    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are located in a small village called Cocachimba in the Amazon cloud forest of northern Perú. This place, facing one of the largest waterfalls in the world (Gocta) is a product of the ancient Chachapoya's civilization. You can explore the epicenter of this culture and learn about its customs, rituals, etc. This place will be an adventure with all the places you can visit alongside the province. There is a lot of hiking to do alongside the waterfall valley. You can also learn some Spanish and visit the town healer and get some magical treatment with his medicinal plants.
