Ese Eja Day Experience

Visit the Infierno village of the Ese Eja tribe for a half-day tour that will introduce you to the guardians of the Amazon. In this village, locals are still very much connected to the jungle. You’ll get to see their handicrafts, as well as the ancient artifacts that still have a role in everyday life. Your hosts are happy to tell you about their culture and explain what these objects mean to them.

Women in the village make woven baskets and wooden carvings. On a visit to the Heritage House, you’ll learn about Ese Eja culture through the old photos and antique clothing. Your visit also includes a demonstration, where a local will show you how they use their handicrafts in everyday life.

After the museum, you’ll learn about how locals fish during a catch-and-release fishing program, one of the sustainable ways the Ese Eja keep themselves fed. If you want, you can have one of the fish you catch cooked for lunch. You can also take a ride in a fiberglass boat — visitors can paddle themselves, or one of the community members can man the boat.

Before you depart, you’ll enjoy a traditional lunch with the locals. They’ll prepare the catch of the day, although a vegetarian option is available as well. This is another excellent chance to get to know the villagers and get some insight into their culture.
