Things that matter to us


Peru has been home to hundreds of indigenous communities for centuries. They are the true heirs of pre-Hispanic cultures and still retain part of their ancestral organisation and worldview. Their knowledge is an invaluable cultural heritage. For some years now, there have been indigenous and peasant communities that have been promoting tourism projects in rural environments. Many of them are driven by women and offer unique experiences of coexistence and cultural immersion in contact with nature.

Tourism is important to boost their economies and generate income for families. However, these experiences must be carried out with due care, under technical criteria and seeking balance. Tourism is a complementary element and not a substitute for peasant economies. Our commitment to offer these experiences requires us to know them directly, both in terms of the quality of their service as well as their local traditions.

Things that matter to us


The tourism industry plays an important role in relation to climate change and its consequences. This implies a great responsibility. The impact of CO2 emissions and its effect on the production of greenhouse gases as a result of the increase in the use of air transport is undeniable. On the other hand, the effects of climate change are especially sensitive for tourism, as it largely depends on the conditions of natural spaces.

In recent years, several reforestation initiatives that seek to alleviate these effects have been started, most of which take place in the jungle. However, many Andean areas also need reforestation projects that incorporate local communities to ensure their sustainability. At Arawi we have been involved in different initiatives of this type through our different partners. This also includes the recovery of ancestral roads, maintenance to fight fires, cultivation of native species, etc. Our purpose is to become increasingly actively involved in these projects. If you want to know more about them and how to get involved too, get in touch with us!

Things that matter to us


At Arawi we actively seek to incorporate the work of women, make their contributions visible, denounce and alleviate inequalities in the areas where we work. They fight to preserve natural spaces from the greed of economic interests. Peruvian women are a symbol of resistance and courage. In a country with high rates of violence against women, recovering their role in the culture is an urgent task.

A few kilometers from Machu Picchu, Julia gives us a master class on sustainability from the daily experience of betting on organic farming. Fruit trees reveal the secret of their flavor: knowledge, care, patience. Visiting her fruit farm, walking the river or sharing a table is a life lesson.

Tourism projects of indigenous and peasant communities are today driven mainly by women. They have recovered and updated ancestral aspects of culture and environmental management, such as the art of weaving and ceramics, or the preparation of Chicha. They are entrepreneurs, scientists, athletes, artists and tourist guides. All these stories make a different journey through Peru.
