastic bags are recycled and put in the garbage dumps of the rooms.

11Percy, Santiago, Analía. The Sanchez Sarfati Family | Responsible Travel Peru

Percy, Santiago and Analía

In 1999, we were a young couple of Peruvians with their heads full of dreams, looking for adventures throughout Peru. We traveled along the beaches, rivers, valleys, and mountains of Peru, but none of that caused the visual impact like the Amazon River and its jungle.

For this reason, we seek a place far away from civilization, and with the help of the community of San Juan de Yanayacu, our dream came true. The beauty of the Amazon Rainforest was so beautiful that we wanted to share all its wonders with the world. At the same time, we were looking to protect this region from illegal logging and hunting. It was at this moment when we decided to create this life project.

Since then, we have demonstrated to the world a sustainable approach to responsible and conscious tourism. 

Now, our extended family has more than 40 members, including people from Iquitos, Lima and San Juan de Yanayacu. 

All our guides are Peruvian, some speak English and several have been born in the area, growing up with such knowledge that in a given moment can make them a medic or a naturalist, and in other moments they will be so camouflaged with the jungle that you will think that they had a hyper-developed sense of vision and smell.

The community of San Juan de Yanayacu welcomed us with open arms and in a gesture of gratitude, we have created a strategic alliance to preserve the habitat where we are located, benefiting the inhabitants, the animals, the jungle, and our travelers.

We want to contribute and invest in the Peruvian economy. For this reason, we use products that are produced in Peru.

We hope you can help us continue with this beautiful story.
