Musmuki is a community based tourism project located in Vista Alegre, Perú (60km from Leticia, Colombia through the Amazon river) .
Members of this community are making an effort to change their livelihood from natural resources extraction and hunting to a more sustainable way of life through tourism. Their desire is to preserve their territory for the generations to come.
