Fredy W. Dominguez Valdivia…your Amazon guide

(Inhabitant of Manu Amazon, guide at home, University educated in Tourism…and general manager at GreenLand Perú)

This is me, enjoying the Amazon like i used to do it, when living over there.

The main difference today, is that i can live by doing this, and lately (las 20 years) understood the importance of respect for amazon people, nature, and people like you, who wants to preserve this paradise for good of everyone on this planet

Helping the Amazon is a side effect of visitting it, in a responsible way.
