  • Description


    Hi! We are Mabe, Alexa, Lan, Joel and Aurelie. We are friends and we are building our magical home in the region of San Martin (35km from Tarapoto). Amairani is a community space in the Peruvian jungle, open to all who seek to know the Amazon jungle. We want to co-create a self-sustainable project, respecting the environment and helping the community around. It's a space for working with the earth in a quiet life, where we learn and share along the way, a space of re-connection with nature and with ourselves.
    Each traveler brings their own experience, knowledge, good energy and love ... all this adds to create this dream in nature.
    Specifically, we produce organic food, we take care of animals, medicinal plants and trees, and we are in the process of building bungalows with natural technics, dry toilets, and a water collection system. We use the principles o permaculture to take care of our magic place.

    Also if you like the adventures there is a Maloca close to the house where you can sleep in tent or hammoc (we provide the material).
    We are Ovo/lacto/vegetarian and we mainly eat fresh products from our garden. We buy once a week dryfood (or what is missing) in Tarapoto.
    We will provide the food on the working days for breakfast, lunch and diner (everybody participate in the preparation and we share the meal) and you are free to eat whatever you want in our place or outside on your days off :)
