Located in a remote area of the Amazon jungle in NE Peru on the Mazan River, an area known for its abundant species of flora, fauna and fish. A few years ago at its headwaters, a scientific study was conducted entitled Aguas Sagradas (Sacred Waters) and concluded that the broad biodiversity of this area should be protected. Abundancia Ecolodge complies with most of the proposed International Ecolodge Guidelines noted below. According to Hitesh Mehta, an ecolodge is an “accommodation facility that satisfies at least five of the criteria listed below, three of which must embody the main principles of ecotourism.”
