Chuncho Lodge is 100% local owned lodge; in Madre de Dios there are over 20 different lodges, all of them offering tour programmers and services to any visitor to in our region.
Of all the lodges, only 3 are local owned, the other lodges belong to foreigner people from other countries and cities. So, you may say, why is that? How can a local people whom own the land cannot start a tourism business in their own land?
This is something that happen very often, if you check other countries where tourism is develop like Costa Rica or Belize, this happens same as in here, in Puerto Maldonado.
