During this expedition, you will live a unique and memorable experience. Between the magnificent landscapes, the cultural exchanges, you will live in total immersion and will fill up with good energies cut from the outside world. As a bonus, you will witness the ancestral dance of Yuruparí, a magical event (unscripted and spontaneous) in danger of extinction. In addition to being an intangible heritage of humanity declared by Unesco, it is an activity that the grandparents of the community wanted to share with outsiders (before they did not show it) because these dances tend to disappear, as the new generations do not practice these sacred acts anymore. Therefore, our presence as visitors means that these dances will be engraved in our memories, in the documentation and will not be forgotten.
